Little Georgia

14 Barnsbury Road
N1 0HB

P and I went to the Estorick Collection, an museum that specialises in modern Italian art, and I was surprised by how much I liked some of the etchings of Giorgio Morandi. But looking at art always makes me hungry, so luckily we had planned to go to Little Georgia for dinner afterwards. A met us there so we were able to share more food - and we proceeded to get a small meze platter (consisting of those amazingly colorful piles of salad above) which comes with the most amazing cheese-stuffed bread (khachapuri?), and some blini stuffed with pork and cheese to start. Other people have raved about the unusual flavors of Georgian food and the freshness of all the herbs used in the cooking, and I will just say that I concur. I could have just the meze and blini for dinner, I think, and skip all the mains. Of course, when P and A and I eat together, we never skip mains, so there was also a beef stew, a garlic chicken stew and some lamb kebabs, all of which were nice, but just not as nice as the starters. P's already been back, and I'm sure I will be there again soon, stuffing my face full of the loveliest salads ever.
