Food Always Wins


Samovar Store opened in 1996 in Mountain View, CA by immigrant couple from the former USSR.

Wife – Irina Krishina – is a brain behind all freshly cooked food. Growing up in Republic of Georgia she learned a lot about Georgian cuisine and use that knowledge to add new flavors to well known dishes. 

Husband – Alex Alshvang – takes care of retail operations. Alex was born in Baku, capital of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijani cuisine sophisticated enough to convert any person into foody.
