Balkan Bites is an attempt at providing travellers to Sofia with the first free daily food tour in Europe and maybe the world. The idea is to take a tour of some of the more interesting and trendy family owned restaurants that Sofia has to offer and enjoy some traditional Bulgarian cuisine, while hearing about some of the history and customs that helped make them become staple foods in Bulgaria, by our trained guides.
The tour itself is a walking tour that starts at 2 pm every day (excluding national holidays) at Park Crystal in front of the big head statue of Stefan Stambolov. Although reservations are not needed for SAT and SUN, they do guarantee you a spot on the tour if you arrive before 1:50 pm. If you don’t have a reservation you can still go to the meeting spot directly and try to get in this way as we always leave spaces available on first come first serve basis (doesn’t apply to big groups). As it’s first come first serve it’s recommended to arrive around 15 min before 2 pm to have a chance.
During we week MON – FRI we only run the tours with reservations that are made one day ahead.
The duration is about 2 1/2 hours and the food samples that are presented to the participants are free of charge.
