Bait Al Luban, Oman

One of Oman's most respected traditional restaurants, Bait Al Luban is our best bet in the capital city, Muscat, for a meal of shuwa, a classic celebratory dish of goat marinated in a spiced date paste and roasted in an underground firepit for over six hours, for robust chunks of gamy, fleshy meat.

You'll also find other interesting specialities like harees (chicken slow-cooked with barley and served with a savoury date sauce, with the consistency of creamy congee) and shrimp caught off the Omani coast, simmered in coconut milk gravy and partnered with khubz rakhal, a thin and crackly flatbread.
