Food of Wahiba Sands
At Sharqiya sands, the food choices are all local items such as Harees (wheat mixed with meat), Kebabs and Machboos (rice with saffron and spicy meat). The local Omani beverage is Laban, which is salty buttermilk. Khawa is another favourite drink, which is made from coffee and cardamom powder.
Since Oman is a Muslim country, alcohol can only be bought by residents. However, some licensed hotels and restaurants do sell them. The drinking age in Oman is 21. You can drink alcohol at the Al Sharqiya Sands Hotel. They also offer local and international food.
Food for Indians in Wahiba Sands
