Indulging in the food and drink of Jordan is a culinary adventure that is not to be missed. The country boasts a vibrant food scene that reflects its rich history and cultural heritage. From the classic lamb and rice dish mansaf to the popular street foods of falafel and shawarma, Jordanian cuisine is an explosion of flavors and aromas that tantalize the senses. Jordanian cuisine is heavily influenced by the diverse population of the country, which has brought an array of flavors from their home countries, including Syrian, Lebanese, Israeli, and Palestinian influences. Local ingredients such as dates, olives, and spices play a prominent role in Jordanian cuisine, and fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, and fish are widely available. For those looking for a unique dining experience, Jordan has much to offer, including the Bedouin tradition of zarb, where meat and vegetables are slow-cooked in a pit underground – something you can experience for yourself on our overnight tours of Wadi Rum. With its blend of traditional recipes and modern flair, Jordanian cuisine is a culinary delight that will leave you wanting more.
