Shopska salad
THE TRADITIONAL BULGARIAN FLAVOUR
Signature Dish

Enjoy the authentic Bulgarian flavour with our Signature Dish “Shopska salad” at Come Prima Restaurant.

It not only represents the spirit of the hotel’s local region, but also reflects the company philosophy of being surprisingly daring in creating traditions and memorable experiences.

The salad is most often consumed as an appetiser in perfect combination with the hotel’s signature drink—Rakia (similar to the Italian grappa). Rakia is the traditional drink of Bulgaria. It is a clear alcoholic beverage made from the distillation of fermented fruits. There are different types of Rakia, all depending on what fruit it is made from—grapes, plums, apricots, pears, apples, cherries, figs or quinces. In Bulgaria, the most popular Rakia is made from grape.
