Georgian cheese bread among world’s top 40 best street foods
Popular American publication, Thisisinsider reveals the best street food in 40 countries around the world. Among them is Khachapuri, a traditional Georgian dish of cheese-filled bread often coined as Georgian cheese pizza.

As a reminder, this year, Georgian khachapuri was named the best cheese pizza by Forbes.

Khachapuri is one of the most popular dishes in Georgia and throughout the world as well. This tender cheese filled bread is the favorite dish among foreign tourists visiting Georgia.

The most popular
with foreigners is Adjarian style (Adjaruli) Khachapuri. It has boat shape with cheese and egg in the middle and a crust which is ripped off and used to dip in the melted cheese.

Georgian cheese bread has gone beyond the borders and is served at various restaurants across the world.

Here is what Thisisinsider reports:

Georgia

Khachapuri , the ubiquitous signature Georgian cheese-stuffed bread oozes gooey goodness. A common site on the Georgian table — at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Because the cheese inside is mildly brined, it's salty goodness is like a diet-demolishing siren call.

Chile

When we arrived in Chile, we were on a mission to eat a proper (hot dog). Although we usually practice hot dog avoidance, these beauties were hard to resist. The one pictured here merges avocado, tomato and mayonnaise in the flag-like completo italiano.

Greece (Crete)

On the Greek island of Crete, it sometimes seemed as though all we did was eat. In the island's main city of Heraklion, just prior to our departure, we were recommended to try bugatsa, a pastry filled with cream and/or cheese, and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The most famous bugatsa is served at Kipkop, a bakery founded in 1922 by Armenian immigrants whose descendants dish the same original recipe to this day.

Mexico (Oaxaca)

When we decided where to spend two months in Mexico, we choose Oaxaca primarily because of its cuisine and street food scene. One of our favorite street food or market snacks was the tlayuda , a large semi-dried tortilla, sometimes glazed with a thin layer of unrefined pork lard called asiento , and topped with refried beans ( frijol ), tomatoes, avocadoes, and some variation of meat (chorizo, tasajo or cencilla, or shredded chicken tinga). It can either be served open, or when it's cooked on a charcoal grill, folded in half. One is often enough to feed two people.

Peru
