Travel deeper What to do

Jordan: Hikayet Sitti (homemade food experience)

December 7, 2016

Hikayet Sitti (Tales of my Granny’s Place) is a restaurant located in Madaba, Jordan offering homemade food from a friendly and funny local Jordanian family. Forget the standard restaurant setting, this is literally their grandmother’s house (a gift to the couple) and was a real highlight of my trip. Even if you are not staying nearby I recommend the trip to this place; I feel very comfortable, as a foodie, telling you that the food is amazing!

We were offered a section of starters, from the fabulous hummus you see in the feature image of this post, to tahini, to this awesome cauliflower/ courgette dish which I am still currently dreaming about to this day. When the main came, I dug deep to try to finish it all – the portions were really generous! Homemade cookies and fruits are served to finish alongside juices, tea/coffee and wine/beer throughout the meal.

As I did this through work we didn’t receive any information about the prices! However if you drop them an email, I’m sure they’ll be happy to let you know.
