We were recommended this place by a local friend. Being tired of Falafel we wanted to try some Jordanian dishes . Loved walking past the sweets to get into the restaurant. Great appetiser. Went first for the Mansaf - the traditional dish of lamb and rice in a yoghurt sauce. Wasn't my favourite but loved the lentil soup, chicken and onions on bread. But very best of all a pudding - afraid I don't know the name but it's in an individual metal dish and is turned upside down to serve. A superior creme caramel. Delicious. All food reasonably priced.

Most all visitors to Amman will find themselves at some point on Rainbow St, and this is a perfect snack of meal for quite little. If the weather is nice continue on down the street and find a seat at the overlook of the old city and the world's 7th highest flagpole, the Raghadan Flagpole across the small valley.

This little Falafel shop on Rainbow St is very popular- there'll almost always be a few other people queuing to get a sandwich. Like practically all falafel in Jordan, it's ridiculously cheap- around 75 quirsh (cents) for a sandwich. But while the falafel was good, the sub-rolls they serve it on really took away from the taste for me. Traditionally falafel is served on thinner pita; it lets you experience the awesome taste of the falafel, rather than just tasting bread.
If you really want falafel, I'd recommend walking to Wast al-Balad and getting some from Hashem, or from the local chain Hamadas.

I refer to falafel as "the hot dog of Jordan". Whether that's an appropriate comparison is debatable, but the bottom line is no visit to Amman would be complete without at stop at Al-Quds. Located on the hip Rainbow Street, be prepared to wait in line, but don't worry, it moves fast and you'll be rewarded for your patience. I got two orders--one spicy and one regular. Each had a generous portion of falafel, tahini sauce, and pickles. We took our package down the block to a small sit down area with a nice overlook of Amman. Some film makers asked if they could do a quick shoot of us---the topic--you guessed it--"tourists in Jordan" Check out Al-Quds!

Delicious falafel grilled in a white sandwich bread. Don't forget to ask for their spicy paste and pickled cucumbers for a wholesome taste
