If I want to eat well and cheap, I go to a café which is already well known by almost all Tbilisians. Sakhachapure №1 is a good place where you can eat Georgian. Even the name promises that you can eat the best Khachapuri here.
What is actually Khachapuri? It is the staple food of Georgians. However, there are many different variants of khachapuri, because in each region there are various types and the people make it different. Therefore in the menu you will find Khachapuri Adjarian, Megrelian, Imeretian and so on. Sakhachapure even has phklovani, which is khachapuri with beetroot and spinach and Achma on its menu, usually difficult to find in other restaurants in Tbilisi. Besides khachapuri, the eatery offers salads, a bean pie called lobiani, soups, pizza, and desserts.
My favorite types of Khachapuri are Megrelian and Adjarian. Megrelian is with double cheese, so it is filled with cheese (like Imeruli) and then topped with more melted cheese; Adjaruli has a boat-like shape and is served with partially cooked egg in the middle of the cheese along with a chunk of butter on the top.
You must try Khachapuri with well-known “Lagidze Lemonade”. This lemonade’s unique recipe was created by Mitophane Lagidze and is based only on natural ingredients. It was the “calling card” of Tbilisi and in 2013 it got the status of intangible cultural heritage of the country. I drink mostly chocolate mixed with cream.
