Famous Foods to Try in Jordan

No reviews, be the first!

There are two things to prepare yourself for with Jordanian food: the fantastic quality and the fantastic quantity! For Jordanians, eating is a very social affair so meals can last for hours with up to ten courses of food borrowed from around the region, but uniquely Jordanian.

Familial middle-eastern dips such as hummus, babaghanoush and maddamis are complemented with labaneh (a yoghurt cheese) and khobez  (a Jordanian pita bread).

Khobez is a staple part of almost every Jordanian meal and is best eaten fresh out of the oven. Many of these dishes would be the focal point of a mezze spread, which often is of such a large portion it may satisfy in place of a main meal.
