Firstly, you hold the ‘crown’ (typically not eaten) of the Khinkali with your right hand, and lift the bottom part with your left hand, so it’s upside down.  Slowly and carefully, bite a small hole in the Khinkali and drink the delicious juice inside. Then bite in and enjoy the rest!

Ordering Khinkali at a restaurant is done by asking how many you would like to eat? 5 to 7 is a large meal. Using utensils, like a fork, is not right or polite way. So, you’d better eat khinkali like locals. Make sure you roll up your sleeves and dig in to a delicious plate of Khinkali while in Georgia. Better order an ice cold Natakhtari Beer, too (one of many great Georgian beers to try). This is the best addition to khinkali.
