When in Moscow...eat Georgian...and we're not talking southeast United States. Georgian food is, in a word, delicious!! We had our first introduction during our Moscow “look-see” in August. Our good friends, the Grimes, recently re-introduced us in February - and now we’re hooked!
As you may know, there has been a long standing conflict between Russia and Georgia, to the degree Georgian wine is banned from consumption in Russia. But....food is fair game and Russians love it as much as we do - herbs, spices, nuts, eggplant, pomegranate, shish-ka-bob, fish...
|Eggplant wrapped around a walnut mixture w/pomegranates...|
|Satsivi - chicken in a walnut sauce...|
|Lavish Bread...also very popular - khachapuri- bread stuffed with cheese...heaven!|
|The "pain" of the metro....not nice to instill on visitors!|
