Eating in Amman
I've been wanting to post about the food here for a while, but I keep forgetting to take the photos I need! But during the weekend I finally remembered to take the camera out.
While the following isn't traditional Jordanian food, it's regional, coming from neighboring Lebannon. Zaatar W Zeit serves traditional Lebanese snack foods with a modern twist.
For starters, we ordered manakeesh (flat bread with different toppings). Ours was topped with zaatar (dried thyme), which is one of the usual ways it's served.
We also ordered salads, which accompany any traditional meal here. Jordan ordered a Caesar salad (not quite traditional) and mine had different greens with halloumi cheese (it's rather salty).
Finally, for the main dish we each ordered a flat bread wrap. Jordan had spicy chicken and I had bacon and cheese. Any bacon you get here will be beef since Muslims don't eat pork.
A very delicious meal!
I love digital scrapbooking. I also love to read and bake cookies. Especially while drinking tea. I've lived around the world, and love to travel, which is usually the theme of most of my scrapping projects.
