The best way to start your day in Sofia is with a piece of banitsa. This is the most traditional street food and you can find it at any of the many snack shops on the streets. They have all kept the recipe for Sofia’s Banitsa for decades – like the ones on Graf Ignatiev, Gladstone or the one on Shishman street. Everyone here calls it Sofiiska banitsa, but if you ask any of our neighbors on the Balkans, an argument would erupt of who should claim its name. So, if to you the banitsa is just a gastronomic experience, to us it is an oily and tasty symbol of continuity and tolerance that characterizes the history of the Balkans over the centuries. Delicious, isn’t it?
