Dates, olives, Omani coffee, tabbouli, fattoush, the smoothest-olive-oil-infused and incredibly delicious baba ganoush, more dates and more coffee all add up to a celebration for your senses as you dine your way through Oman. Dates and coffee are offered to visitors everywhere you go. It's an Omani tradition. The quality of dates depends on the time of the season when they are harvested but they are all superb. All dates are fantastically delicious; the coffee is a mild brew flavoured with spices. The spices can vary from place to place depending on who is making the coffee.
