After having spent a week in Georgia and Armenia, we stumbled upon Dolmama's and it was fantastic. While we ate very well pretty much everywhere -- from hotel restaurants to roadside shacks -- this was probably the best meal of the trip. Among other things, our waitress spoke perfect English (as well as 4 other languages) and made great recommendations...

Dolmama is without a question one of the best restaurants not only in Armenia but in the world.

Dolmama is a spot to go when you're already starting to feel a bit tired of the typical Armenian fare that mostly consists of all sorts of grilled food. Undeniably, this is the best Yerevan restaurant offering modern Armenian cuisine. Its owner is an art collector, an American Armenian, who has returned to Yerevan. Probably you will meet him there, chatting with guests.

Khashlama, another favorite meal among Armenians, verbally meaning stewed meat. It is meat cooked in water. In “Dolmama” we replaced water with concoction of sweet, vermouthy wine and cream fresh. We made it more spicy and voilà, it is a lamb stewed in Dolmama style. Forgive me for brief description of the way we cook these dishes but it’s better to taste it once then to read about it many times.Read more »
Sweet food given to us by an old recipe of Easter Pilaff includes rice with sweet raisins, dried fruit and nuts. The recipe prompted us that we could mix fresh peaches with green beans or make Khorovats (BBQ) with mulberry sauce. Making our menu has turned into a creative process. First it was going on in my head then the ideas were carried out through trials until achieving the goal.Read more »
