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
- 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.
Tasty, Bustling atmosphere, Cheap
