Restaurants and Rain

in a cold Muscat

An intense 2 or 3 hour downpour was enough to create a river of brown sludge, which diverted even the most massive trucks on their route through Ruwi. The flow lifted away cars and more, and left behind a fine silt to dry in the sun. With the rain came a drop in temperature to an unseasonable 20c and far less at night, winter has arrived.

Some consolation was a patchy meal at ChefA on Muttrah’s Corniche. We had Sea-food Soup which was excellent, I had a Corniche Cocktail – fresh juice which was reasonable but the name deserved something outstanding. For mains a plate of tasty Lamb Chops, which arrived nicely covered in Tanoor Bread though unexpectedly nothing else and Hummus and Chicken which was almost as cold as the weather outside.

The restaurant’s location is so good, its décor a compliment to Kargeen, it just needs to get the food a bit better and it will be a winner.
