On Day 8 of our trip to Jordan, we drove from Wadi Rum to the Dead Sea. But in the morning before we left, we first had a camel ride in the desert. It was amazing to see Wadi Rum from the back of a camel, such a peaceful way to experience Wadi Rum. Once we reached the Dead Sea we enjoyed a couple of excellent Lebanese meals.
01:37 Camel Ride at Wadi Rum - Along with a truck safari, one of the best ways to see Wadi Rum is my taking a camel ride. Due to the rain, we couldn’t ride camels the day before, so we decided to ride today in the morning. Although it quite hurt my legs, it was well worth it, and a very fun way to see Wadi Rum. After having breakfast at the tented camp, and riding the camels, we jumped in the car and started driving towards the Dead Sea.
05:08 Mount Nebo - 1 JD ($1.41) - On the way to the Dead Sea, we stopped off at Mount Nebo, the place where God showed Moses the promised land with a view overlooking an expansive area of land, we could even see the Dead Sea. It was an amazing view.
05:59 Ocean Restaurant (Dead Sea) - As soon as we reached the Dead Sea, we were all very hungry, so we stopped at Ocean Restaurant, a Lebanese restaurant with a view of the sea. All of a sudden they started bringing masses of mezze to our table, until the point where there was literally not a single empty space on our table. There were so many different dips and appetizer dishes to choose from including cheese sticks, kibbeh, heart of palm salad, hummus, grape leaves, tabbouleh, and moutabel. There were so many different Lebanese mezze dishes that I forgot all about the Dead Sea! For our main dish at Ocean Restaurant we had a dish called sayadieh, which is a seafood platter including fish and biryani rice served with a tomato sauce. There was both fried and grilled fish, and what I really liked in the dish was that it was served with a deep fried onion, which tasted fantastic. For dessert, they brought out giant plates of fruit and a variety of different desserts including osmalieh and aish el saraya.
13:13 Crowne Plaza Jordan Dead Sea Resort - After our incredible late lunch, we drove to the Crown Plaza Resort, and checked in. We stayed just for one night.
14:07 Burj Al Hamam - Lebanese Restaurant at Crown Plaza Hotel - For dinner we ate at Burj Al Hamam, one of the most well known restaurant names in Lebanese food in Jordan. Again, we were served an impressive array of different mezze starter dishes, but they served us a few dishes that were different from what we had eaten for lunch including kibbeh nayyeh. I’ve always been a huge fan of different types of raw meat dishes, and kibbeh nayyeh is the Lebanese version of raw minced beef mixed with a variety of spices. It’s typically eaten with garlic sauce and olive oil to garnish, and scooped up with pieces of bread. It was amazing. For our main dish we had mixed grill, including kebabs, lamb pieces, and chicken, and then kebab khashkhash, kebabs in tomato sauce. Again, the food was excellent.

Thank you very much for watching this Jordan food and travel video!
How does Mark manage to swallow a whole mouthful of food without chewing ? I think his attempts to combine all ingredients of a dish together as a taste test is a good idea. It seems the secret of his food tasting videos is because he has camera-charisma. I wish his wife and son were included more often in his videos as they make a happy family. Good luck Mark in all your future eating adventures ! . I enjoy watching your videos very much.
Mark, I love the way you describe the food and the Flavors... i am in love with all the cultural foods you try.. my favorites are the Mexican and the Chinese etc. Ive gone as far as to see the list of foods you have tried and have looked a few up.. Keep up the good work.. you are bringing the Cultures Home to those of us who cant travel.. I love it..
Camel look so comical that long nose and the long eye lash, and the way he Move his mouth. He make me laugh every time I see one a close up. Remind me of a Moroccan who work at our restaurant his name is muse but everyone called him moose.
I really want to visit Jordan some day. When you ride a camel, it is a bit like riding a horse. Get a slight rocking motion with you hips to match the movement of the steed. That will take most of the bumping out. See movie " Lawrence of Arabia " to see proper seating of a camel. It is different than a horse. When the camel stands up or sets down, you should grip with your legs and put both arms up in the air. It is an Arab macho thing. I made the mistake of riding down Mt. Sania on a camel in Egypt. At Mt Sinai people climb the mountain in the middle of the night and they are on the top of the world for sunrise. If you ride down a mountain on a camel. all of your weight rests on your balls.
Martin thank you and your wife are such a beautiful couple she's always happy you're always happy I know you guys probably not happy all the time but I'm so glad to see something positive on YouTube and I just love your videos I love the food I got a lot of places to go getting ready to retire in a couple years right now
Mark, you and Ying are the BEST EVER duo to have ever graced Youtube. Your amazing enthusiasm and Ying's sweetness just makes the videos such a pleasurable and happy time pass. Love the content as it inspires me and my wife to travel for food too and also create great dishes for when we get back to the UK. Saw the other new video in which you actually cook yourself, which I think is a great idea in order to evolve the content you produce. Absolutely impeccable work mate, do NOT give it up.......EVER!!!!! All the very best to you, Ying and Mika (apologies for spelling of your sons name).
Wow.. ur videos are really so perfect and clear. I just forget the time while watching them. Ur the best food vlogger. Keep making more nice videos.. thumbs up for ur work Mark and ying. And my hugs for the little champ michah.
How come you get to eat delicious looking food and we only get to watch? I want some tabouleh with pita and I take it you drink? Cuz I'd be drinking some beer or liquor with all that delicious looking food.
Mark, the good thing about your posts is they always remain so fresh. I saw this a while back. Watching it again and I still enjoy it. Well done. We all have very complicated lives, and after a long day, the experience of watching your posts gives us much needed relief and relaxation. Thanks
God of Abraham bless you, thank you soooo much for this video. It is beautiful and informative. ❤ it!!!
So, this area at Mt. Neob, is the promise land, Israel, towards the south of it, or what direction?
And is Jordanian food the same Lebanese food, even though Jordan and Lebanon are different countries?
The Mistakes Men Make Greater rewards carry greater risk, and this same principle applies to international dating. A beautiful and loving foreign bride is the life-time prize for men who can avoid the hazards of international dating. I have seen thousands of interactions between American men and Colombian women. From these observations you will have the opportunity to learn from the mistakes I and others have made during our search for foreign brides. While there is no bump-free path to love, there are established methods to accomplish the goal of finding an exceptional foreign bride. What you are about to learn no international matchmaking site will tell you. It’s strong, direct, provoking, and it may even scare you away, but in the end you will see why it shouldn’t. We enlighten you to the realities of foreign women and international dating, so that you can better manage and function in a different cultural environment. It’s a candid insight into Colombian women, which can be applicable to most foreign women in underdeveloped countries, and the mistakes men make in search of foreign brides, and the steps you can take to avoid such errors. The fact that you understand your future bride may not be in your hometown distinguishes you from the majority of your fellow men. By following our advice and understanding the elements of your quest, you can continue to distinguish yourself from the majority and avoid the following mistakes most men make in their search for foreign brides.
Ignoring the Numbers.
The number one mistake men make in looking for a foreign bride is meeting too few women. In your home country you would meet and date one woman at a time. But to travel thousands of miles, spend thousands of dollars, and use your limited vacation time to meet one foreign woman is a plot better suited for a fictional romantic movie. It is not a successful route for finding a foreign bride. Over ninety percent of the men who travel to a foreign country to meet one potential foreign partner never marry. Ask yourself, did you marry the last woman you went out with? Did you marry the one before that, or the one before that? Probably not, yet for some reason guys think by going to a foreign country those poor odds of meeting your wife on your next date disappears. You are asking to fail by searching for a foreign bride and dating her in the same manner as you would women from you home country. Your approach must change. The women are different in behavior from what you are use to, their culture is unfamiliar to you, the surroundings are new and outside your element of control, your investment in time and money is much larger, and your window of opportunity during a short visit is smaller. The risk in planning to meet only one Colombian woman is high. I have had clients spend months writing to one Latin woman only to realize before they can unpack their suitcase that she is not the woman for them. I have had many men call us or come to our door with sad stories of how they were suppose to meet a woman they were communicating with that never showed up at the airport, or the woman they met was not right for them, or had a boyfriend, or was not spending enough time with them, and they were now in a strange city not knowing what to do. They did the worst thing possible in international dating: visit one foreign woman. It is basic common sense that the more women you meet the greater your odds of success in finding a foreign bride. It is a fact that decision-making improves when you expose yourself to more options (in this case foreign women), and what’s a more important decision than selecting a wife. We work on providing you as many options as possible in the shortest amount of time so you can spend the majority of your stay dating your number one choice. Don’t bind yourself to the past conditions of domestic dating and limit your options when you have the opportunity to meet many foreign women, one who may be a wonderful and unexpected surprise that would not have made your list of one.
