Blue Fig

I’m not a huge fan of the Blue Fig Cafe, in Abdoun, but since I’ve decided that everyone in our Arabic class will get a shout-out in one form or another on this blog, I’m mentioning it.

Julian’s reference is further down the page from a couple of weeks back, and this is Tim’s! Earlier this evening Tim had asked whether smoking is allowed in the Blue Fig. I honestly don’t remember, but since most places here seem to allow smoking (but then, I’m not a smoker, so am I really paying attention?), I assume it does.

There’s also a patio in the back of the restaurant which almost definitely means that carcinogenics are more than welcome :-).

And THAT is the connection between the Blue Fig, Tim J., and this blog!

Actually, I thought about writing to Lonely Planet (who offer a discount on your next purchase of their merchandise if you give them helpful info) about how they mention just one place called the Blue Fig in Amman, while I’ve discovered at least two. One is a coffee place and the other a quasi-ritzy expat magnet, so they’re not easily confused. Hmmm…
