Cultural Novelty

Georgian cuisine is a feast of taste, joy and bright experiences, highly estimated by millions of people. Complemented by famous Georgian beverages, unique music, authentic ambience and interesting history, Georgian cuisine can become a favorite both for people looking for new tastes and for the most demanding palates.


A Georgian food restaurant is a wonderful business idea, which we now are willingly presenting to our readers.

Despite its unique properties and competitiveness with the best European and Asian cuisine traditions, Georgian cuisine is not very well known. Your own Georgian food restaurant can easily outstand among many others thanks to its novelty, fantastic delicious tastes, while the cooking process is relatively simple and its ingredients affordable.

Georgian cuisine appeared on the crossroads of Europe and Asia, on the narrow mountainous piece of land between two seas. It accumulated the best of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Eastern cuisines, all the while having the added freshness of mountainous air, passionate temperament of the Georgian people, and spicy smells of warm Southern nights.

The Main Courses

Shaslik is the very favourite meat dish of Georgian cuisine cooked at the open heat of twinkling ash coals, which provide the meat with a tasty crust outside, remaining very juicy inside. Shaslik is grilled on sharp skewers (shampur). Serving the ready flavoured shaslik on the skewers can become a bright show, which will remain in the memories of the guests at your restaurant. Shaslik wrapped along with fresh vegetables into a thin bread pancake (lavash) can become the basis of your take-away menu.

Chicken Tabaka got its name of the traditional frying-pan "tapa", where the dishes get fried very quickly due to its heavy lid or a special press. Both children and adults adore the tender golden crust and eastern spices' flavour. A big choice of traditional sauces, like hazelnut "sazivi", pomegranate-walnut "bazhe", "tkemaly" made of prunes, make the dishes even more sophisticated.

Khinkali are eaten hot and steamy, served on a plate straight from the pan. Enjoy its juicy flavoured cut meat with herbs inside the thin tender dough gathered around the meat filling in the shape of a "drop", or a "fig". The craftsmanship of a Georgian cook is determined by the quantity of folds on each khinkali he makes: according to the tradition, there must be not less than 19; though the real master-hands are capable of making 27, and, they say, even 32 tender folds. Khinkali is a beautiful dish which can become the main decoration of a festive table; as for its taste, it is more delicious than similar dishes of other peoples' cuisines – pelemeni, ravioli and manti.

By all means do include into the menu of your restaurant such dishes as meat "chanakhi" stewed in clay pots, "chakapuli" of young lamb with herbs, and "chakhokhbili" – fried and then stewed poultry with vegetables, "odzhakhuri" on a clay frying-pan, "ketzi", and many others.

The Starters

The starters in Georgian cuisine are not less important than the main courses. Hot and cold, spicy and savoury, they are really diverse, and can't possibly leave anyone indifferent.

Hot pastry with cheese filling – "khatchapuri" – will proudly take place on a festive table; besides, they can easily be transported, so they are sure to enrich your restaurant's fast service menu.

Cold vegetables starters are usually cooked with very cheap ingredients, such as beans, vegetable leafs, beetroot, and, of course, eggplants, - favourite component of many starters. Spending little on the ingredients, you can impress your restaurants' guests with the great variety of shades of tastes.


Georgian bread is worth mentioning separately. It is baked within a few minutes in ovens half buried in the ground. The process of baking is a real show, successfully being demonstrated in many Georgian bakeries. Make your restaurant unique not only for delicious food, but for the memorable process of its cooking and serving!


The Georgian drinks are for all the visitors without exceptions. Georgian wines, cognacs, and other spirits, were highly praised by many leaders of states. Georgian mineral waters both refresh and supplement many dishes; their healing properties are testified by international experts. The legendary "Lagidze Waters" have already become a part of Georgian culture, as well as that of many other countries.

We do hope that you share our admiration for Georgian cuisine, and turn this business idea into a source of delight and good income.
