I came upon this interesting concept of bread and food preparation some time ago, when I passed by SUN MOON bakery on a street in the centre of Sofia, close to the pedestrian Vitoshka str (look for addresses at the end of the review).
When I entered the bakery I was embraced by a fascinating aroma of fresh baked bread and exotic herbs. There was a young guy who was kneading dough who smiled and greeted me. The production of his joyous work was clearly visible, since just in front of me was displayed a variety of fresh baked untraditionally looking bread loafs. Apart from them the shop was offering cookies, small flat loaves with cheese, baked and raw sweets vegan style, fresh made lemonade, ayraan and many other tempting things. My mouth got wet and I bought 3 or 4 types of bread. There was rye, spelt, kamut, buckwheat, carob bread with olives, dry tomatoes and various seeds, so I hardly succeeded to choose. They all looked so delicious!
I noticed that there are several tables and a menu for the day. I was determined to visit them again for a meal.
Next time when I called on them, I stayed for lunch. The menu is very interesting, combining various types cuisine, consisting of home-made vegetarian and vegan dishes. All ingredients are organic and natural. For example, the only sweeteners that are used are dry fruits, honey, brown sugar and agave syrup.
When I write this now, my mouth is watering. 🙂 I just cannot help thinking of visiting them soon for dining!
