9.263 Mansaf with Meat and Rise

Mansaf with Meat and Rise (WHAT)


from Jungles (WHERE)

in my room (Marriot Hotel)

-Amman, Jordan-


Mission to Jordan, Day 3 (see previously 9.262 Mixed Grill and All the Fixin’s, Baby!).

In Amman.  Here to attend a Meeting of the Regional Parliamentary Working Group on Universal Health Coverage in the Eastern Mediterranean Region – Tue to Wed.  As focal point for the Asia-Pacific Parliamentarian Forum on Global Health (see most recently 9.231 Boodle Fight), I’m here to help WHO EMRO – which covers North Africa and the Middle East – set up their own forum, aimed for launch sometime in mid-2019.

Mansaf is a Jordanian lamb dish.  Lamb is braised in fermented yogurt, served on steamed rise.

Meat was kinda bland and dried out, showing clear signs of freezer burn.  Assuming this is a poor reflection on the quality of the restaurant, not the dish per se.
