I was reading a great blog entry from ‘summer‘ on www.mimicooks.com. She was talking about Mansaf and it got me thinking. I remember eating Mansaf for the first time. The food was so heavy, all I wanted to do was sleep afterwards. I felt so heavy 🙂 and I said to myself, I am not eating that again. But of course when you go and visit your friends on a Friday afternoon at their house, you’re most likely to be offered a Mansaf, well it was the case for me:-0. I know Mansaf is very hard to make, so I have been told. I don’t know what happened but the more I ate Mansaf, the more I wanted it.
I know everyone talks about Jabri being the best place for Mansaf and the late King Hussein used to eat from Jabri’s but I much prefer to eat Mansaf from the ‘Al-Quds’ restaurant in Down Town. They just simply do good food and the best Mansaf in town. You are not going to find a fancy table, with fancy waiters or fancy cutlery; they only do fancy food.
If you haven’t tried Mansaf, yet then I suggest ‘Al-Quds’ restaurant in Down Town. Enjoy it.
