NO NAMES – AN URBAN RESTAURANT IN THE VILLAGE OF BAYLOVO, GORNA MALINA, SOFIA, BULGARIA
Last time visited in June 2015 with friends and family
See… neat interior and exterior reminding of Spaghetti Company restaurants in Sofia; the good presentation of the dishes
Smell… the good scent of the dishes
Taste… brownies with mascarpone, which is a copy paste of Spaghetti Company pangiallo
Feel and Experience… the fast response of the waiters to the customers’ needs
Hear… the sounds of the village at the restaurant terrace
I was very surprised on my way back from Ognianovo dam lake run into such an urban style restaurant in the village of Baylovo which instead of meat balls and kebapche or steaks, offers fusion cuisine between Italian and Bulgarian style as a typical urban place.
Indoors it reminds me very much of Spaghetti Company in Sofia. The menu looks the same too and some of the dishes are the same. For example my favorite pangiallo was a perfect copy paste, except for the name of the dessert.
I was interested to taste salmon cream soup with shimps. It had good taste but it was too watery, I hardly found salmon in it, so I returned it almost untouched.
Then the waiter recommended scad fish. That was really a good choice, both by the impressive presentation and the good taste.
Spaghetti bolognese was not bad too. So was the trout.
Pangiallo we ordered several times- obviously the whole company liked it much. Finally it turned out that we ate quite well and not expensive at all.
I would visit this NO NAMES again if my way passes through Baylovo but this time I wouldn’t experiment with extraordinary dishes and will choose more traditional ones.
For those who are interested, do not limit your visit only to this restaurant if you turn out to be in Baylovo. It is the birth place of one of the best Bulgarian writers Elin Pelin. The town nearby is named after him too. Visit his birth house and learn some more about Bulgarian culture.
