Vegetarians are in luck in Jordan: it's very easy to survive without eating meat. Although vegetarianism as a concept isn't widely understood (Jordanians love their meat) the food culture naturally relies on lots of fresh vegetables, beans and pulses.
Jordan is no exception and is a wonderful destination for any foodie, including vegan ones. Historically, food from this part of the Middle East was very light on meat and other animal products, with legumes, rice, fruit, vegetables, olive oil, and bread making up the bulk of what people ate.
No problem bringing your own alcohol to Jordan. Beers are readily available at most restaurants but no harm bringing your favorite.
In Jordan, the diet is mainly based on wheat, rice, vegetables, and foods of animal origin (milk/dairy products, and meat). Dietary diversification has improved and is currently quite high.
The entire experience begins at 6.30 p.m. and happens nearly every night.
