Kan Zamaan

Nestled on the hilltop of an old Jordanian village and enclosed within the stone walls of an ancient settlement is Kan Zamaan Arabic for once upon time. Kan Zamaan was once the focal point of khirbet Abu Jaber , an isolated rural area developed by merchant brothers for farming and ranching. Impressive 19th century estate dating back to ottoman rule sured as an agricultural warehouse and horse barn before succumbing to ruin. The heritage estate's 21st century renovation into a restaurant incorporates this golden past into the modern , perfectly balancing the old and new. Today, Kan Zamaan is distinguished venue that offers unique , authentic oriental and local cuisine , garnished with forgotten traditional flavors to delight local food lovers. The restaurant consists of three distinct venues : stable transformed into an elegant dining room , bustan Kan Zamaan (the garden) , its stunning breezy patio overlooking the peaceful Al Yadoudeh greenery , and bread and salt , a bakery with homemade , preserved items from our pantry , offered fresh every day on its shelves. Oriental and local cuisine, authentic flavors and expertly made food, art and music and culture: all find their home within the ancient walls of Kan Zamaan. the legacy of once upon a time is now present.

This place brings fond childhood memories. It has been renovated and is now run by a new management (affiliated with the Regency hotel I believe). The food is great, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is fantastic. We tried their made on the spot knafeh once and it was excellent. Really liking the new Kan Zamaan, and we've already been there a few times since it reopened.
