Japanese, Indian or Israeli? Kitchen of different countries and continents in the restaurants of Sofia

Want to try Thai street food or a dish cooked for holidays in India? To go on an exotic culinary journey, you don’t need to leave Bulgaria. Just plan a trip to one of the many restaurants of national authentic cuisine in Sofia.

The capital of Bulgaria is steadily growing and developing. One and a half million inhabitants, many of whom are foreigners, who want to get bright and unusual taste sensations, don’t only visit the usual restaurants of Bulgarian and Central European cuisine. The kitchen of other countries and even continents is also very popular here – because it's so simple to plunge into the atmosphere of a distant exotic country, to enjoy the aromas of spices, to be surprised by unusual dishes, to discover new tastes and combinations of food for just within a couple of hours.
