Armenian cuisine is rich in vegetables, meat, fish and lavash (flatbread), what doesn’t mean, that is not a good country to travel as a vegan. Especially the capital Yerevan.
You start seeing some vegan/vegetarian dishes poping in the menus slowly in Yerevan, and many traditional Armenian dishes are accidentally vegan.
From my experience, Yerevan restaurants, in general, serve quality food and have always some options for vegan even if not identified as such.
Here, is a list of great places from where you can have a delicious vegan meal while travelling in the capital city of Armenia, Yerevan.
