BAR & Mehana Lozenetz is a new concept for a traditional Bulgarian “mehana”. Normally you would find a lot of mehanas around Sofia and out of Sofia and they would all look like a traditional Bulgarian village house with all the wall decoration, tables, chairs, etc. More like a traditional tavern in the west world.
BAR & Mehana Lozenetz on the other hand have taken a different approach. A modern setting, resembling the traditional mehana, while still preserving all the good and traditional dishes. If you are already tired of the same interior you would find in a mehana – this is a good spot to try.
Most of the dishes are traditional and some of them I must say are really good. The tripe soup, which is a famous Bulgarian dish, is outstanding at this place. The pork ribs are done so well, that they will melt in your mouth. Banska kapama is another well-prepared dish, which is worth trying. The mixed grill is also good. They seem to have different desserts each time, so ask your waiter for the dessert of the day – you wouldn’t want to skip the dessert at this place, believe me.
The service is good and the location is close to the city center in the Lozenetz neighborhood – very close to Park Center mall and Hemus hotel.
