About the Jordan Heritage RestaurantThe Jordan Heritage Restaurant will take you on a tour all over Jordan with some well-known dishes such as Mansaf or Maqloobah, and maybe not so well known ones, such as Basbasoan from Al-Salt, Makmora from Irbid or Kushna/Kushneh from Aqaba. The restaurant is located in a quiet corner of Webdeh, has a huge courtyard that offers wonderful outdoor seating during summer and indoor seating in an old house which soon will also offer accommodation. Inside you will find some smaller handcrafted items and fashion representing typical Jordanian heritage.
Dishes From all Over Jordan at the Jordan Heritage RestaurantThe menu has plenty to offer. Maybe even a bit too much. After five years of research, JHR, operated under a non-profit NGO, is proud to offer 45 different dishes plus seasonal menus. It took us some while to decide, but we also got some recommendations. I definitely wanted to taste the not so common dishes that you won’t find in every Arabic restaurant. The ingredients come from six different governorates and local families are included in the stories and making of the food. We started with Haliva (Amman), Circassian style pastry filled with cheese and Fatet Kishek (Northern Regions), and a Freekeh Salad. The latter was tasty, marinated with Pomegranate Seed, Chickpeas, and Beetroot. The Pastry was fine too, but the Fatet was not my favorite, to be honest.
ConclusionWe finished our visit to the Jordan Heritage Restaurant with drinking tea outside on the terrace, watching the sunset, and enjoying the quiet atmosphere. All in all, it was great to taste the different Jordanian dishes and try out some new food. The Jordan Heritage Restaurant just launched their Winter menu, so make sure to check that out. I would like to express a big thank you to JHR for having us over to their restaurant and providing excellent food.
