One of my favorite things about the town where I live is the accessability of food. The Golden Star is located in Alayah Ibra and they sell whole chicken for $3 Canadian and they are worth every cent. The locals that work there (Indians) are super friendly and they are more than willing to serve you first before anyone even if there is a lineup. The chicken is super fresh and goes fantastic with hummus and pita bread from the Muscat bakery next door.
Favorite Dish: The chicken has been a staple in my diet for the past three years and I usually buy two or three a week because each chicken lasts for about two meals. For what you get, the chickens are some of the best bargains in the country :)
The Golden Star / cafe is a great choice in Ibra because it sells whole chickens for $3 US and they are enough for 2 meals plus they are BBQd. The cafe is a nice atmosphere and it is one of the cheapest restaurants in town. The location is great for people watching.
The Sky Line is based on a restaurant near the Emirati border and the staff followed the new boss from the border to Ibra. The food is dirt cheap, great quality and they have a mindboggling range of fresh juices for really cheap. The most expensive dish on the menu is $1.50 US. Great Juices!
Favorite Dish: Fruit Cocktail is Amazing not to mention the club sandwich.
