Batumi Chic and Adjarian Khachapuri
Sporting some very cool 70's Carrera sunnies, Zimon was my driver in Batumi. He's not a fan of driving a taxi all day, but he counts himself lucky that having his old Lada allows him to bring in an income for his family. The thing I loved about his taxi was every panel was a different shade of biege.
And for a welcomed lunch break yesterday Irakli took me to his favourite Khachapuri cafe in Batumi. Khachapuri is a national dish - a kind of cheesy, buttery and eggy pie. In this part of Georgia it's shaped like a boat. Irakli studiously ignored my concerns about cholesterol.
