Georgia’s other national dish, khinkali, or soup dumplings, should not be ignored while in Tbilisi, and one of the best central places is a stone’s throw from the Abanotubani bathhouses. After an invigorating and extremely hot bath and rejuvenating massage and scrub, you’ll need to refresh yourself with famous Borjomi mineral water (it’s a quite salty-tasting water). Borjomi is essential after a hot bath or an evening of wine drinking.
To be honest, I come here more often than I take baths, because the khinkali are made perfectly pillowy and they have my favorite kind of khatchapuri, made with tarragon. It’s a great spot for people who don’t have much time in the city and who want to eat fantastic dumplings but do not want to travel far from Old Town.
I am not a big fan of their wine list as they have mostly conventionally wines available, and I prefer natural wines
The best dumplings for me are the wild mushroom ones. They are perfectly seasoned and spicy and adequately soupy.
