A part of the identity of Bulgarian cuisine is the art of wine-making because Good Food goes down weel with choice beverages.
Aperitifs occupy a special place among Bulgarian drinks. The typical national drink (rakia) is a fiery brandy ritually consumed with a variety of appetizers (meze). It's worth to try the "hot" plumb brandy from Troyan and the mellow aged grape brandy from Songurlare.
And finally, a cup of steaming coffee served with sweet jam, pancakes with honey and walnuts or baklava. Desserts tend to be overly sweet pastries and cream-filled cakes, but crepe-like pancakes (palachinki) filled with figs (smokini) are a good alternative.
The temptations are many - the choice is yours! Good appetite!
