      TSAKHKUNK RESTAURANT IN THE LIST OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD ACCORDING TO FORBES MAGAZINE

      02.02.22

      The Armenian restaurant “Tsakhkunk” has won a place in the top ten restaurants of the world in 2021 according to the famous Forbes magazine. The rating was compiled by the famous travel author Ann Ebel. Last year, Ann visited Armenia and was able to personally appreciate the rich palette of tastes of local products and dishes. She described Armenia as an undervalued, but very interesting and promising destination for gastro and ethno-tourism. In the restaurant, the guest was most impressed by the original breakfast, which included assorted local varieties of ordinary and smoked cheese, lavash, egg dishes with fragrant mountain herbs, “aveluk” (horse sorrel), thick soup “ash-e reshteh”. By the way, not only the taste of the dishes was evaluated, but also their design and presentation, which also impressed the foreign guest.

      Mads Refslund – the famous chef of the restaurant

      The Tsakhkunk restaurant first gained worldwide fame back in October 2021, when a unique gastronomic show of the world-famous chef Mads Refslund took place here. The cooking guru gave ten dinners, each of which included 15 original dishes from the chef. Previously, Refslund got acquainted with local natural products and mountain herbs, the taste and aroma of which greatly impressed him and inspired him to create dishes with a special local flavor. The Michelin chef especially noted the “sunny” Armenian fruits, tolma in grape leaves, Sevan crayfish and fresh lavash. The Danish chef was also impressed by the Armenian “tonir” – an oven in the form of a deep pit lined with stone, in which lavash is prepared, as well as meat, poultry and fish are baked. Refslund remarked that he would very much like to have a similar oven in his New York restaurant.
