Azaiba, many thanks - you're a star!
If you drive out of the car park main exit from Al Fair, turn left, down to roundabout, go left, go past first group of shops/HSBC Bank on the left then take next left turn and straight ahead you will see the Family Book Shop. To the left there is an alley way. Go up first sets of steps on left, past the elevator and turn right. You will see some "little feet" transfers on the ground which lead to I guess a nursery or something! Mackenzie's is I think is the 2nd entrance on the left. Has a tartan border on the entrance doors. They are open for shopping and take-outs for Ramadan.
Thank you, Azaiba, much appreciated. So far the only places we know in MQ are Muscat Pharmacy, Darcys Kitchen and Al Fair - can you give us any indications as to whereabouts MacKenzies Deli is? The site map on their website just directs to a product list.Ramadan Kareem
You do not have much of a choice here. Al Fair in MQ and Azaiba is where most people shop for meat. There is also a new place called MacKenzie's in MQ near Family Book Store which you could try. You can also order online.http://www.mackenziesdeli.com/
Moved here after seven years in Dubai and we're thoroughly enjoying it. However, perhaps we've been spoiled, we're finding it difficult to buy good, fresh meat. Have bought so-called fresh chicken with a same day production date on the pack, got it home and found it to be very, very off. We've only been here for a few weeks so, what with moving in and getting sorted out in our new home, we've only ventured as far as Carrefour at MCC, Al Fair at MAB just down the road and Lulu near Muscat Grand Mall. Is there anywhere like Butchers Shop & Grill or an independent butchers shop in Muscat which sells reasonable quality beef or lamb?
