Everybody loves Armenian food -- especially in Uruguay!

Our great friend and loyal follower, David Blasco, has been gracious enough to promote TheArmenianKitchen.com on his motorcycle enthusiasts' Web site, RoyalEnfields.com.

One such recent mention brought this comment from Jorge, one of his readers:

"An interesting tidbit is that an Armenian dish has become quite ubiquitous in Uruguayan cooking. They call it Lehmeyun and it is a meat pizza. It is almost as widespread in Uruguay as regular pizza."

We've always known lahmajun (as we call it) is irresistable -- but who knew it had become so engrained in the food culture of Uruguay?

Thanks David -- and thanks Jorge!
