Must taste if you are visiting jordan

Authentic food at premuim quality, tha best falafel,humus,fatta you will eat. The seating is nice too. If you are in a hurry you can grab a sandwich pretty fast. I am from Jordan and this is by far my favourite flafel resturant.

If you don't read arabic, ask your Local friends to bring you there... discover all kind of different ways to serve Humus, falafel and foohl... but don't expect anything else... you won't have room left for it in any case.

Street food is all about turnover. The busier, the fresher. And nobody beats Abu Jbara at that. Everything here is delicious, and the fresh bread being passed around seals the deal. Don't miss it.

Homos, Foul, Msabaha, Fateh, Falafel. It is the same all over Jordan but very very Expensive! You can get the same food with less money in down town!

We went to have a meal at Abu Jbara, then we decide to take home order. We order Fateh , Fool and Falafel, went home made tea and start eating . Its just amazing authentic taste of both the fool, Fateh and the Falafel, not heavy not oily just right.

I always make a visit to Abu Jbara when I visit Amman. A non-pretentious clean place with sturdy wooden tables and chairs. Good attentive and prompt service. Great homous, feti, foul, falafel just as the Jordanians like it. Good quality and tasty dishes. Don't expect any flowery service of condiments - this place is good at provided the dishes they...
