Photo Of The Moment: Jordanian Egg Sandwiches

AP PHOTO – A man works in a bakery in Amman. The bakery is one of few that make sesame bread used for cheese and grilled eggs sandwiches, nurse a popular and cheap meal served around the clock.

Note: Just to add to the caption, for those interested, I believe the bakery is the Salah il-Deen Bakery in Abdali.


  • Did you know that the best time to get these hearty sesame loaves is around 3 am when they’re steaming hot and fresh?

  • Always and still the best bakery in town, with the most gentle and kind staff. Never miss a chance to stop in to collect ka’ak and oven-baked whole eggs for friends and family. A heartwarming experience that stays with you all day.
