A video went viral on social media platforms, showing a Jordanian man flipping over a Maqluba pot in front of foreign tourists at a restaurant in Jordan.
The Jordanian photographer, Fadi Abu Jaber posted the video on his Instagram official account and captioned it: "Flipped over! Some people call it upside down, but we don't agree...The good stuff is down, we need to flip it over to get it right side up!"
If you're not familiar with Arabic cuisine, Maqluba is a traditional Palestinian rice dish cooked with plenty of spices and aubergines and/or cauliflower.
The tasty dish, translated into "upside down," gets its name from the act of flipping the pot upside down, once it’s been cooked, and removing the pot to reveal a layer of delicious onions, aubergines, cauliflowers and meat/chicken resting on top (which were technically at the bottom first).
