Al Raya Al Shamiya Restaurant

Patisserie, Restaurant, Middle Eastern, Lebanese

This place started out as a butcher and is still run by its original Syrian owners, making it one of the best places to try real Middle Eastern pastries. Syrians, followed by Lebanese, are the master chefs of this trade. Despite this place being rather old, it serves the best Mo’ajanat in Amman, without exaggeration. Its Syrian workers won’t mind handing out a few free samples. You must try their freshly-baked Sfeeha (baked Syrian rectangular-shaped dough topped with meat and onion), being the best in Amman.
