Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Although dining in an empty nightclub isn’t ideal, you gotta do what you gotta do if you want Bulgarian food: The cuisine isn’t exactly taking over the city. A glass of rakia (Bulgarian grape brandy) and a salad is the traditional start to an authentic meal. Luckily, there’s no pressure to conform here, so feel free to start your meal with tarator instead, a cold yogurt soup with bits of cucumber and creamy, sour yogurt curds at the bottom of a deep bowl. If you can dance on a full stomach (Eastern European club kids show up later on), move on to sirene po shopski, a wobbly egg that spills luscious yolk onto sweet roasted red peppers and baked feta.
