There is a quote in Jordan which goes something like this:
‘Even when you are full, you can still eat 40 more bites of food’.’
Jordanian cuisine is a rich and enticing blend of Circassian, Palestinian, North African, Persian and Mediterranean with Turkish influences. Many dishes you will come across are those typical of Arabic cuisine and which you may have come across before: falafel, hummus, kebabs, stuffed grape leaves and a wide variety of salads. Jordan cuisine is very much farm to table and there is a rich history of vegetarian and vegan dishes. For those who are vegetarian or vegan, you will most certainly be able to find a good selection of food. If you have allergies, we recommend you stay away from street food.
Sahtein! Enjoy your food!
