From Traditional Dishes To Modern Delights, Exploring The Best Restaurants In Amman For An Unforgettable Dining Experience With Nev
As an avid foodie and one of the founders of the Chefs Delight Awards, I have had the pleasure of working with and interacting with many talented chefs. Dining out at restaurants for menu tastings and new restaurant openings has become a regular part of my routine. I believe that cuisine and dining are a highlight of any traveler’s experience, whether it be in fine dining establishments or traditional restaurants.
During my recent fam trip to Amman, I was excited to explore the culinary offerings of the city. From the first bite to the last, every moment of the culinary journey was a joy. Each restaurant presented a unique experience that showcased the diverse and rich flavors of Jordanian cuisine. It was truly a trip to remember.
Our first stop was Hashem Restaurant for lunch. Located in downtown Amman, this popular spot is known for its delicious falafel and hummus. The atmosphere is lively and bustling, with locals and tourists alike enjoying the flavorful dishes. The highlight of the meal was the freshly baked pita bread, served warm and fluffy straight out of the oven.
Four Seasons Hotel
For our welcome dinner, we were treated to a luxurious dining experience at La Capitale, located within the Four Seasons Hotel. The restaurant boasts a stunning interior, with elegant decor and a cozy atmosphere. The menu features a fusion of French and Jordanian cuisine, with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. The standout dish was the lamb shoulder, cooked to perfection and served with a side of creamy mashed potatoes.
Green Valley Restaurant
The following day, we visited Green Valley Restaurant for lunch. This hidden gem is nestled in the heart of Amman’s Abdoun neighborhood, offering a serene escape from the bustling city. The restaurant specializes in Mediterranean cuisine, with an emphasis on fresh seafood. The grilled octopus was a standout dish, perfectly seasoned and served with a side of grilled vegetables.
For dinner, we visited Tawaheen Alhawa, located in the trendy Abdoun neighborhood. The restaurant offers traditional Jordanian cuisine, with a modern twist. The menu features a variety of meat dishes, including lamb and chicken, as well as vegetarian options. The standout dish was the maqluba, a traditional Jordanian dish made with rice, meat, and vegetables, served upside down to showcase its beautiful presentation.
Our final lunch in Amman was at Haret Jdoudna, a traditional Jordanian restaurant located in a beautifully restored 19th-century house. The menu features a range of classic Jordanian dishes, including mansaf and makmoura. The highlight of the meal was the mezze platter, a selection of small dishes including hummus, baba ghanoush, and stuffed grape leaves.
And last but certainly not least, the lavish breakfast spread at the Four Seasons Hotel was an experience in itself. From freshly squeezed juices to a wide selection of pastries and breakfast dishes, the buffet had something for everyone. The omelet station was a standout, with chefs expertly crafting made-to-order omelets with a variety of fillings.
Overall, the dining scene in Amman is not to be missed. From traditional Jordanian cuisine to international fusion, the city offers a wide range of culinary delights to satisfy any palate.
