To get a taste of true Bulgarian culture head over to Pod Lipite. Everything about this restaurant oozes authenticity, from its wooden décor to its typical Bulgarian food.
Situated opposite the park Borisova Gradina it offers a fantastic view while you dine. In the summer, customers can also dine outside, making it a fantastic suntrap on a hot summers day. The restaurant is also a stones throw away from the usual tourist areas and so is popular with locals, giving it a relatively undiscovered status.
On the menu are a number of traditional Bulgarian dishes, with an emphasis on salads, grilled meats, soups and pies, as well as good selection of vegetarian options. It is also common for traditional Bulgarian folk musicians to perform while you dine, adding to the rustic ambience of the restaurant.
