There is no new food in this entry at all, but I would be seriously remiss if I didn’t mention Hamesh restaurant in downtown Amman. We ate here two of our three lunches in Amman and enjoyed every bite. They serve the basics – falafel, hummus, foul, bread, tomatoes, tea – but everything is seriously fresh and delicious. You can watch them make your falafel if you want! We left every day filled to the brim and very satisfied. The green stuff on the hummus and foul is a kind of spicy chili sauce, perfect for adding a bit of extra taste to a slightly dull bowl of beans.
If you find yourself in Amman, you absolutely must find your way downtown and grab a table at this institution. You will not be disappointed.
