Khachapuri is by far the most authentic Georgian dish. Almost all regions have their own Khachapuri, but the most distinguished one is Adjaruli Khachapuri. Adjara is a seaside region, so locals justify the shape of their Khachapuri with the resemblance to a boat. Inside this boat shaped dough there is melted cheese, some butter and an egg. The entire yolk of the egg floating in the cheese signifies a sunset in the sea. This is how a dish from a real seaside nation should look like. You should mix well the cheese, egg, and butter and then start to soak pieces of baked dough starting from the outer corners. When you have eaten the sides and corners of the boat, you can roll the bottom as a tube and eat it. Even the smallest Adjaruli khachapuri is a challenge, but it will be hard to stop as the taste is so flavorful.
