With plenty of influence from Mediterranean and Eastern cuisine, Armenian cuisine makes use of vegetables, various spices, meat, fruits, and fish.
Meat is used abundantly in Armenian cuisine, and the most famous preparations across the country include a variety of poultry dishes, shashlik (locally known as Khorovats), and more. Some of the most well-known meat dishes are Kyufta (tender meat balls boiled in broth), Dolma (stuffed grape leaves), Borani (fried chicken with aubergines), Tisvzhik (fried beef cooked with onion, tomato paste, salt and pepper), Baskyrat (strips of boiled beef).
