Nothing tastes like...
Jordan shares a deep-rooted Arabian-flavoured food culture.
Food is an important part of any travel experience, and Jordan has so much to offer to get your taste buds going, delicious Arabian meze, tasty dips like hummus, baba, ghanoush and foul maddamis and delightful fried pastries… All washed down with some sweet mint tea.
Jordan’s street food is delectable, amid the hustle and bustle of daily life; the air is filled in with enticing aromas. Stalls are laden with bounties and seasonal greens, carts are piled high with breads and nuts while magical ‘holes in the wall’ deliver all types of treats from falafels, shawarma filled with grilled chicken and lamb, stuffed pastries, bread rings, Arabic style pizza with thyme or freshly squeezed fruit juice. No meal or trip to Jordan would be complete without something sweet and sticky to finish. You can pick up Baklava pastries of every shape in shops on every corner. Or you can finish with a classic Arabian sugar-syrup drenched knuafe, a crumbly orange semolina crust filled with soft cheese, or why not try a knafeh soaked in rose- water syrup topped with a sprinkle of pistachios.Read More
