    Default Jordan & middle east

    Going to Jordan soon... any tips for middle east as a vegan?
    thankfully my friend who i'm staying with has a boyfriend who is vegetarian... which should help since even vegetarians are far and few between up there...

    Middle Eastern foods tends to be very vegetarian friendly. Eggs and dairy isn't often used in vegetarian most food that sounds veggie is most likely vegan. Just ask, just in case. Look for falafel, hummus, babaganoush, foul medammas, various salads...

    A useful Arabic word to know is "nabati" which basically means it's free of animal products. "Kadabi" is also useful, it means "fake". So instead of asking for soy milk in a supermarket, ask for "haleeb kadabi" ("fake milk") and they might understand you more.
    Peace, love, and happiness.
