Amazing Wadi Rum Desert Adventures in Jordan: First things first—Lunch!

Before we start our amazing Wadi Rum Desert adventure, we told our Bedouin guide who happens to have the sexiest 4x4 jeep in Wadi Rum that we first have to feed our grumbling stomachs.

Our lunch in Wadi Rum village and lower foto taken on the road to Wadi Rum village. The rock cliffs and rock formation become finer and stunning as we approach Wadi Rum.

Meet our cool Bedouin guide: Tyseer! I will tell more about him later =)

Tyseer, our Bedouin guide was very straightforward, he asked, ‘Do you want expensive where everyone goes to eat or cheaper but local-Bedouin food?’

Obviously, we chose the latter.

In hindsight the restaurant was a much better option. There were no hordes of noisy tourists, we have lovely views to ourselves and the food was quite local-style and not overpriced yet it was good. In fact it was too much food for lunch haha. We did not realize that it was a whole menu set (2 menu sets!) that Tyseer ordered for us. If we knew, we would have only ordered 1 menu set for the 2 of us.

Food rating: 4 stars out of 5!

We had hot chicken soup for starters.

Grilled chicken flavoured with Arabic spices and herbs, and Makluba (or spelled as: Magluba, Maglouba), a typical Bedouin rice dish with meat and vegetables.

Salad (lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber) and Arabic flat bread.

Our restaurant in Wadi Rum village and the breath taking views... and this is just a teaser.

The one running the restaurant sleeps in a tent inside the restaurant! LOL, funny I thought. Up on the wall (picture frame) is King Abdullah II, King of Jordan.

Next, the start of our Wadi Rum 4x4 desert adventure.
