Taste of Yerevan Food Tour
This food tour gives travelers to Armenia a taste of local food and drinks with details about each one of them and a general info about the historic and modern culinary traditions of the country. We talk about the original food from the Armenian Highland and Kilikia, all the way to modern day Republic of Armenia, as well as the similarities and the differences with the neighboring Caucasian, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines.
Armenian food is famous for it’s rich and fresh meat and vegetables, Matsun (fresh yogurt), Panir (cheese) and breads and sweets. The variety of the menu is so big, but we will give you the opportunity to taste some of the must-eats in Yerevan and give you tips on what to eat otherwise. The tour includes tasting of at least 5 dishes or sandwiches as well as bread, salad, a few drinks and unlimited tasting of sweets. We go to 2 restaurants, a café, show you a bakery, a traditional food market, seeing some historic sites on the way.
