You’ve Gotta Eat This: Khachapuri

What is it? Cheese + bread + an egg = the greatest snack you’ve ever heard of.

Where can you get it? Khachapuri is a traditional dish from Georgia, where the Georgian people rank it higher than pizza (big call, but wait ’til you taste this thing).

What’s in it? There’s many different ways to make a khachapuri, depending on where in Georgia you go. The basic recipe (and shape) is a circluar piece of bread that’s filled with cheese (most commonly the sour suluguni) and egg. Some add potato, some make it more like a calzone, and there’s even a variety that looks more like a sauceless lasagna with multiple layers of bread and cheese. De-lish.

Is it good for you? It’s carb city, so probably not.

How much does it cost? Free if you get a local to make it for you!
