"CUISINE - Traditional Armenian..." Yerevan Restaurant Tip by kitinka

Yerevan Restaurants: 41 reviews and 79 photos

CUISINE - Traditional Armenian food is a poem, every line of which has its own particular aroma and harkens back to the ancient meals of shepherds and monks, dukes and citizens. Thousands of big and littlesecrets create the fame of traditional Armenian food. Original recipes, spices and certainly the art of culinary give an inimitable piquantness to traditional food. Cheese, greens and lavash - indispensable accompaniment for every meal. Lavash is a small and easy-rolling strip of dough, nearly a meter long, baked on the hot wall of a fireplace - tonir, kindled by dry grape rod. Ancient Armenians were rolling up barbeque (khorovats) in lavash. That tradition is popular up to our days. In the autumn, winter and spring we advise you to try grape - leaf tolma. Tolma is an ancient dish - it was popular in the years before Armenia was aware of cabbage.
