Right next to the streets with the umbrellas. We stopped for a drink and ice cream. The ice cream was good. We paid 10 JOD for two soft drinks a d ice cream. Nice to sit on the balcony and people watch.

It is always a pleasure to go down to the old part of Amman. Jafra is always full and gives you a sense of tradition as soon as you walk in. The atmosphere always brings me back, and it is really nice during Ramadan.

Beautiful Restaurant - had an amazing dinner & most delicious Manakesh. Symbolism of the name and the associated past with the namesake restaurant is heartbreaking. But in one word speaks volumes of the country's history. I must visit for a literary or history fanatic.
