Qatar’s foodies are in for a treat with the option to try distinctive, authentic Azerbaijani cuisine.

The history of traditional Azerbaijani food goes back to mediaeval times. The composition and multiplicity of dishes is highly diverse and healthy and they are characterised by an abundance of all kinds of meat and vegetable delicacies complemented by delicate herbs and savoury spices.

In Qatar you’ll find a genuine Azerbaijani culinary experience at Nakhchivan, the first original Azeri outlet in the country which, after attracting a loyal following at Souq Waqif, has launched a second branch at the Mall of Qatar.

While the first outlet is known for its historic location, spacious terrace and popular outdoor area, the new eatery will give diners the chance to experience and enjoy delicious Azeri food during a day out with family at the mall.

Popular dishes that are a must-try on your next visit to Nakhchivan include Shah Pilaf, the king of all dishes with its distinctive golden crust; Dolma – stuffed grape leaves topped with fresh yogurt; and Saj, the famous Azeri-style barbecue. Also, don’t miss out on Cag Kebap, perfect seasoned meat cuts, as well as the traditional Azerbaijani Breakfast which comprises an ideal combination of assorted cheeses, sausages, eggs, vegetables, simit, sweet jams and much more for a perfect start to the morning.

End your feast with a traditional Azerbaijani Çay Dezgahı – tea with nibbles – to complete the experience just right! ✤
