Even those who’ve never been to Yerevan have heard of pakhlava and khash. One of the most prominent features of Armenian cuisine is its tendency to rely on the quality and freshness of the produce, instead of an excess of spices to please the palette. As a result, the dishes are full of flavor that comes from the ingredients, not the additional seasoning. Please don’t watch this slideshow of the delicacies Armenia has to offer on an empty stomach. You have been warned.
