2013 Armenian food festival in Oakland Oct. 4-5

St. Vartan's annual festival is here again, one of the few chances to get Armenian food around here. 5:30-midnight today, noon-midnight Saturday, largest selection of food before 8:00. Don't miss the koofta.

  1. Thanks for the pointer. It reminded me to check the Serbian Orthodox church in Moraga, which also has a food festival this time of year, and it's next week. They are promising a BBQ ox!

    1. The eggplant dish is also great.

      Are there similar koofta / kufta / kufteh anywhere around here except at church festivals? These are flat disks, maybe 3" round and 1" thick, meat and bulghur crust with a meat filling, simmered or steamed.

      1. It's that time of year again, this weekend at St. Vartans.
