so happy to read this post 💚👏 .. all my vegan/vege favs in here . Restaurant Soul Kitchen / Ресторант Соул Китчън is amazing and has a lovely patio seating not to be missed as well as always lovely BG wines! … if you are vegan Слънце Луна – Sun Moon Small 5 Corners as well as the corner Solunska/Tsar Asen have delicious vegan versions of Banitsa with tofu or lentils .. and don’t miss the Sunday brunch at DreamHouse with delicious buffet style for such an affordable price … when I had arrived to Sofia as a vegan almost 3 years ago and I stereotyped Sofia as not having any choices for vegans .. and oh boy …I was so wrong😀
Wonderful article, I loved the food in Sofia and ate well as a vegetarian there. I’m so looking forward to enjoying these places and even more exciting food when I next visit this great city.
Many Thanks Helen 😉
