5D score: 3.8 out of 5.
…. Friendly urban interior, modest tables in the small garden;
…. Nora Ampova’s paintings of animals on the walls;
…. Impressive twists of traditional dishes and cocktails in the menu.
…. Slow and confused waiter- unfortunately it’s the case every time I visit them.
…. Couldn’t hear any music.
…. Wonderful typical for eastern cuisine smell of my soup and an expected nice savour of my main dish, while very unpleasant smell of the other dish I tried.
…. Very good red lentils cream soup, Indian style;
…. Really tasty Non-shopski giyvetch (Shopski giyvetch is a traditional Bulgarian meal cooked in pottery, made of cheese, egg, meat and some vegetables) with home-made sazdarma (delicacy made of cooked beef with spices and some fat, served cold);
.… Mediocre taste of pork chop- didn’t smell good and lacked personality;
…. The signature for the place,Belgian chocolate dessert, served with salt and alcohol soaked raisins- very delicious.
It is not my first visit at Happy Pig. It is famous with its wonderful cocktails and twisted traditional dishes. The menu is changing at least once a season, therefore they can always surprise you with new and interesting dishes and drinks.
The thing is that, service is sloppy. Waiters forget the orders, confuse them and are quite slow- they do good monitoring on the tables they serve and you have to put much efforts to attract their attention.
No matter how poor the service, I persist in my efforts to test the new dishes and cocktails of Happy Pig every time they change it, since I always expect interesting surprises .
