Petra is most famous for it’s appearance in Indiana Jones’ Last Crusade, the rock-cut city that housed the Holy Grail. For gourmets, Petra is the legendary birthplace of the bold, colourful and aromatic cuisines of the Levant and the Middle East. For diners in Adelaide, Petra Flavours is the holy grail as far as Jordanian cuisine goes, with a menu that focused on South Jordanian dishes in particular. Lentil soups and salads served with freshly baked Arabic breads are just the beginning, and while many of the dishes on offer will be familiar to fans of Middle Eastern eats, specifically Jordanian side dishes like bathinjan, crispy eggplant, fresh cherry tomatoes and feta dressed in lemon juice and garlic will pique adventurous diners’ curiosity. Fresh baked goods, Jordanian burgers and mouthwatering main courses follow. Book a table and find your way to Petra Flavours along O’Connell Street in North Adelaide now.
I very much recommend going to Petra; they're a new business so still sorting out menus, their look etc, but I recommend it based on the kind and attentive service, the food was delicious and exciting with genuine Jordanian dishes (including instructions on how to eat like a local, which is fun). And I always speak well of a place that understands the dip to bread ratio never works - when seeing that we had dip left the owner generously offered us more bread.
Delicious food and personal service. Ambiance is not there as it is more like a take away shop but the decor tries to set a restaurant atmosphere.
