Georgia: Batumi Fish Market

If you’re having a holiday in Batumi – seaside town of Georgia, you can visit a Fish Market, not very far from the town center.

First you have to go to the Fish Market and choose the kind and amount of fish you wish. Afterwards, you give the fish to the cleaner woman, who will clean the fish for you and then you’re heading to the open eatery, right at the wall of the fish market and wait in a quite long line for fish to prepare.

If you are lucky enough, your fish dish will be ready in about 40-60 minutes.  But it was busy Summer time and we were not that lucky and waited for a long time, meanwhile discussing some political issues with the waiter.

Unfortunately, only one type of the dish is cooked there –  fresh fish roasted in corn flour and vegetable oil. The dish is served with sliced lemon, Georgian sour plum sauce and various drinks. You may also find Georgian cucumber – tomato salad, corn bread and Georgian variety of cheese there.

Here are some shots I’ve made from the venue . ..
