Kargi Gogo was born in the homes, restaurants and vineyards of the Republic of Georgia, where we — Sean Fredericks and McKinze Cook — served as US Peace Corps volunteers from 2010 to 2012. We spent countless hours in kitchens and around dinner tables, falling in love with the ingredients, techniques and recipes that make up Georgia’s unique culinary traditions.

Returning home, we opened the country’s first and only Georgian food cart in 2013 in downtown Portland, Oregon. Kargi Gogo soon earned a loyal following and drew the attention of USA Today, The Associated Press, Serious Eats, Plate Magazine, The Cooking Channel and Georgian national television.

In summer of 2018, Kargi Gogo opened as an intimate, casual counter-service restaurant in Portland’s Alberta Arts District, and was named one of the Top 13 New Restaurants in America by the food & culture website Thrillist. Due to COVID-19, we are currently closed for dine-in service. Our online store and operations are constantly evolving as we adapt to this ever-changing situation.
