The Ice Cream Crawl 2011!

The Omani Cuisine knows that there is no better cure to the crazy heat of the summer than some delicious cold ice cream, and to help our lovely readers pick the best ice cream place in Muscat, the Omani Cuisine decided to go on a mission next week to have ice cream at all the major ice cream places in town in one single day – we will try them out, compare their offerings, and decide by the end of the day which place serves the best ice cream!

The Ice Cream Crawl will take place on Sunday the 29th of May and its program will be as follows:

  • 3.00pm to 3.45pm – Pinkberry  – Muscat City Center
  • 3.45pm to 4.15pm – Baskin Robins – Muscat City Center
  • 4.30pm to 5.15pm – Tropical – BankMuscat HQ
  • 5.30pm to 6.15pm – Dream Cone – Zakher Mall
  • 6.30pm to 7.15pm – Il Gelato di Bruno – Oasis by the Sea
  • 7.30pm to 8.00pm – Marble Slab Creamery  – Qurum City Center
  • 8.00pm to 9.00pm – Cold Stone – Qurum City Center
  • 9.15pm to 9.45pm – Softy – Ruwi

In hope of making a fair and proper judgement of the ice creams we have on this crawl, the Omani Cuisine has sought the professional assistance of former Forbes Journalist Stephanie Dahl who will be featured heavily as a guest blogger on this mission.

All of our readers are welcome to come cheer for us (and have some ice cream) at any of the places shown in the program above at the timings indicated. It would be fun to meet you guys in person and learn about what you consider to be the best ice cream in town!

You can RSVP to attend the Ice Crawl on Facebook here.

  • This sounds like so much fun, good luck! Just wanted to add that Baskin Robbins in MQ has the best selection, you might want to compare it to MCC/Sarooj :)u00a0

  • Alsoooooooo you might want to try out the rose water popsicle in Muttrah – personaly, I didn’t like it much but I’ve heard a lot of people raving about it

  • Thanks for your feedback Fatma, we have chosen the MCC branch because it will enable us to do two places in one mall. Our program finishes at 9.45, not sure if we will be able to fit any more places after that! :/u00a0

  • “Gelato” is the name of the place that used to be “Il Gelato di Bruno”. I’m assuming they stopped paying the franchise fee once they knew how to make the stuff! Anyway it’s still nice!nnIf you’re in Zakher, why skip Glacier? u00a0It’s an old one, true, but then so’s BR. u00a0Try Glacier’s blueberry yoghurt ice crem too…it is next door to the other one so why not hit both in one go? u00a0nnIs this an open invitation by the way, or do you need to register somehow?

  • Thanks for your comments guys!nn@68ebdd74626113c9d68970a734b7deb3:disqusu00a0u00a0This is an open invitation, anyone can come, but it would nice if you RSVP on Facebook on the link above.
