This pomegranate-coloured restaurant is Saudi Arabia's first small chain offering Armenian cuisine. Feast on gapama (pumpkin stuffed with rice, meat and nuts, and then baked to perfection) or traditional Armenian soborak (pastry layers stuffed with cheese) while surrounded by pink lava stone imported from Yerevan.
