Last Wednesday night we joined our friends for a meal together at the Sofia Hilton. The Hilton was having a Thai Food Festival and our friend is the Honorary Consul of Thailand in Bulgaria. It was our first visit to the Hilton and its Seasons Restaurant. The special menu for the occasion had some interesting Thai dishes (although we passed on the prawns and pork). Although the service was a bit slow due to the fact that the restaurant was crowded, we enjoyed the Bulgarian wine and the company.
When the bill came for our party of six it was 165 Leva per couple (82 Euros). What made the meal expensive was the wine selection.
Last night Jodie and I dined at a Chinese restaurant not far from our house (after two other nearby Chinese restaurants had closed down). The food was quite good and served in large portions. In fact, the portions were so large that we will have another two full meals this week with the leftovers. The cost for this meal for 2 people, including tip, was 28 Leva (14 Euro).
