Food & Dining in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijani food combines Turkish and central Asian elements. Rising pollution levels have given rise to alarm about falling fish stocks, but sturgeon is still widely available at a price. In the chai khanas (tea houses), men linger for hours drinking sweet black tea out of tiny glasses. A special place in the cuisine belongs to salads prepared from fresh vegetables. Salads are served together with main course. The national cuisine includes more than 30 kinds of soups.

It used to be the case that Azerbaijanis rarely ate out for casual occasions, so older restaurants are more designed for lavish all-night extravaganzas, complete with singing and dancing. But Baku is filling up with more Western-style eateries and bars, including tapas bars, Italian and French restaurants, and stylish brasseries. Expect prices to exceed those in many Western countries.
