This spot is one of the most popular places in downtown Amman, hidden in a small alleyway. Come grab a plate of knafeh, which is happily inexpensive.

If you are in Amman, Habibah is one of the oldest and best sweet shops in amman. They also do catering. I had a Kenafe station at my wedding, they made it on site and it was a wow factor :)

Always fresh out of the oven kunafah. Best if eaten right then and there before it cools. Fast service and good price. Service is acceptable.
