As well as the delicious savoury foods available in Amman there are plenty of tasty desserts to get your teeth into as well.
For example, Kanafeh. This is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert which is soft white cheese with semolina dough. This pastry is heated in semneh (salted butter).
Before being topped with crushed pistachio nuts.
Its a very popular dessert with lots of brightly lit and busy shops around the city. The mixture of crunchy and creamy as well as salty and sweetness is a confusing but not unpleasant food experience!
I also bought a box of baklava from this place to take home with me. I fell in love with this sugary pastry treat in Turkey (read some of my blogs here and here) and couldn't resist stocking up!
