Having already enjoyed a couple of quiet beers at one off the cabins just up the road from the railway station I wasn't in any mood to venture much further (and the drizzly rain didn't help). Heading back towards the station I noticed this little pizza place on the corner and gave it a whirl.
The pizza menu is pretty much just that, with a few salads thrown in, and so being in Roma I opted for the flamboyantly-sounding "Pizza Bella Italiya". This turned out to be tasty enough though I'm not quite sure what the "Bella Italiya" bit was all about - perhaps it was the sprinkly of dried basil and the 5 olives?
Service was friendy, the restaurant itself is quite chic (with a bit of faux marble, a map of Italy and a live tree growing through the roof) and for a grand total of 7 leva there's no complaints from this quarter.

As I mentioned in my intro page Asenovgrad is served by the most modern train in Bulgaria as part of the infrastructure for the recently modernised Plovdiv International Airport. From Plovdiv there's 17 trains a day in each direction with the journey taking about 25 minutes to cover the 18 km. Inside the carriages there's an LCD display of the station stops (in Cyrillic and Roman characters) and the stations are announced by an electronic voice.
As you would expect from an airport train there's plenty of luggage space with deep overhead racks and what looks like removable seats to creat further space if required. All the airport needs now is some planes!

When you travel through Asenovgrad for example to backovo, you will see many people selling melones during the summer days. Stop and buy one. So deliciously and healthy.

Favorite thing: If you're heading to or from the railway station and fancy a nibble on the hoof, or to sit and enjoy a couple of cheap beers, then this little row of cabins on Blvd Vasil Levsky will fit the bill perfectly. There's a chicken rotisserie, a couple of Doner takeaways, a convenience store and a little wooden cafe bar where a bottle of Zagorka is only 1.20.
Good enough for me but a little too damp to have a take-away which is how I ended up down the road at the Pizzeria Roma.
PS I think the bus station is behind here as well.
