Khachapouri is pure Russian comfort food, says ipsedixit. It’s something like a split-open calzone, topped with feta, mozzarella, butter, your choice of extra toppings, and then two eggs, sunny side up. Zaatar Factory makes great ones. “These things are damn delicious,” says cdub. They have nice house-made sausage, too.

Another local source for khachapouri is historical Chowhound favorite Big Mama’s and Papa’s. ipsedixit liked the bacon and ham khachapouri. “Sounds gross, I know, but it was really good. Sort of reminded me of the egg and guanciale pizza at Mozza.” Silver Lake Guy suggests ham and mushroom, or bacon and onions as toppings. “The SO thinks I’m nuts but double yum,” says Silver Lake Guy. “And it travels well.”
