The Huffington Post: Eating my way Through Amman

Culinary Travel: Amman, Jordan – as seen on The Huffington Post Travel

I’ve always said that being a food blogger allows me to be an urban explorer from a taste perspective and this has never proved to be true as much as it did on my most recent visit to Amman. Being Jordanian myself I am familiar with the culinary landscape of the city but a recent self-curated food tour allowed me to see Amman through a new lens.
