    O!Shipka: Typical Bulgarian food and mood!

    I discovered the O!Shipka restaurant thanks to Kristian, a friend I met via CouchSurfing. He took me there to show me a typical Bulgarian restaurant and let me taste some traditional food.
    I liked it so much that I went back there at least one more time, with a colleague (who was a narrow-minded Italian, so he didn't appreciate anything).
    The downside of this place is that the non-smoking area is upstairs, so you have to cross the smoking area to reach it. Non-smokers don't enjoy many rights in Bulgaria, or at least they didn't in autumn 2010.

    Favorite Dish: The first time, I had the salad you see in the photo (potatoes, cheeses, eggs, sour creme) and liked it. Kristian let me taste the ayryan, i.e. a drink made with water, yoghurt and salt (see my Local custom tip for more info). At first, it had a weird taste, but I eventually liked it and later, I got used to buy it at the supermarket.

    great Bulgarian dish!

    O!Shipka: NonStop = 24 Hours

    by frozensausage Written Sep 6, 2007

    This place is just special.

    I know there are around 6 O!Shipka's in Sofia, but the one on Shipka Street itself is surely the coolest place in Sofia.

    O!Shipka is housed in a beautiful building which is accessed from the site via a velvet curtain - inside there are friendly staff, a great menu, and just a great vibe.

    For a few levs more, go down to the club where there are DJ's, Bands etc.

    Favorite Dish: Tsarigradski Style Meatballs

    Chilli Peppers

    O!Shipka - Boudapest: Very Tasty and Cheap Food!

    by kalenderov Written Jul 23, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are three restaurants named O!Shipka in Sofia. But at most I like this on Boudapest Str.

    Favorite Dish: I like "Vegetarian Sache" because it's fresh and cool. And cheap. But you have to be at least three if you want to eat it all.
