Authentic Georgian
and Russian food is
prepared by native
chefs in this unpre-
tentious basement
cafe. Georgian- and
Russian-themed set
menus (Y3000-3200
for lunch or dinner)
are a good introduc-
tion to the kitch-
en's most popular
dishes.

The excellent Geo-
gian menu starts
with the wonderfully
named "herring in a
fur coat," a layered
construction of
beets, potatoes,
finely diced herring
fillets, eggs and
carrots. Other apps
are a spicy
ratatouille-style
ajapsandali and
refreshing, lightly
pickled cabbage,
followed by khacha-
puri, a flaky pie
stuffed with cheese.


The main event is
tabaka - a big help-
ing of garlicky
roast chicken with
crisp skin and suc-
culent, juicy meat.
We also enjoyed the
eggplant with walnut
paste and the khar-
cho (spicy beef)
soup, but perhaps
the thick, syrupy
Georgian coffee is
an acquired taste.

There's also an
extensive a la carte
menu, and lots to
drink (Georgian
wines, Russian vod-
kas). Y1000-range
lunch specials are
served until 5pm.
