Jordanian cities are bustling cosmopolitan centers that offer an extensive range
of restaurants serving most popular international cuisines. From Italian to Japanese,
Chinese, Mongolian, and just about anything under the sun, Jordan is a culinary
paradise. Visitors should be sure to try the local food, and there are a lot of
good traditional restaurants to choose from, many of which also provide live entertainment.
Coffee shops, both traditional and modern, are popular meeting places, and they
seem to appear on almost every street. Also, because the Jordanian people are particularly
fond of sweet things, there are many excellent patisseries. Several international
fast food chains are represented in Amman and other cities in Jordan.
