The Armenian-populated village of Damala in the Aspindz district of Javakhk is distinguished by the peculiarities of cooking and transmitting various traditional dishes from generation to generation. In this picturesque village, where the residents settled in 1828, they still cook dishes that were handed down to the residents from their ancestors who emigrated from Karin in Western Armenia. The names of the dishes are quite unusual, but they have their own explanations. In the kitchen, consisting of a mixture of different flavors, you can find a beautiful combination of sweet and sour, salty and spicy.
