2. WARAK ENAB – Stuffed grape leaves

Warak enab is almost everyone’s favorite Jordanian Foods. It is basically grape leaves stuffed with a special dressing of rice and meat, and cooked in a giant pot, sometimes alongside other stuffed vegetables, like aubergines, zucchinis, green peppers. when I was in Jordan I had warak enab a number of times as a mezze dish, usually served cold and with a sour taste from pickled grape leaves. But the best version I had tasted was a home-made meal.

Molokhia is a rather an odd looking dish that doesn’t quite please the eye on first sight, but will instantly have you head over heels from the first bite. It consists of a green herb, molokhia, cooked until slimy, with rice and chicken aside.You should attempt to have molokhia with a squeeze of lemon juice, and, if daring enough, a small tablespoon of hot chili sauce.
