Love restaurant, lovely food!
Posted on 04 / 13 / 2015
My partner and I recently stayed in Sofia for a few days - and we didn't realise before booking that it was Easter (as Orthadox countries celebrate a week later than other countries) - and most places are closed over the whole Easter weekend. I found a few places on Happy Cow and then looked them up on Facebook and messaged them to ask if they were open (after searching for one for a very long time by foot and finding it was close - we didn't want to risk trying our luck again).
Soul Kitchen replied to my message quite quickly and told me they were open on Easter Saturday so we decided to go there for lunch. It was quite a walk as it was not in the center and when my boyfriend said we were close and we were walking down what looked like a very residential area I thought we must be lost and then we saw the sign! I was so happy!
When we walked inside I loved the decor of the place instantly! Very nice restaurant :) The girl at the service desk wasn't overly friendly when we arrived - not sure if this is the Bulgarian way? As we encountered a few service staff like this (but then we had some amazing friendly service in some places too?) - Anyway she warmed up over the duration we were there and seemed more friendly towards the end. The other server was quite friendly though.
We ordered Entree's of apple beetroot & rocket salad & baked polenta with tomato sauce - both were really good and the sauce on the baked polenta was SUPER delicious!!! For main my boyfriend ordered the truffle pasta and I ordered the Thai curry - both were not bad, but I think lacked a little flavour. Not as impressive as the entree, but not too bad either.
Dessert we had the chocolate-vanilla cake and it was really good! We also had cuppacino's - which was a real treat as I haven't had a coffee since we've travelling for the last couple of months as most places don't serve dairy-free milk! It was quite good :)
Overall a good experience and I would definitely go back here if I came back to Sofia :) Very nice ambience - the restaurant decor was one of my favourite things!!
