Everyone plans for the week starting on Monday, below are some tips:
The annual Armenian Food Fair is Saturday May 22nd. This is the event’s 3rd year and will be, again, hosted at Holy Cross Cathedral in Montebello. Before you ask “where the hell is Montebello”, click for google map. Montehello has one of the largest contingents of Armenian population outside of Little Armenian, and is another great reason why the Western (626) is an awesome area to live. One can find local Armenian businesses, churchs, etc. at: http://www.armeniancenter.com/.
At this particular event, typical promise of “There’s something for everyone” is made, but really, what will interest everyone’s
* Beef Kebab Plate
* Lamb Kebab Plate
* Chicken Kebab Plate
* Beef Luleh Plate
* Piroshki – Meat or Potato
* Cheese Boreg
* Nazook (gata)
* Shakar Lokhoom
* Nut Roll “Finger Cookies”
Having just tasted a tremendous “Israeli” kebab at Itzik Hagadol, it’d be interesting to see how the finer Armenian versions in LA stacks up. Have $2 ready for entrance fee & be prepared to have some Armenian mud coffee.
