This is why its sidewalk gets so packed when the grill gets cookin’! Even on crisp winter nights, you’ll forget any cold once your teeth sink into their tender brisket that’s as soft as butter.
The Meat Master is Amman’s first gourmet meat store. If you’re a challenge seeker, you can browse through their diverse selection of high-quality cuts and cook a lil’ something yourself at home. But if you’re looking for true gastronomic bliss, you need to put your faith in the masters and try their slow-cooked brisket or smoked short ribs.

It’s hard to cook the perfect steak, and it’s even harder to cook it in front of a hungry audience. At Lucca Steakhouse, it’s second nature.

It’s also worth noting that this place is known for its warm and welcoming staff.
For those of you who get overwhelmed by having too many food options, L’Entrecote is here to save you with its wholesome set menu.

Of course, this wouldn’t be complete without a side of golden crispy fries to dip into the creamy goodness. To top it off, you get to indulge in heavenly ice cream after your meal. What’s better than that?

Pair your meal with one of their artisanal salads and a generous glass of wine and you’re set.
Good food feeds the soul, and no one knows this better than Soul Food. The sight of their fluffy buns, rich patties and dripping cheese is enough to make your soul swoon.

Don’t worry if you’re indecisive; just keep coming back so you can try them all!
Donuts are great. Burgers are great. Bun Meats Dough knew that a crossover between the two would be even greater.

If you’re up for the heat, try their meat-stuffed green chili peppers and spicy grilled Arayes.
It’s hard to have self-control as dozens of mezze bowls land on your table at Fakhreldin. Before you go in for that third deep-fried kubbeh though, remind yourself to save some space for the big finale. Even if you go too hard on the bread at first, you can still take your leisurely time eating and drinking Arak for hours. Just make sure you don’t plan any romantic rendezvous after all the garlic dip.
Kababji is like that friend you can always rely on when you’re in need of a pick-me-up. It’s fast, guaranteed, filling and delicious.
