Respond to Review of Dream House
Review: After a week of subsisting on salads in Bulgaria, we finally got to Sofia and made our way to Dream House last night (August 6, 2007). The Sunday buffet was wrapping up, so we ordered off the menu instead. The food was really good. To start, we shared the hummus with sauteed zucchini which was decent (you'll need to order bread separately), and one of the salads. I can't remember the name of it, but the tomatoes were wonderful, and it also included shaved beetroot, wheat sprouts, and garlic. The best salad I've had so far in Bulgaria. For our mains, my husband had the Frijoles, which (as one should expect in Eastern Europe) was devoid of spice except for the whole jalapeno placed on top. He still enjoyed it, but my dish, the tofu with shiitake mushrooms stole the show. It was actually a blend of mushrooms, perfectly cooked with the tofu in a light soy-based sauce. The portions were huge, especially for the price, and dishes are exactly as described, so if you want rice or something, you need to order that extra. For dessert, we shared the breaded banana with walnuts and honey, which was nice, but heavy. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed, and the service was very good and friendly. However, the menu was not divided into sections like other reviews have stated. I had to ask the waiter if the dishes I wanted were vegan or not, but I think the dishes with dairy were all pretty obvious.
