The title says it all. This is my first trip and likely my last, so I'll want to get as much of the experience as possible. I'll be there for about five meals, and I want to get the heck away from the big hotels. I have no idea if there are any specialties of Persian Gulf cuisine, but if there are, I want to try them!
Please don't suggest Turkish places (although I know there's good stuff there) because my next stop on this trip will be Istanbul. Also, it is likely that I will be eating solo, so if there are any places that would be uncomfortable for a Western, non-Arabic speaking woman to eat by herself...you get the idea.
