Located between Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Iran, Armenia is a small country with a great history. But what really interests us at Fine Dining Lovers are the foundations of the Armenian cuisine.

You've never heard of it ? Here are 8 typical dishes, from starters to dessert, which you will often find in Armenian cuisine.

ARMENIAN FOOD: HUMMUS AND TABOULEH STARTERS

2. THE MADZOUN

In Eastern Armenia, the meal usually starts with what is known as mazdoun soup (yoghurt) or flavored chicken with lots of herbs. The most greedy throw meatballs into the mix for a dish called kefta soup madzoun.
