Plovdiv Restaurant

Does anyone know which restaurant Rick went to in Plovdiv on the most recent Bulgaria episode? Also could you provide good non-touristy restaurants for a bit of a splurge in Plovdiv?

My Dentist is from Plovdiv. I'll put your question to him. It's the "May long weekend " up here in Canada so everything is closed until Tuesday (May 23) when I can ask him about "non-touristy restaurants for a bit of a splurge" .

I suspect--based on my fairly short visit to Bulgaria--that the combination of "non-touristy" and "a bit of a splurge" may not exist there (or in Romania). But, unlike you, I didn't ask for input prior to my trip and subsisted primarily on the widely available (and reliable) chicken kebab platters. I'm curious to see what others have to say so I can figure out what I missed.

Plovdiv is rarely overrun by tourists so it's not too likely that you will run into anything resembling a tourist trap. Anyway, I have listed my personal favorites here: http://www.flyingraconteur.com/blog/a-day-in-plovdiv-bulgaria

Also, if you happen to be in Plovdiv in early June, there is a fantastic concert at the Roman theatre: http://www.flyingraconteur.com/blog/the-mystery-of-the-bulgarian-voices

Please let me know if I can help in any other way. Plovdiv is one of my favorite cities. :)

P.S. Also, I just asked the tour guide RS uses in Bulgaria and he let me know the restaurant from the Bulgaria episode is Hebros in the old town - at the eponymous hotel.
