If I have to pick just one thing that Jordan does well, I pick the country’s selection of bread. I’m not just talking about the traditional Jordanian bread, but also the wide-range of not so Middle Eastern bread. From French baguettes, German Vollkornbrot, Austrian Schwarzbrot, to my personal favorite, sourdough, you can find pretty much any type of bread you’re looking for in Amman. And if you need gluten-free, sugar-free, lactose-free, you can find that too!
