Fresh from the garden
Want something on the hidden track? Be sure to discover Armenia’s unique farm-to-table eating culture wherever you go! Armenia is famous for its fresh produce, meats, and dairy products.
With seasonal fresh vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, and hot peppers accompanied by grass-fed free-range lamb, beef, chicken, or pork grilled to perfection over a charcoal fire, and a generous helping of healthy Armenian herbs including Caucasian basil, parsley, spring onions, and tarragon… the Armenian farm-to-table experience is a pleasure not to be missed.
Every table will finish the meal with fresh fruits - apricots, pears, peaches, and pomegranates - some local cheese and some delicious village honey, usually all found in someone’s backyard. Don’t miss this unique culinary experience!
In almost every town and village across Armenia, family-owned and operated guesthouses can be found offering all kinds of amenities and rooms at an affordable rates. These would be the equivalent of a BnB with a more casual setting.
What can be better than idyllic rural life, village hospitality, mouth-wateringly fresh dishes, organic produce, homemade wine and spirits, and unforgettable memories? Armenia’s gastro yards are scattered across the towns and villages of Armenia, where travelers can experience authentic regional cuisine.
The global farm-to-table trend has not spared the major cities, with Yerevan home to a small but rising number of specialty farm-to-table, tasting menu restaurants ranging in price. Gyumri, Armenia’s second-largest city that, is experiencing a revival in recent years and quickly becoming the hip, trendy city that rivals Yerevan’s busy hustle and bustle, is also seeing the first farm-to-table restaurants, focusing on the local sturgeon farming industry.
