Bulgarian Cuisine

Bulgarian Food
If you are invited to someone's home or choose a good traditional restaurant you'll be able to sample what's best about Bulgarian cuisine; plenty of fresh vegetables, eaten raw, roasted or stewed with meat in terracotta. Lots of garlic, onions, oil and spices. Influence of its neighbours, Turkey and Greece are also present in dishes such as 'sarmi' - stuffed wine leaves, 'moussaka' and 'baklava'.

Bulgarians like their salads - a salad and rakia (Bulgarian spirit/schnapps, usually made from grapes) are the obligatory start to the meal. Be warned, this stage of the meal can be a very drawn-out process lasting up to an hour.
These are some of the more popular Bulgarian salads, well worth a try:
Shopska salata
Chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and peppers sprinkled with 'sirene' (Bulgarian white cheese);
Snezhanka
Thick creamy yoghourt with chopped cucumber or gherkins, walnuts and garlic;
Kyopulo
Roasted aubergines, peppers, loads of garlic, parsley.


Soups are also a very important element in the Bulgarian menu: ,
Bob chorba
Traditional bean soup with vinegar and chilli, quite tasty if you can bring yourself to try it
Tarator
Cold yoghourt and cucumber soup

Bulgarians like their meat - mainly pork, veal and chicken - grilled, fried or as a stew. The following are examples of meat dishes:
Kavarma
Gyuvech
Kyufteta
Kebapcheta


Vegetarians may find the choice on the menu a bit limiting which is a shame as there are plenty of delicious vegetarians dishes. Usually you can find the following, but if else fails, try a selection of starters or a combination salad (a plate of various salads):
Kashkaval (or sirene) pane
Chushki burek
Sirene po shopski

Snacks are available all over the country in tiny shops or from stands on the streets. If you are feeling a little peckish - why not try:
Banitsa
Gevrek
Kifla
Piroshka

Finally if you are feeling really adventurous, try some boza - a thick malt drink with a distinct smell. It is said to be an acquired taste!

Bulgarian Alcoholic Drink

Beer in Bulgaria
Bulgaria, while being quite a small country in Eastern Europe, has quite a number of beer brands. The most popular breweries (all producing namesake lagers) are Kamenitza (produced in the city of Plovdiv), Zagork (produced mainly in Stara Zagora) and AstikA (Produced in city of Haskovo). Other remarkable brands are Stolichno (bock beer produced by Zagorka),Shumensko (both lager and red ale, produced in the city of Shumen), Burgasko (produced in the city of Burgas), MM (produced in the city of Varna), Pirinsko (brewed in the city ofBlagoevgrad), and Plevensko(produced in the city of Pleven). Most of the Bulgarian breweries are currently owned by foreign breweries, such as Heineken (Zagorka) and Interbrew(AstikA and Kamenitza).

Bulgarian Wine
Grape growing and wine production have a long history in Bulgaria, dating back to the times of the Thracians. Wine is, together with beer and grape rakia, among the most popular alcoholic beverages in the country.

Bulgarian Rakia
Rakia (also Rakija or Raki) is an alcoholic beverage that is produced by distillation of fermented fruit; it is a popular beverage throughout the Balkans. Its alcohol content is normally 40% ABV, but home-produced rakia can be stronger (typically 50% to 60%).Prepečenica is double-distilled rakia which has an alcohol content that may exceed 60%.
