Filipinos in Oman can now have a taste of home with the opening of a branch of Chowking.
 
The new Chowking restaurant is at the Qurum City Centre in the city of Muscat, the Department of Foreign Affairs said in a news release.
 
"After the formal opening ceremony, eager Filipino patrons, who waited in long queues for a taste of home, flocked (into) the store," according to the DFA.
  
Philippine Charge d'Affaires Jose Garcia III and Chowking Oman owner Ahmed Husain Lasir led the ribbon-cutting ceremonies over the weekend.
 
Chowking Oman General Manager Bunny Malik informed Garcia that the opening of a second store in Muscat is being eyed, the DFA also said.
 
The DFA added that the operation of the first Jollibee restaurant in Oman is also being considered.
 
In a disclosure last May 15, Jollibee Foods Corp. said that as of March 31, it had 509 stores overseas, including 40 Chowking restaurants. It said Chowking has 17 in Dubai and two in Qatar. — ELR, GMA News
