Super tasty food! We are two vegetarians and we got the vegetarian sawany and they helped us adjust the maqlubah to make it vegetarian as well. Combined with the flat bread and delicious fresh lemon mint & pineapple juice was just what we needed after...a long day exploring Petra! Highly recommend!More
