Falafel Al Quds was the name on everyone’s lips.You must try the best falafel sandwich in Jordan they all said!
I had heard this from Jordanian friends in Perth, my fellow participants in a Jordanian cooking class and even the concierge mentioned it.
I had to go….The best falafel sandwich in Amman could not be missed!
Rainbow Street was not far from where I was staying so I headed off to this trendy street full of cafes, restaurants and art galleries. It comes alive at night but during the day it is much quieter.
Just past 1st Circle I spotted the little lime green, hole in the wall shop.

I stood at the entrance watching the falafel maker do his job. Small balls of chickpea mixture were quickly rolled and dropped into the boiling oil, only to emerge a few seconds later, cooked and ready to be popped into a delicious sandwich.
