You are living in Luxembourg and are curious to taste the Bulgarian cuisine? Luxembourg is a country where you can meet different cultures and cuisine. Today, we give you our tips to eat in a bulgarian style in Luxembourg.
You can do it at the Amber Stuff - the only Bulgarian restaurant in Luxembourg. You can go there through a romantic path accross the forest - be careful however, a few deers may cross the road - and after half an hour's drive from the city centre, you will arrive there, in Imbringen.
The atmosphere in this restaurant is casual and the staff very welcoming.
Traditionally, we start with rakya and shopska salata - a mixture of cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and grated sirene, a salty white cheese close to the Greek feta.
Taste also the kachkaval - another kind of cheese made of ewe’s milk, yellow colored, which is served breaded, and the kyopolou, a caviar prepared with roasted eggplants and peppers crushed with parsley and garlic. Among the hot starters, you can have the tchouchki burek, fresh or grilled peppers, stuffed with cheese then fried, or the sarmi, which are vine leaves stuffed with minced meat.
The satchs are the most ordered dish – those are huge meat skewers served on a hot plate. The pieces are cut by the server – not with a knife but with a sword, and even if this seems a little weird, everyone is having fun and the customers pleasantly take photos. Don’t miss the kavarma as well – this a kind of pork or chicken stew, with tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, lots of onions, covered with an egg, served in small ceramic pots.
The portions are huge, which is a typically Bulgarian tradition, and a dish would be sufficient for two persons, so it’s better to really be hungry before you go there. For the dessert, don’t forget of course to taste the famous Bulgarian yoghurt with honey - really delicious and it is also said that it is the secret of a long healthy life. Enjoy your meal and be careful with the rakya - it is really hot !
