To Eat Your Way Through History
Sofia might feel like a youthful, modern city, but remnants of its 7,000 year-old history can be found in nearly every item on a restaurant’s menu. These hearty Balkan dishes feature a dash of Mediterranean influence, thanks to the Greeks and Romans who once laid claim to the land. Two dishes to keep an eye out for are banitsa and tarator; the former is a baked pastry filled with eggs and feta cheese, while the latter is a Balkan version of the Greek tzatziki. Both can be found in every corner of the city.
