The top two spots on the list were claimed by Swiss "Raclette" and Greek "Saganaki", respectively. However, the strong showing of Georgian khachapuri highlights the country's rich culinary traditions and unique use of cheese in its dishes.
Khachapuri is a traditional Georgian pastry filled with cheese and topped with an egg, and its popularity has been growing worldwide in recent years. The tasteatlas.com ranking is further proof of the dish's global appeal and recognition as a culinary gem.
