Armenian food in DelhiIt is very rare to find a restaurant that expresses a true labour of love. Lavaash by Saby is a peek into Chef Sabyasachi Gorai’s childhood experiences. Growing up in the coal belt of Asansol, Chef Sabyasachi’s early childhood was spent under the influence of the Armenian culture. ‘Lavaash’ literally meaning bread gives life to these memories. The admixture of Armenian cooking in the Bengali cuisine will leave even a true blue bong astonished. There is a splattering of the famous Gondhoraj Lemon which still grows in my ancestral home along with the Bengali staple Kasundi (mustard sauce along with green mangoes and other spices). There are also some modern spinoffs as Chef Saby uses cheeses made from the region. The salted Bandel reminds you of the steamy, overcrowded Bandel Local on the main line while the Calimpong reminds you of the coolness of the hills.
It’s also the scenic beauty of the place that draws you towards it. Located in the scenic Mehrauli complex with a chic bohemian setup which takes you away from the busy life of the city. Lavaash has a calm serenity that soothes your frayed nerves. The food plays no small part in it. Chef Saby’s acolyte, Chef Megha Kohli has researched in depth of the Bengali cuisine. Her face lights up every time someone recognizes the Bengali ingredients, sauces or the dishes.
