Traditional Bulgarian food is mostly famous for its variety of cheese, yogurt and quality vegetables.

Bulgarian Cuisine is similar to that of the surrounding Balkan countries as well as Turkey and Greece, yet they put their own little twist on their dishes.

It’s typically fresh, hearty and contains a variety of mild spices. The most common meats are pork, lamb and chicken. Depending on the region, you will find that seafood, fish, and veal can be popular as well.

While in most Eastern European countries the cuisine revolves around meat, and Bulgaria is no exception, there’s still plenty of dishes that are perfect for vegetarians (like me).

I’ve tasted my way through a lot of Bulgarian menus (with my meat-eating local friend) and I’ve had a hard time choosing between all the delicious salads and vegetarian side dishes.

Starving wasn’t exactly a problem in Sofia, let me tell you that much! Basically, there’s something for everyone and I’m pretty sure you’ll find some new favorites you want to try at home as well.

Most likely, one of the following will be on that list of yours!
