Ultimate chefs’ battle in the city

Foodies are converging at a popular shopping mall this summer to check out some of the 33 dining options on offer as part of the ongoing ‘The Chef Battle’ Virtual Reality Game.
Visitors can eat their way around the world without having to hop on a plane with a choice of more than 33 restaurants and cafes until August 5. From exclusive restaurants like the Turkish-inspired Köşebaşı and the only Buffalo Wild Wings in the country to authentic Arabic fare at Ahwak Restaurant and tantalising American burgers and hotdogs at Shake Shack, there is something to satisfy every taste at the City Centre Muscat.
With the aim of bringing the latest innovation to the retail industry, City Centre Muscat has rolled out a tasty challenge for visitors this season.
Diners can participate in the ‘The Chef Battle’ virtual reality game at the Central Galleria by redeeming their F&B receipts. Participants will be kitted out with virtual reality gear and will have to slice ingredients flying towards them to earn points for instant prizes, including dining offers, VOX Cinemas movie tickets, Magic Planet cards and mall gift vouchers. Customers gain points by slicing the correct ingredients, whilst losing points if slicing the wrong ingredients.
Shoppers also have the opportunity of winning prizes in a draw when they shop at any of the retail stores at the mall. Eating at the mall will give them more chances of winning this summer.
“City Centre Muscat is your family destination to escape the summer heat and indulge in retail therapy, mouth-watering world cuisine, unlimited entertainment and loads of winning opportunities during the holidays,” said Husam al Mandhari, Senior Mall Manager at City Centre Muscat.
“With 33 restaurants and cafes serving up everything from Arabic and American food to Indian cuisine, visitors will be spoilt for choice. And this year we are making it even more exciting for our diners by challenging them a virtual reality game that will guarantee great and unforgettable moments for everyone, every day.”
