How do you Zankou?

Gary Rolin | Apr 8, 2005 04:18 PM

I recently started a job in Pasadena that has allowed me to introduce my co-workers of the wonder of Zankou chicken.

We all get our respective plates. I like the 1/2 or 1/4 chicken plate and others get the Tarna plate. Then we look at our plates with the tomatoes, the pickled turnnip, hummus, pita and that cup of sacred garlic stuff and wonder what to next. Do we eat it seperately or all together? And is the sauce for dipping or spreading or what?

I suppose whatever gets you through the night is the appropriate answer, but I'd like to hear from you and wonder what the general consesus was. Does anyone know what the traditional Armenia practice is?

Personally, I throw everything on a pita and essentialy make a sort of Zankou soft taco and eat it all at once.
