Mayrig – Gemmayzeh
Mouthwatering Cuisine in a Charming Atmosphere
Review by Jean
Located in a warm and very carefully decorated old house, with stones and wooden ceilings, four rooms separated by arcades, Caucasian carpets on the floor, Mayrig restaurant is a very authentic and charming place.
The menu offers a large variety of mouthwatering Armenian dishes. The items’ names are in Armenian with a thorough explanation of the ingredients. In case you’re still hesitant, waiters are here to explain. Service in general is professional and courteous.
We ordered hommos soujok, moutabbal, zeitov dolma (stuffed vegetables), Mayrig selection (rough meat kebbe, lentils kebbe and potatoes kebbe), Itch salad (the Armenian version of tabbouleh), gozou patates (Armenian batata 7arra), soujok fekhara, lahme bajeen, beureg soujok and kebab with cherries. Dishes were nicely presented. Everything was excellent but for me the itch and zitov dolma were to die for. I was a little disappointed however by the soujok fekhara that was good but not excellent as the other plates. The new delicious tastes and spices made everything vanish from the table.
The restaurant is usually full, adding life to the place without making it too noisy.
I definitely recommend Mayrig for the divine food, the cozy ambiance and the professional service.Write a Review
