We – Georgians – are real gastronomes. We love tasty food cooked with love and care and usually have higher standards because of our grandmothers’ blessed hands and hearts. And while our traditional cuisine is full of vegan and vegetarian options, we still love to eat meat – everything in moderation including moderation, right?
When it comes to traditional fare, one of the first things that come to Georgian minds is definitely khinkali – meaty dumplings originally from China that have conquered our hearts and stomachs since the 13th century (but here is my friendly advice – never tell that to Georgians).
And while I can spend the whole day explaining all the differences from the ingredients and spices to cooking methods and taste, I think it’s better for you to try it on your own. Keep in mind, you will find different types of khinkali with meat, potatoes, mushrooms, cheese, cottage cheese and even with cherries. You will find it everywhere, in every corner, in every menu.
But I will tell you – the best dumplings in the city, you can try in Pasanauri.
