Birthday @ Pavo Real

‘Getting into Madinat Qaboos, Anjan drove to the Al Madina Plaza, where Pavo Real was located.

As they reached their assigned table, the waiter pulled out the chair for Jaya to sit. He placed a bottle of mineral water and asked what drinks they would prefer.

“Two large Margaritas please with a plate of tacos and chicken enchiladas”, said Anjan. Pavo Real was a favourite of Jaya and Anjan knew what she liked.

The margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila mixed with orange-flavoured liqueur and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the glass rim.

After the waiter had gone. Anjan pulled out the birthday gift and handed it over to his wife. Jaya opened the gift box and gave a squeal of delight when she saw the pendant set.’

Pavo Real, also known as “the Mexican”, is an exclusive restaurant in the up-market neighbourhood of Madinat Qaboos in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. Commencing operations in 1993, it offers special evenings with changing themes, great food, music and Margaritas !

    1. Hi there,

      I am delighted to come across another kindred soul who too carries great memories of Pavo Real! I am sure you would love ‘Fault Lines’ in ‘The Chronicler of the Hooghly.

      Stay blessed.

  1. I appreciate your support Sue. More than sales, I would be interested in receiving critical comments around what I have tried to convey as part of my crucible tales. That is something I remain excited about.

    With blessings
