This is my regular choice for breakfast in Amman

This is a nice place to have a local breakfast Hummus and Foul and Falafil. When ever I am in Amman I like to have breakfast at this place cost arround 2 JD. The Falafil is the best you can have in Amman. Also in the same time it is not a fancy place it is just a l

Although JORDAN is full of traditional places that serve the same type of food... No one does the Hummos better than this place... It gets really crowded on weekends...

We had falafel, fool, udsiyyeh and hummus with tea. And it was all great. Difficult to compare prices since the service and setting you get is very different from traditional small falafel and hummus places. Restaurant and toilets were very clean. Service quick. Bread hot coming every time the basket got empty. The only thing that needs improvement is the... More

I decided with my wife and 2 daughters to experince Amman in the morning and have a breakfast at Abu Jbara in Madina Mounawara street. We were surprised to see such long queue in the morning to have some Foul, Homos, Fatteh or Falafel. We waited about 15 minutes to have a table in the restuarant. We all enjoyed the... More

The usual Arabian food (houmous, ful, falafal, hot bread) done well in a bright, airy and clean restaurant. The food can be eaten in or taken away, I always find the staff very helpful although a bit of Arabic is helpful. The prices are cheap and the restaurant won't scare people new to the Middle East. My family have eaten... More

Abu Jbara is the best restaurant for popular food in Jordan. it has the tastiest felafel ever. The prices compared with other restaurants which provide the same kind of food are a little bit high.
