"Jordanian Food with a Picky Eater" by Michaela Arguin
I have tried so many amazing foods here throughout the first two weeks, Jordanian and otherwise! It’s been super interesting trying new foods, especially since at home I eat the same thing everyday.
Here are just some of the photos and foods that my classmates and I have explored so far!
The best meals are the ones that we share as a family all together. Every Thursday night, my host mom has her entire family over and there are two other girls from AMIDEAST that are hosted by their family as well. It’s been great to all hang out together and enjoy amazing food! I’ve been really adventurous in my time here, which is something that I’m proud of. And surprisingly, I haven’t found anything I truly didn’t like, so maybe I’m not that much of a picky eater after all!
Not pictured, but also delicious has been the truffle fries from the Blue Fig in Abdoun, mozzarella sticks at Maestro’s in Weibdeh, and the very traditional dish, mansaf, that my host mom made! These first two weeks here have been amazing and I can’t wait to see what other delicious meals I’ll be having in the next couple of months!
