Slavyanka (??): Buying Your Fish From The Harbour
I never did see the fishing boats here landing their catches but I assume they go out early and supply mainly the local restaurants but this fish van parked up by the harbour has a good looking selection of fish and crustacea and if you are self-catering would definitely be worth dropping by.
What to buy: FISH!!
Delicious dry wine
Bulgarian wines are internationally renowned and one of the country’s prime exports. Among the whites, Chardonnay and the fruity Traminer are distinctive; particularly Khan Krum or Targoviste labels. In addition to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Bulgaria boasts two extremely fine grape strains of their own, Melnik and Mavrud, a dark wine cultivated by the ancient Thracians. Bulgarian beer is also noteworthy, with several regional brands. The national spirit, rakia, is a fiery brandy ritually consumed with a variety of appetizers (meze). Experiment with different brands, several of which produce “otlezhala”, a matured rakia.
What to buy: A part of identity of Bulgarian cuisine is the art of winemaking because good food goes well with good beverages. Wine production has been known in the Bulgarian Lands for millennia and enjoys an enviable reputation in the word market today.
