There are about three branches of Habibah in the downtown, the famous and most delicious branch is the one close to the Arab Bank main building and Abu Ali book store. As soon as you reach there, you will see a long queue of customers coming to buy Konafa, there is no place to sit inside the shop, just pay,... More

This is absolutely a classic, must-have experience in Amman. Truly, this is the best Kanafeh I've ever had. My advice is this: there are branches of this bakery all over Amman, but you have to go to the original branch in Wast Al-Balad (downtown) It's in an alley between a book stall (with pictures of the Royal Family on top)...

Had the chance to visit the original branch in downtown Amman, being an Arab origin, it was an outstanding experience, the taste of freshly made "Kunava" & "Mabroma" still tickles my senses,,,,,😍 For sure will visit again before traveling back home 👍🏼

You can buy your hot piece of Knafeh and have it in the street. Really, nothing like the quality and authenticity of the downtown branch.

Our guide recommended stopping here for a mid morning snack - we were not disappointed! We were introduced to the specialty called Kanafeh which is a cheese pastry that is heated in a buttered pan, topped with a mild white cheese, rolled up or covered with more pastry and then topped with a sugar syrup with a hint of orange....

After a meal at one of the downtown restaurants this is a great place to have desert. Or pick up a plate of kunafa and take it home.

I had the chance to try that soft kunafa (topped with semolina flour). I wanted to try that harsh kunafa (topped with shredded wheat), but the color looks too artificial. I went to the location in old downtown. That is a small hole in a wall place in the back alley. May have a hard time finding it. That top... More
