Dinner at Charentsi 28
I`ve been sharing some things from my trip to Armenia recently, and I have another post for you all.
This was just a glimpse into the meal I had at Charensti 28 restaurant. My uncle actual owns a share in this restaurant, so I always make a point to go get some food when I go visit Armenia. It`s located at #28 on Charents Street in an old home that has been remodeled as a restaurant.
And it is one of the more unique restaurants in Yerevan, since it features a variety of cuisines.
Most of the restaurants in Armenia features traditional Armenian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes. It has only recently become more Europeanized and started to offer different items, but even those restaurants will focus on one cuisine.
Charents 28 offers some tried and true Armenian favourites as well as some Thai, Greek, Italian and even North American dishes.
Here are just some of the dishes our group shared.
We had some stuffed grape leaves to start, which is originally a mediterranean dish, but ones Armenians have adopted. We call it sarma. The leaves are stuffed with a rice and meat mixture, though there are also vegetarian versions.
We also had some `eech` which is a typical Armenia dish. It`s a bulgur dish with tomato juice and spices. It is a simple dish but a favourite in many households.
We also had some non- Armenian dishes like the Thai inspired chicken salad. It had lots of shredded chicken, cabbage and cucumbers. The flavours reminded me of Pad Thai, but without the noodles.
There were also other dished that I didn`t get a chance to take a picture of like the chicken satay skewers, moussaka and garlic shrimp.
My cousin actually put together a website so you check it out if you`d like - http://www.charensti28.com.
I`m definitely biased, but it is a super popular place in Yerevan, and probably my favourite restaurant ever :P
