They say breakfast is the best meal of the day, clearly they forgot about brunch. Woke up late and had a meal full of guilty pleasures? Decided lunch just isn’t worth the wait? There’s our favorite B word to save the day. Well hello there brunch, is that you? The Tip n’ Tag team went on an adventure to find you the best brunch spots in Amman, so brunch your way out of bed and indulge in a combination of sweet and savory flavors.
On Fridays, we brunch. Nothing says brunch better than a 360 view of Amman, seafood on ice, premium BBQ grills, live stations, exquisite desserts and a wide selection of beverages. Brunch at ThreeSixty is soon becoming one of those go to staples for all those who love international buffets in Amman. The fun times don’t end there though, while you move from one live station to the next, your kids will be too busy having a blast with the face painters, balloon-shapers, and the cooking teachers. Win-win to say the least.
