The city has much to offer culinary-wise, so plan on sampling some mouthwatering food, be it from a downtown stand specializing in fresh falafel or a high-end sushi restaurant. With an emerging cultural and architectural scene, Amman offers several pockets of hidden treasures that you should seek out during your journey.
