This place is filled with in-the-know locals and expatriated Georgians who are the key to the happy, hearty atmosphere: they don’t even need the menu to order. Shashlik (shish kebabs) come only in pork, or maybe you want it in a lavash wrap. However, when you spend all your time grilling just one kind of meat, it ought to be good. And it is. The pork has been licked by the firey flames and is coated in a crispy fried seasoning. The lobio (red bean dish) is fresh, spicy and riddled with creamy walnuts and pomegranate seeds and word is these are the best khinkali (giant dumplings) in Moscow. The restaurant is located near the Gogol Center.
