B.B.Q Tonight!!!

We were invited the other day to this place and were actually impressed by the food… Their bread was so yummy…..And they served something very similar to Shuwa*… The dish is called Afghanian meat platter… It was the closest thing to Shuwa we have ever had (and was nonspicy!)… if you are a meat lover then I highly recommend this place…

* Shuwa is a typically Omani delicacy prepared only on very special occasions like Eid and weddings. The method of preparing shuwa is elaborate. The meat is marinated with red pepper, turmeric, coriander, cumin, cardamom, garlic and vinegar and then wrapped in sacks made of either dry banana or palm leaves. These sacks are then thrown into an oven (which is in a pit dug in the ground!!!). Then it’s covered with a lid and sealed so that no smoke escapes. The meat is then cooked for up to 48 hours…. it comes out unbelievably soft from the inside with a crispy crust on the outside!!!.
