Damn price hike

price hike!

Apparently the price of chicken has gone up by 30% in the past few months. The sign in the picture above is dated June 1st, so it might not be the only hike in the price of shawerma. Isn't it amazing that the price of a shawerma has always been 200 baisas. It couldn't last forever. And it hasn't.

Each Shawarma joint is priced differently, 250 bz shawarmas have been around for sometime...

Yah, the shawarma joints charge 250 bz from like way back.

I'm surprised there are still some places that charge 200 bz !!

I haven't eaten a meat shawerma in over ten years myself but I think when it comes to chicken it's always been either 200 or 250 depending on where you buy.

I had a conversation today with someone & been telling me that the prices of chicken are going up.


About the shawarma, I believe you will find it 250 bz everywhere, except for some places, where it might be 200 bz or 300 bz.

it has been 250 bz for long time now. I guess now even the places wehre it used to be 200 are going to make it 250...

At the petrol station next to my house its 200bz. But thats the only place I know that sells it for 200 - although I guess because I dont venture too deeply into Ruwi or Mutrah or those areas, where it would probably be cheaper. Mostly I buy shawermas from Al-Khuwair or Madinat Qaboos, and surrounding areas, where its often 300bz.
