Lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel Amman

As I have said in my previous post about Ramadan, the only places you can have lunch is in hotels, and should you be looking for a glass of wine then you need to go to a 4 or 5 star one. So today, we decided to go for lunch at the Four Seasons Hotel, and chose their Asia restaurant. It serves Japanese, Thai and Malaysian dishes for a rather salty check, the food is good though!

Asia is located on the 1st floor of the hotel with a nice view over Amman. The restaurant has a contemporary design and has an open kitchen, a feature we particularly enjoy. They have 3 chefs, 2 from Malaysia and 1 from Thailand. We had a lovely starter, their Thai fish cakes were particularly good. Then I had a Malaysian Nasi Goreng - fried rice, served with a fried egg, satay beef and pickled vegetables; Bobs had a green Thai curry. You should count approximately 15JD per dish (excl. taxes and service charge). The service was not as good as could be expected. (You will notice a sushi is missing! Bobs was too hungry to wait for me to take the picture...)

We then went to the pool. Bibs loves swimming and today was the first time with her daddy. They have an outdoor and indoor pool, the areas are really nice. A fee does apply, but I forgot to check how much it is. We were really impressed by the changing rooms, the areas were lovely, but it wasn't that - no, we loved the fact that there was hair gel, shaving cream available to use - shaving cream yes, even in the ladies, for those who could have forgotten to shave their armpits or legs... love it! Nice little touch.

We had a lovely day, it is so nice to spend some time together. Bibs really loves having her daddy around.

Looks lovely! I'm glad you got to enjoy yourself in London. But it's good to be home, isn't it, wherever home may be! I'm back in Angola now, and it feels so good.

it is nice to be back :) it feels more like home strangely enough, when you have been away for the first time! So got all your shopping done?!

Hello, Babs! Last year Crumz in Abdoun was open for lunch, behind discrete window treatments.

Glad you enjoyed London. I'll be back in JO in a bit to enjoy that strange feeling of home with you. :)
