Wild Jordan Café
Created in 1966 under the patronage of the late King Hussein, the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) in Jordan is a nongovernmental organization devoted to the conservation of the country's natural environment. Wild Jordan serves as the society's eco tourism and handicraft enterprise, running a variety of money making ventures such as a large nature shop that offers a wide range of handicrafts and products (silver, leather boxes, soaps, games, creatively designed ostrich eggs) made by the local communities that live in and around the RSCN’s nature reserves—perfect gifts or decoration pieces for your home. The Wild Jordan Café, a beautiful smoke-free restaurant located in the heart of Amman, was built to not only showcase healthy food using raw ingredients extracted from Jordan's own nature reserves, but to give something back to the local communities as well. The menu features a variety of low fat, low carbohydrate recipes across a wide selection of salads, sandwiches, main courses, smoothies, and desserts. Most of the items on the menu get their names from the various nature reserves and communities the café helps to support, such as the Ajloun spinach and mushroom salad, Shomari chicken salad, Debeen greens, and the Mujib chicken wrap. Numerous open terraces overlook the energetic downtown Amman and offer a unique panoramic view of the Citadel all lit up at night. An enjoyable evening on any trip to Amman.
