Something New: Armenian Food

On Sunday, Nate and I wanted to check out a type of food we've never had before: Armenian food. St. John the Baptist Armenian Orthodox Church holds Armenian Fest each year with delicious homemade food. I saw an article about it on last week and suggested we check it out.

I'm glad we went. The food was fantastic, and it was fun to try something new. We bought $20 worth of food and drinks tickets, and figured out what we wanted from there.

We tried:
-Lahmajoon, an Armenian "pizza," made with a thin dough that included a mix of meat, spices, peppers, onions, tomatoes and parsley.
-Cheese boreg and spinach and cheese boreg, which is very similar to Greek spinach pie. The thin layers of dough just about melted in your mouth.
-Sarma and yalangee, stuffed grape leaves, meaty and vegetarian, respectively.
-A lemony hummus with fresh, fluffy pita bread.
-Shakerlama, a melt-in-your-mouth butter cookie.
-We split a Kotayk beer.

(Check out the menu for more information.) (Sorry for the silly picture--but you can still get the idea.)

We had a great time, and I'd definitely go back again!
