    MMM these dishes look good. The Xajapuri sounds like a Mexican quesadilla (tortilla with cheese) and the Xinkali look like Chinese dumplings. So these dishes may have different names but appear pretty similar to other cultures foods.

    Niice the Xajapuri & Xinkali looks Delicious, I like the first one more the the second one. and the second one looks like what abdul brought to class the biscuit with dates in it. Georgian food close to arabic, we have the same dishes but with different names.

    Hmm… look yummy!! I am hungry!!! Can I have some Xinkali!!!?
    Do you know how to cook it?
    Actually, Xinkali looks very similar to dumplings which is a traditional dum sum in Taiwan.

    Both dishes look delicious. I want to know if the Xajapuri is considered a sweet dish?. It looks like there is a syrup on top. The Xinkali looks similar to a traditional Arab food, which includes dough filled with either beef, chicken or cheese. It is cooked differently back home, you have different options of cooking it, you can have it fried or baked. I really enjoyed the pictures as I never knew we have similar food.

      Yes Abdullah our foods are very similar, although they still have some differences. The xajapuri is not sweet, its butter that is spread on top of it not syrup.

    Dear Lily,
    I would like to thank you for your invitation to try the Georgian food. After we finish the MGMT301 class I will celebrate in this restaurant with my children. I love the try the international food, but until now I did not get the honor to try the Georgian food. Thanks again for introducing the traditional Georgian food.

    Now I really would love to try it, In future I can ask you for a bakery or a restaurant that I can go to and try traditional Georgian dishes. Also, I would like to learn how to do the dishes at home, if you have a good website that can show me the recipe step by step that would be great.

    I never really knew about any Georgian food, but by just looking at the pictures I feel that theres a need to. Xinkali looks like Tai dumpling, and it also looks like a traditional Afghani food many Saudis make at home called “Manto”. “Manto” looks exactly the same as Xinkali because its also consists of dough filled with meat.

    This looks like some good eats. Did Alton Brown makes those? If so what was his secret ingredient? Everyone that keeps posing pictures of food on their blogs makes me wish we could have a potluck. Don’t be a stranger Georgian neighbor, there are a lot of Mediterranean food we know little about.

      Absolutely the best restaurant that I would recommend would be Old Village, it is located in Glendale and the streets are Central/Chevy Chase. They have Russian, Armenian, and Georgian food, and it is amazing!
