In my previous post about Ozone Sky Bar, Eagle’s Eye View from Ozone Skybar and Lounge in Sofia, I wrote that I plan to visit their brunches. After finishing the summer trips and staying one weekend in Sofia, I decided to carry out this plan. When I called to reserve a table, I was offered 2 options for brunch – with flat charge “Party Brunch” and plain, a la carte. The first costs EUR 25 per person, no matter an adult or a child, and included a reserved seating on one of the terraces, where a DJ played music, free cocktails and 2 dishes from the brunch menu. I chose the second type, especially considering that for children this flat charge is too much, although they offered me to prepare mocktails instead of cocktails.
…. The brunch menu is not large and is very interesting. It includes several types of traditional things from the Bulgarian cuisinesuch as deep fried buns, shupla, a cheese and bacon cake, similar to pizza, fried slices of Easter bread.
Shupla is a traditional dough creation, which origin is from southwestern Bulgaria, Razlog and Bansko. It is made of something like a thick crust of flour and salt with cold water, which is baked and then smeared with eggs, then sprinkled with cheese.
As expected, there were several suggestions with eggs: royal eggs, which are something like Eggs Bene, mixed with truffles and shakshuka-eggs in tomato sauce;
…. Of course, you can also order standard a la carte;
…. It’s great to have a view like Ozone offers from the 29th floor on a Sunday morning. The sun was shining, the air was unusually clear, Vitosha, Plana and the Stara Planina mountains looked as close as if you could touch them.
…. We were accommodated near the hall with the DJ, which was nice because that’s how we heard his set, even though we weren’t with a Party Brunch allowance;
…. Unfortunately, after we were settled on our table, for a long time no one paid attention to us and I had to go and ask to be served.
…. The music was good, dynamic, and on Sunday mornings it created a good mood.
Movie watching time: 1:19 min.
…. Shakshuka with eggs has slightly oriental aromas because of the cumin and makes it very playful and fun.
…. Home-made deep-fried buns – tiny, very crunchy, with sugar and separately liquid chocolate and blueberry jam, just wonderful;
…. Eggs Royal– the Hollandaise sauce was exceptional;
…. Quiche – Cheese and bacon are baked on a tartlet;
…. Coffee, they will garnish it with tiny cookies.
If I have to compare this brunch in Ozone, with the other that I regularly visit in Koto, although the view in Ozone one of a kind and beats undoubtedly in the category See…, in Koto the brunches hold the championship in versatile choices, typical for the buffet, the contact of the creators with the customers, as well as the price-quality ratio.
The quality of the food in Ozone is at an exceptional level, but a flat tax of EUR 25, including alcohol no by our choice, is not justified. The DJ extra is available in Koto too.
