Habiba Knafeh

Delicious Sweets in Downtown Amman

Articles, Translations

You can spend a great evening in Jordan’s capital, Amman, strolling through the streets of its crowded downtown and trying the mouthwatering food sold by the street vendors.

Along the streets of the city center are shops and kiosks serving fresh juice and food including richly flavored Hummus, hot Falafel, tasty Shawerma and grilled meat or chicken served on skewers.

The best downtown Amman has to offer, however, is Arabic sweets. For delicious Knafeh, head to Habiba, a small shop tucked in an alleyway on King Faisal Street near the Arab Bank building. Habiba is famous for its Knafeh, made from a special kind of dough and goat cheese and is served hot and drizzled with syrup; the taste is heavenly.
