    Big Smile Number.1 Bakery in Oman

    For those who live in Oman in your opinion what's the best bakery? I don't find the ones we have very appealling and I wanted to know where do you normally go to get your bread/sweets/cakes?

    I buy bread from Al Fair and Carrefour. They are the only two places I know that make multigrain bread and Norlander bread.

    For cakes we usually go to the Intercontinental or the Hyatt.

    Yah for cakes, Intercon is a great choice.
    Al Bustan is also a good backery if you want to order for a party or something.

    There's also "Al-Ragheef Al-Fidhi" in Al-Khoudh Commercial Road. We get our Arabic/Lebnani bread from there, I guess the same with burger buns and hot-dog buns.

    I don't like the ones that come from Switz and Muscat Bakery.

    About Donuts and these things there's nothing better than Sultan Center and Al-Fair.

    But it really depends on the Al-Fair you go to. Some might not have these things available.

    Usually we get our bread from the same bakery Rossonoro mentioned; Al-Ragheef Al-Fidhi, in Al-Khoud Commercial Area.

    I have the code to the lock of her heart.

    I'm curious.. does Oman have it's own kind of bread? And if so, what does it look like and taste like?

    Yes we do we call khubz rkhal, it's round and very very fine! We usually have it with curry or even on it's own.

    I'm not sure of it's ingredients - you'll have to wait for those who know!

    AARGGHH!!! MY EYES! MY EYES!



    Is that pic life size?

    It looks like flat bread.. looks quite like a pancake actually. yummy.

    Is it soft or crisp? And do you fill it and roll it?

    LoL to be honest I don't know how to resize the image! I'll wait for the mods to do it for me mean while you just enjoy looking at it...

    It's soft in the middle with crispy surroundings - some ppl make it all crispy. Usually you'd cut a small piece of the bread and have it with something. I don't think you can fill it up with anything, it's way too fine for that!

    It looks positively yummy.

    How come most arabic bread is flat bread? (as in without yeast) Is it something historically traditional? or maybe religious? or what?

    The crispy one is called "khubz yabis" translates to (dried bread)
    the soft one is called (khobz rkhal)

    aha 'yabis' sounds like a maltese word for "hard"..

    I guess you break off a piece and eat it like a cracker.. Like indian poppadoms.
