    Vegetarians

    by antistar Written Feb 11, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Food in Jordan is largely meat based, with lots of well cooked spit roasts. There are a lot of vegetarian alternatives, but you may find yourself enjoying a regular diet of chickpeas in some form or another, usually either houmous or falafel. The best thing to do is to order a bunch of starters (mezze), which usually offer a wide range of smaller meat free dishes for you to pick and choose from. One thing I found that was universally tasty in Jordan was the lentil soup.

    Overall Jordan's food was very good, and no problem for a vegetarian.

  • Canary restaurant: The best falafel

    by glassgardener Written Mar 7, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The BEST place to buy a falafel sandwich is the Canary.
    Make sure that you get some pickles (pink dyed turnips) and a "haleebe-moss" which is banana and milk smoothie.

    This place is fast paced first thing in the morning as falafel is breakfast. Women are not supposed to enter so ask a man to go in for you.
    It costs about a dollar.

    Favorite Dish: falafel

    Karak Resthouse: Al Karak - A meal near the castle

    by MiguelMV Written Feb 2, 2006

    Situated very close to the entrance of the fortress in Al Karak. This restaurant offers a buffet lunch for 9 dinars (drinks not included). The buffet was not the best that we had during our days in Jordan, but was still ok. If the weather is good, you can take a sit outside, and have lunch with the views of the fortress' walls.

    The Basin: Lunch in Petra

    by MiguelMV Written Jan 30, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well ... don't expect a luxury restaurant. It is just a buffet style restaurant with some local dishes. But the good thing is that it's inside the old city of Petra. So it is a very good option for having lunch in the middle of an ancient city. There are tables outside, so you can enjoy of fabulous views while having lunch.

    Centro Brasserie: Great Salad bar :P

    by ChristinaC Written Nov 2, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's one of the best resturants I went to in Jordan. It has a great atmospher! From first sight it might seem expensive, but I was surprised as it was not more than most other nice resturants in Jordan!

    The food is lovely! and there is alot to choose from! Well I kind of thought that the salad bar was the main menu, as there was alot more than salad, such as pizza's and things, it was more like a buffet lol so I ate too much and couldnt eat anything else :) Though my friend talked me into try some fishy thing, dont know exactly what it was but it tasted GREAT!!!

    The service is amazing! It's sooo fast! and the staff is friendly and they are there to help you the second you look at them!

    In the same building there should be a nightclub, which was closed when we were there, because of Ramadan.

    Bifa Billa: Strong Coffee and Good Shwarmas

    by naruto Updated Jun 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great little cafe that I stopped at for Turkish coffee. Quite yummy and very strong, just the pick-me-up I needed. They have very good shwarmas and hamburgers. They also do milkshakes which I did not try, but looked delicious.

    Prices are quite reasonable, starting for around 500 fils or 50 piastres.

    Hani Ali: Oriental Sweets and Ice Cream!

    by naruto Updated Jun 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hani Ali is situated in Aqaba on Raghadan Street, about five minutes walk from the Alcazar Hotel where I was staying. It sells traditional sweets, pastries and the ice cream is very delicious. You can say it's a sugar-addict paradise. :)

    While I had only ice cream, I noticed on the menu that they also have pasta and fish. Breakfast cost about 1-2 JD, very reasonably priced, and the good location is also a good place for afternoon tea where you can people-watch.

    Favorite Dish: Ice cream!

    The traditional Oriental and Arabian sweets on display look luscious and tempting as well!

    Romero Restaurant: Best Italian Restaurant in Amman

    by Dave_Tan Updated May 5, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dine al fresco in the lovely courtyard in summer or in the nice cosy interior in winter, good food made from fresh ingredients, wide selection of wine, in my opinion the best italian restaurant in Amman.

    Favorite Dish: Crema Di Funghi: cream of mushroom soup
    Prosciutto Crudo: parma ham with melon, avocado or figs
    Ravioli al Salmone: ravioli with salmon in creamy salmon sauce

    Good wine list

    Movenpick: Buffet at the Movenpick Petra

    by mariebcollins Written Mar 29, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    16 JD for the full buffet or 6 JD for soup and salad. 4JD for a giant Amstel beer.

    The soup and salad buffet is by far the better deal as the mains and desserts were only average.

    Favorite Dish: Great breads and salads.

    Pizza Hut: Very uncultural I know but............

    by freya_heaven Updated Oct 11, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very uncultural I know but Pizza Hut in Aquba was the best meal I had in Jordan (Sorry).

    Its not always easy being a veggie in the Middle East. I usually lived on banana or tomato in Pitta!

    Although Falafal is always a wonderful & cheap meal.

    Favorite Dish: Salad & Vegetable Pizza

    Veggie Pizza!

    The restaurant is part of an old building. There are also souvenir shops, a traditional spice shop and more.

    Favorite Dish: The nicest local dishes you can imagine! Wonderful buffet with traditional Arabian food. I loved most a dessert called "Umm Ali" "Ali's Aunt". That is a hot cake with raisins and a nice sauce. Delicious!!!!

    Pick a chicken

    by MalenaN Updated Jan 13, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Before we left Rum village for the desertsafari in Wadi Rum we bought chickens for dinner. I will not tell you how the chicken feathers were taken off, but it was not by hand (at least the chickens were dead before).
    In the evening the meal tasted very good!
