        Thank you very much for your comment! We are glad you enjoyed some of our recommendations! We also have replaced that restaurant with another one which is 100% halal.

        All the best!

    Any halal restaurant serving Bulgarian dishes ?
    The list is Turkish or Arabic, indian, Nepali..

      Hello,
      Here: https://samergrillhouse.com/en/ they serve Shopska salad which is Bulgaria’s most favourite and loved vegetarian salad.

      Unfortunately we haven’t heard of halal restaurants serving Bulgarian dishes with meat, we did some search in which we couldn’t find. The Bulgarian cuisine is not halal since Bulgaria is predominantly Christian country. There are still some very nice vegetarian Bulgarian dishes like the shopska salad, banitsa with apple/spinach, stuffed peppers with rice and vegetables, Panagyurski eggs, Sirene po shopski, etc.

  3. The first restaurant has link to a porn site please replace it with a restaurant website
