Bulgarian (Eastern European) Food in Orlando

Hi all,

I just moved to Orlanod from California, and I am looking for some ethnic Bulgarian (Eastern European food).

Please post any Bulgarian/ Greek/ ex-Yugoslavian, Russian grocery stores. I am looking for the basics - feta cheese, spices, meets, rosted peppers, lutenitsa (ajavar).

Also I am intereted to find out any restaurants and clubs with Bulgarians (Eastern European) food and music.

Thanks, P.

  1. I've been to a place called European Deli on South Orange in Orlando that seemed to focus on Czech and Polish groceries. There's also a Russian place on 17-92 in Casselberry or Maitland. It's in a strip mall that has a Cheers, but that's all I remember. I'm sure someone else will remember the name. I get the same mustard there that I have since seen Andrew Zimmern eating on "Bizarre Foods." It'll burn the hair out of your nostrils.

    1. The Orlando Sentinel's ethnic grocery guide lists a few Polish markets.

      1. Try Chef Henry's Cafe on Howell Branch Road in Winter Park. Their food is definitely Eastern European. I am not very familiar with Bulgarian food, but you might give it a try--the food is authentic and extremely good. Here's a link:

        1. Go to the Europa Market, good prices and variety.
          955 W. Lancaster Rd, Suite 2, Orlando FL 32809.
          Its Nice

          1. There is a nice Eastern European restaurant 7540 Universal Blvd Orlando Fl 32819.
            They also have a grocery store attached.
