Our Local Experts say:

Armenian Cuisine has developed over centuries with many regional influences from the Mediterranean, Middle East, Caucasus, Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

Similar to Turkish cuisine, Armenian dishes rely heavily on the use of eggplant, lamb, yoghurt, fruit, nuts and bread, and are usually prepared either by stuffing, pureeing or frothing. There are many Armenian restaurants in Istanbul serving mouthwatering mezes and other dishes.
