A small vegetarian cafe in downtown Amman that takes over an alley and is frequented by locals and tourists alike. Offers a very basic menu of Jordanian staples like falafel, hummus, fuul, french fries, pita bread, plus all-you-can-eat raw tomato slices, onion, and mint leaves as condiment. Drinks are limited to bottled water, chai, mint tea, and coke. There is a small cluster of restaurants in this area, and the place on its left also serves vegetarian food.

There is no menu at Hashem. You just sit down at a table, and servers walk around with different trays full of items. Flag down the server who has something you want.

They serve falafel, hummus, pickled vegetables, and beans. You also get pita bread. Sweetened tea is available.

Falafel, hummus and tea will cost you about $3 US, and it's a LOT of food for this small price.

If you are in Amman, you HAVE TO GO HERE.

Pros: All-veg, Tons of food for cheap

Delicious falafel

Delicious, fresh food for only a few JD. The humous and falafel are wonderful (particularly the onion stuffed ones!) and the sides of tomatoes and onions are yummy. Great atmosphere. We ate here on our first night in Amman and returned for every meal! Couldn't recommend this place more.

Pros: Delicious, Affordable, Armosphere

Bustling, delicious, typically Jordanian

Love this place! Hashem is a bit of an institution and everyone in Amman seems to know it.

Hashem occupies an alleyway in downtown Amman, which at first is slightly confusing, until you realise that all the places in the alleyway are part of the restaurant.

It is an informal place, with mostly outdoor seating and some indoor seating on plastic tables and chairs. At mealtimes, it is bustling with Jordanian families, couples and groups of friends, and waiters whizzing around to serve as quickly as possible.

There is no written menu. The food is:
- Falafel: The small ones are bitesize, we got served a few larger ones with onions inside which were delicious
- Hummous: So smooth, so tasty!
- Foul: Beans ground into a lovely paste, drizzled with olive oil and mild peppers
- Bread
- Salad plate
- Mint tea: Best mint tea around. If you're not fond of sugar ask for no sugar as it is very sweet!
==> All for 5 JOD.

Pros: Tasty, Bustling atmosphere, Cheap

One of my best meals in Jordan

Everything I had here was perfect! The fuul and regular falafels were great, but my favorites were definitely the silky smooth humus and the bigger falafels which were stuffed with grilled onions. Fantastic!

Price is excellent at about 1 JD per bowl of fuul/hummus. Two of us stuffed ourselves for 3 JD total.

Pros: Fresh, Fast, Perfectly Delicious
