Sufra Restaurant, Al Rainbow St 26, Amman, Jordan

It’s worth making an advance reservation at Sufra, located in a gorgeous, early-20th-century stone villa in the heart of Amman’s popular Rainbow Street. Here, guests gather on shady garden terraces to enjoy traditional Jordanian dishes like mansaf, a filling combination of slow-cooked lamb in yogurt sauce, served with rice and a shower of toasted nuts. For something lighter, try the spectacular array of mezes and fresh juices, or stop by for a long weekend brunch—something of a Sufra institution.
