Chinese culture used to recognize eating with knife and fork as a barbarian act of disrespect, associating cutlery with weapons. So let’s take some wisdom from the Far East and try chopsticks.
Sasa is just across from the House of Parliament, so you get a view of that, the monument of Emperor Alexander II and St. Aleksandar Nevski Cathedral behind them.
With an atmosphere reminiscent of a Japanese restaurant, Sasa offers whatever sushi and Eastern seafood kitchens can offer plus some delicacies modified by its chefs. Honestly, it was there where I first tried sweetened fish. Tip: it was not the greatest idea. So if you are like me, there is a high possibility that you will encounter something in your dish you never knew existed before. Another cool thing is it’s very rare to happen upon freshly made spring rolls and not frozen ones, but they have it.
Their cocktails are a ‘must-drink’ as their barista invented most of them. If you’re into peppery – get Hot Watermelon, if it has to be salty – Sobolita, if fresh – Matcha Vera.
Apart from lunch and dinner, it’s perfect for cocktail and shrimps at 5 o’clock (Bulgarian version is having a meal between lunch and dinner and alternatively warm up with the drinks).
