If you were born before the 90s, you’ll love this place. Otherwise, you’ll still like it, but you might need some further explanation of the interior with portraits of former dictators and toys from a Soviet-influenced childhood. The food is simple, traditional and uncompromisingly delicious. On top of that, there’s a wide selection of over 500 different local and Balkan brandies to choose from.
#soSofia tip: Be sure to try the meatballs, Snezhanka salad and the marinated ribs.
