Varna Food Diary 01

This was actually the first meal I’d had in Bulgaria and it was consumed at Sofia airport. It was a kind of stew with egg… the egg was actually baked!

A typical breakfast… I’ve had two here now and it’s unlikely I’ll photograph each and every one… much like lunch and dinner, each meal seems to resemble the next.

A kind of shredded beet salad served up with lunch, typically pork and gravey… today we had tomato sauce with peppers… What, no photos? Sorry, I ate each server faster than I could get to the camera. Why? Well, whilst others complained, I dug in as so much of this food I hadn’t eaten since I was last in Eastern Europe and prior to that, at the family dinner table. Yum! Better start running on that beach!!!

Rice ball with yoghurt, cucumber and onion. Goes down well with a thick slice of black bread and unsalted butter.

  1. Perhaps a new book is in order – “AG’s Adventures Through Cullinary-Space” 🙂

    At least this isn’t like Pond Soup – you can pretty much see what you’re getting with this stuff 🙂

  2. This multicultural experience should be added to the already bulging palette of exotic delights available for the non-peripatetic aussie palate. Photographing all those dishes, did you have to explain to the anxious owners that you weren’t from the Ministry of Health?

  3. Actually, a baked egg can be had at the Charles Street, Fitzroy cafe. My partner had one there only a week ago–baked egg on a bed of baby spinach leaves and asparagus with I-know-not-what sauce.

  4. wait till we move to the viennese food diary. only a selection of what was consumed. most meals were quite similar, or semmilar if we were to make a pun with semmile, the popular roll that needs to be consumed within 2 hours of baking.
