GEO: Grand Grill Restaurant

Don't expect any gravy on their chicken with 'curry sauce'...

Here's a post on the last dinner that my BFF and I had before leaving Georgia the next day. Strategically located in the vicinity of the beautiful Ardagani Lake in Batumi, Grand Grill Restaurant provides an unparalleled view of the lake all day long, as well as the Black Sea during the day.

GEO: Mimino

Are you tempted by cottage cheese with butter and garlic?

Named after a famous Soviet comedy movie, Mimino is decorated with scenes of the movie. Opened at the end of June 2013, it's one out of the four eateries at Piazza Batumi, specialising in Georgian cuisine.

GEO: Retro

What are 'lobiani' and 'kubdari'?

Our first dinner in Batumi, Georgia was at Retro. It's said to be one of the places to sample Georgian bread dishes. Given that my BFF and I'd had enough cholesterol from Bar-Restaurant Palaty in Kutaisi, we decided to try something else than acharuli khachapuri, the national dish of Georgia.

GEO: Sky Tower Hotel [Breakfast]

Where cooked food items are dominated by eggs~

My BFF and I stayed at Sky Tower Hotel (5*) in the lovely city of Batumi, Georgia. Even though we spent two nights there, we only had one chance to sample the buffet breakfast as we had to leave the hotel early in the morning on our last day in the former Soviet Union country.

GEO: Hotel Old Town [Breakfast]

A sweet carrot dish for breakfast, anyone?

For our quick visit to Kutaisi, Georgia that lasted less than 24 hours, my BFF and I stayed at Hotel Old Town (3*). We found the breakfast, while not served buffet style, was generously prepared as can be seen in the picture below.

GEO: Bar-Restaurant Palaty

How does tarragon cream sauce on beef sound to you?

Similar to the situation in Gori, my BFF and I had one and only one opportunity for a proper meal in Kutaisi, Georgia. We had only one place in mind, which had been decided during our trip planning stage. That's Bar-Restaurant Palaty, which is possibly the best restaurant in the city according to many.

GEO: Barbarestan

Mouth-watering duck fillet consumed by royalty in the past!

A restaurant in Tbilisi that I'd highly recommend to everyone is Barbarestan. That's where my BFF and I spent our last evening in the capital city of Georgia. Boasting remarkable dishes from a recipe book written by Barbare Jorjadze, a Georgian princess in the 19th century, the stunning restaurant is a hit among foreign visitors and locals alike.

GEO: Orbi's Restaurant

Delicious barbecued pork in private room!

My BFF and I only had one chance to have a proper meal in Gori, Georgia, the town where Joseph Stalin was born. As we were going to catch the one and only train back to Tbilisi, we decided to eat somewhere nearer to the train station. Orbi's Restaurant was our choice for the afternoon.
