Soviet Bloc: The New Kachka and Kachinka Expand Portland’s Russian Empire



@tiltedacres Morales is Chef Bonnie’s married name! If anything, she is only guilty of “Russification,” which historically is a whole other beast.


The closer example would be Kargi Gogo, which sells Georgian food made NOT BY NATIVE GEORGIANS, but two people who spent a lot of time there. I was expecting a return to the "death threats are perfectly reasonable" rhetoric from this paper that exemplified the Kooks story, but none so far.
Almost as though cuisine (and culture in general) is a shared thing, huh? I'm noticing this Russian resto has khachapuri on its menu. THAT'S A GEORGIAN DISH. DEATH THREAT!
