Arsi's Pateseria

ARMENIA 🇦🇲

The börek, a pastry made with thin phyllo dough and filled with various ingredients, has made its way from home in what is modern-day Turkey in all directions towards Europe, the Middle East and the Caucasus. In different places, it has taken a life (and shape) of its own.

Pastries here have been on our radar since a short report 8 years ago on EIT, but in the end we veered towards the triangles instead of the circles. On the menu they were written "bureaka" but more commonly known in Armenian as "byorek," this tiny little bakery is making them right regardless of spelling.


Each pastry is $1.25, making it hard not to stop in for a heaping bag to go. Shown below is a cross-section of the delicious mushroom version, but the unseen innards of the spinach and feta were actually the favorite.


There are a variety of goods for purchase here, including the round cheese pie reported on the EIT article linked above. We will add different shots if future visits come up with anything good.
