What better place to restart reviews of interesting places, after spending Covid and after a partial restoration of the sense of smell, than the place that fans of the blog placescases.com have read about the most so far. We are talking about not any place, but the emblematic Paramun Inn, at the fork for the village of Paramun, near Sofia in the direction to Trun town. If you are planning a weekend in the beautiful natural environment of Transko, the famous eco-trail in the gorge of the river Erma, on the way back or to, stop by and eat something from their traditional cuisine. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, regardless of the inconspicuous appearance of the joint.

…. Continuous flow of customers. Everyone wants to sit down for a while to eat something for lunch, and in the later hours, at 4-5 o’clock for a caramel cream and coffee;
…. Refrigerators full of farmer dairy products – yellow cheese, milk, babek, as well as sushenitsa, sausages, fresh eggs, all kinds of things you can buy for home – they are worth it, they are very tasty;
Babek is like yellow cheese but very fresh, not aged.
…. Shelves with various types of honey, jam, non-traditional home canned food such as mushrooms or peppers with cottage cheese – I took pure thistle honey, it is very tasty. These shelves are new compared to my previous visit. Handmade traditional souvenirs are also available;
…. The tables are completely outside, outdoors or behind windshields, wooden, with traditional Bulgarian tablecloths;
…. Well, it looks a little miserable inside, but it’s very authentic, a lot of things scattered on the side of the building. That’s why I’m taking down two hearts. On the other hand, with these anti-epidemic measures, opening, closing, it is not easy for restaurateurs to keep things neat and tidy;
…. The beautiful view of the hills around, calm, because the road is not very busy, a pleasant feeling of relaxation;
…. A child, the daughter of the owner, of pre-teen age, helps her parents, nimbly and politely serves the tables – the restaurant is self-service, but in fact she helps the customers by bringing them the ordered food, so there is not crowding indoors, to avoid virus spreading;
…. Definitely not a place to sit and spend an hour or two in sweet talk, because the turnover of customers pushes and the idea is to quickly eat and get up, to free seats for others. You may be a little hasty, but this is a roadside tavern after all.
…. Friendly owners who seem to work hard and try to keep their business, despite the constant closure and pandemic cataclysm. They have run the restaurant for many years and are obviously doing well;
…. I hope you are a fan of dogs, because two or three hungry pals are patiently surrounding the outside tables with a hungry look and sticking out tongue, waiting for some kindly thrown piece of steak.
…. The birds and the song of the awakening spring nature;
…. Noise of passing cars from the road – the inn is literally on the road.
Movie watching time: 1:36 min.
…. Aroma of green spices in the bean soup – I was pleased to find that several more aromas have been restored in my sense of smell, after the covid virus stole them away from my tongue and nose;
… Lightly smoky smell in the sushenica we took for home – it is made of pure pork fillet, smoked on beech wood;
…. Well, you may smell a little bit of exhaust fumes from passing, stopping or starting cars next to the inn.
…. Spurga – If you’ve never tried this old traditional dish, here’s the place to catch-up. You have a choice between plain and with eggs.
Sparga means “fried food” and it is very tasty traditional Bulgarian dish made from pulled or minced pork and offal. I didn’t feel any offal here, just a well-pulled pork. In short – I liked it!
…. The steaks, meatballs, kebabs and sausages are grilled and nice, and the chicken steaks are wrapped in a tender pork veil;
…. French fries are worth it;
…. You can finish with a nice caramel cream, pancake, homemade yogurt with jam.
…. Be sure to buy from their farm products. They are very nice and tasty!
Everything offered in Paramun Inn is close to Bulgarian traditional taste, but it is very tasty and masterfully prepared.
In addition to the things listed in the Taste category, there was polenta, tripe soup, lamb soup and various other favorite dishes from the Bulgarian traditional cuisine. The diligence and good attitude of the people who manage and work in it is remarkable. So if you travel to Sofia and you are curious to explore traditional out of the path, non-touristic and authentic spots I recommend to stop by, you will not regret it.
