Georgian Food in Portland: Kargi Gogo
When you order the house specialty, khachapuri—Georgian cheese bread from the Kargi Gogo cart at the Alder Street carts—it is made that minute. You can watch as it's rolled out, with cheese and fries added to a golden melty goodness. All the dishes are amazing. So are the owners! They lived in Georgia for two years as US Peace Corps volunteers, and spent their free time in home kitchens and restaurants learning the traditional recipes and unique spices that make Georgian food special. The result? Tasty dishes from a unique spot in the world.
