Help me navigate the wonderful world of (the former Soviet) Georgian cooking

After stumbling across the blog Georgian Recipes
(and specifically this recipe for Acharuli - Ajarian Khachapuri
) I realized I've got a lot
of eating to catch up on. If you know about Georgian food, please give me your tips, tricks, substitutions for hard to find ingredients, ingredients that should never be substituted, links to your favorite Georgian recipes, and basically everything you think I should know about it.

I'm a pretty advanced home cook, and assume I have access to a wide variety of ingredients. I don't have any particular dietary restrictions (I hate coconut & avocado, but it looks like that won't be an issue) and every recipe looks delicious so I don't have a preference about specific types of dishes. Recommendations for Los Angeles-area restaurants are also welcome!
I have a tiny kitchen so a heads up if a recipe requires a ton of dishes or counter space is appreciated. Oh, and I'm not queasy about food prep and ingredients that don't conform to USDA "Don't eat that or you'll die!" standards.
