Barka' Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 54 photos

Barka's claim to fame is its famous omani halwa factory.

What is halwa you ask?
Halwa is a traditional Omani sweet made from sugar, clarified butter, cornstarch and a variety of flavorings including saffron, rose water and sometimes walnuts and almonds.

A lot of Arab countries make something similar - but the Omani version is the original and famous one.
