Three sisters founded this restaurant (“grandmother’s house”) in one of Amman’s oldest neighborhoods to keep alive their grandmother’s recipes in the space where she once cooked herself. To that end, Beit Sitti encompasses a restaurant, a cooking school, and a shop selling gourmet items like pomegranate molasses. Visitors can go the hands-on route—learning to cook a traditional four-course meal—or simply show up for a hearty dinner that includes mujadara, a lentil, rice, and caramelized onion dish. Not only does the Beit Sitti experience taste good, it also feels good, as the company works with local women, encouraging them to teach as a way to support their families.
