Sometimes, you find the best food in the most unexpected places. BATUMI, which undoubtedly serves the best Georgian food in Israel, is located on the 2nd floor of a not especially promising-looking shopping center in Netanya, opposite the noisy, busy bus station, at the top of stairs that you will have to climb since the escalator has been broken for ages. The décor is very simple with impressively high ceilings. The menu is huge and varied, with a special focus on traditional Georgian dishes such as khinkali, ajaruli, khracho and others: if there is something that is part of the basic Georgian cooking repertoire, you will find it on the menu. The dishes are perfectly executed, with fresh ingredients, and accurate seasonings. You can also expect welcoming, personal service and it is very likely that you might find yourself sitting next to a table of diners speaking Georgian, which is generally a good recommendation.
