Rakia Bar Raketa

'Rakia Bar Raketa' is a trendy restaurant in the city centre, located in ‘Zaimov’ Park. If you have never lived in the Communist Era, here you can feel the Russian influence in Bulgariа during these years. 'Rakia' is Bulgaria’s national drink, usually made from grapes, but also plums and other fruits. It has different variations from soft to stronger ones. You can taste all these flavours here, because, believe me, the Rakia menu is rich. You can also order home-made food, just like the one from the old days, when the food didn't contain GMO and 'vegan' sounded somehow exotic. There is a variety of 'old school' items, some of them I could easily recognise from my childhood. Yet the atmosphere is modern and the service is good.

Споменавала съм Ракия Бар Ракета в блога, но този път исках да дам повече светлина на местенцето. Разположено в парка Заимов, както може да се предположи, заведението е бар, в който ракиеното разнообразие е основен акцент. За любителите на бира има различни видове пиво, а внимание си печели и наливният Гларус. От кухнята има и "да", и "не". Бих препоръчала домашния суджук Ракета, но определено казвам "не" на пилешките крилца. Салатите са ок, а домашната торта с праскови е вълшебна. Не на последно място впечатление прави интериорът, който издържан в стила на соц-а, дава тема на размисли и дискусии за отминалото време. Ще припознаете прахосмукачката, с която на времето будехте съседите на първия етаж, както и много други олд скул вещи, събрани в модерния ракиен бар.

If you think you can handle more of the Communism spirit, then the bar right next to the 'Rakia Bar Raketa', called Sputnik, can offer you thrilling cocktails with Communist names. Have you ever been to a restaurant like 'Rakia Bar Raketa'? Are you interested in visiting such a place?

Ако случайно Ви дойде настроението за още соц, съседният Спутник бар винаги е опция, където можете да пиете коктейл в гюведже, "Соц on the beach", "Rakia Sunrise" и още куп други с интересни имена. А Вие ходили ли сте в Ракия Бар Ракета? С какви впечатления сте от мястото?

  6. It's nice to know that every place in the world doesn't yield completely to going "contemporary everything." This place looks homey, gritty, but inviting. A refreshing comfort I'm sure. Thanks for sharing, and giving us a glimpse of memories from childhood. /Madison
