Restaurants and Cafes

Review of popular cafes and restaurants of Baku

Azerbaijani food is one of the most diverse and interesting cuisine in the world. In Baku you can find many cafes and restaurants offering to taste national dishes cooked from traditional ingredients: lamb, beef, poultry, Caspian fish, fresh fruit and vegetables with a traditional addition of fragrant spices and seasonings. Almost all the Azerbaijani restaurants in Baku are decorated in traditional style, so, in the best way possible, they make the guests feel that very unique oriental flavor. Some restaurants are located directly in the walls of ancient caravanserais, where ordinary meal turns into a historical insight to the past. There are also teahouses – special cafes, which serve mainly traditional Azerbaijani tea and sweets: pakhlava, dried fruits, and parvarda. Prices in all these institutions vary but normally you can eat to heart, while spending quite reasonable money. But bear in mind that Azerbaijani food quite fat and heavy, and the portions, by rule of oriental hospitality, are enormous.

Due to the vicinity of Turkey and similarity of culinary traditions, Baku also widely presents Turkish cuisine: Turkish restaurants and cafes can be found everywhere, these institutions use their own products imported from Antalya, Mersin and Ayvalik (fish, especially). Next in popularity in Baku are Italian restaurants and trattorias, because the people are very fond of Mediterranean food. In addition, Baku has many stylish grill bars, exotic Asian restaurants (Japanese, Chinese and Thai), and small cafes and restaurants of mixed cuisine. You can spend a good time and have a hearty meal in any of these establishmen
