Sbidag: A small island of Syria in Yerevan

December 14, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sbidag restaurant is getting prepared for the New Year banquet. The modestly furnished hall is decorated with fir branches and garlands; menus are on the tables, telling the current visitors of the holiday dinner, which consists of traditional Arabic dishes. It also says: “Join the party and enjoy the Syrian atmosphere.”

Sbidag is a small island of Aleppo in Yerevan, opened by Syrian Armenians. It is a club, where the Armenians from Syria come to have traditional dishes of Arabic cuisine, smoke hookah, play backgammon and feel “at home” in a Syrian atmosphere. Only talks on military action in Syria and their nostalgia for their homeland keeps reminding them of their uncertain status and future.
