1- Baked Extravaganza: Banista
Its standard variety includes a filling of feta-like white cheese, though varieties filled with onions, cabbage, spinach, mushrooms or pumpkin can also be found. For your sweet tooth, you can also try banitsa with apples and walnuts.
2-King of the Grill
The dish itself is an elongated piece of grilled minced meat, comparable in shape and size, though not in contents, to a hot dog. As with the smaller that you can taste in Serbia, the meat is usually a mix of pork and beef, though it can be solely pork just as well.
3-Head start: shopska salata
Combo of diced tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and peppers, with grated sirene cheese and parsley on top.
4-Goodness with goodness on top: musaka
Bulgarian version involves potatoes, eggs and minced pork meat
5-Childhood favourite: lyutenitsa
thick relish of tomatoes and peppers is the best thing you can spread on your toast
6-Dragon’s breath: shkembe chorba
try this tripe soup, whether because tripe is a somewhat unusual offal to be used in a soup or because of the way shkembe chorba is customarily generously spiced. You are expected to add vinegar, oil, salt and crude pepper to taste though you will discover that to Bulgarians this usually means in generous quantities.
7-Summer refresher: tarator
Tarator and the previous soup on the menu, shkembe chorba, couldn’t be any more different. Unlike shkembe chorba’s firey spiciness, tarator is light, refreshing and cold. A yogurt-base soup of cucumbers, garlic, dill and sometimes walnuts, and even ice cubes, tarator is a must in those scorching summer days.
