Chef Aline Kamiakan Pop-Up at Losean Restaurant

On February 11th & 12th, Chef Aline Kamiakan brought her impressive talent to Raffles Seychelles. Guests had the opportunity to discover Armenian cuisine at its finest with the breathtaking views of the Losean Restaurant which overlooks the Indian Ocean.

As a food passionate, Chef Aline Kamakian graduated from Université Saint Joseph with a double major in Masters in Finance and Marketing. Throughout her life, Aline never forgot her love for food but most importantly she never forgot her Armenian roots. She opened in June 2003 “Mayrig” an avant guardiste traditional Armenian restaurant to introduce to all those who appreciate homely, healthy and tasty food, the forgotten flavours of Mother Armenia.

Since then, Aline has ventured into new concepts, catering in 2004, Batchig in 2013, Mayrig Boutique in 2014. She opened new branches of Mayrig in Dubai in 2013 and in Riyadh in 2016, in Maldives in 2017, Yerevan in 2018 and Cairo in 2022; with more projects to see light by the turn of the year… Aline also opened a dark kitchen and delivery brand to keep the front-of-the-house employees in their jobs during COVID-19 quarantines. Lahmajun saw the light in four various locations in Beirut and 10 kitchens in Dubai in 2020. In 2021, Aline opened Batchig’s first franchise in Dubai at the Millennium Place – Mirdif. Aline concentrated most of the years 2010 and 2011 on co-writing her first cookbook “Armenian Cuisine” where her research for traditional recipes took her on a journey to Cilicia, present-day Eastern Turkey, the ancient Armenia that her grandparents fled following the 1915 Armenian Genocide.
