Where's The Best Bulgarian Food?

SusanaTheConqueress Apr 30, 2008 02:33 AM

I'm looking for the all-time very best Bulgarian restaurant and similarly excellent market in Southern California, please.
I am also interested in reading all options available from Los Angles to Palm Springs to San Diego.
Thank you!

    The only Bulgarian restaurant mentioned here that I can recall is Danube on Westwood Blvd. (1303 Westwood Blvd.) in West Los Angeles. I did see a photo review of the food that someone did, (not on CH) here on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/la_addic...

        Recently tried Danube. It was horrendous! Food was cold, portions were small. Totally uninspired cooking.

          I agree it is terrible, bad service, bad prices, and the food does not taste like it was freshly made.

        I don't know anything Bulgarian, but there is a Romanian restaurant called Dunarea on Euclid Street in Anaheim.

        Palm Springs and San Diego (and Riverside and San Bernardino) would need to be posted on the California board.

          As far as I know, there is only one Bulgarian place (as already mentioned).... Danube. My Bulgarian friends think it's awful.

          If you want to expand your area of search, perhaps you could post the search request on the 'California' Chowhound board?

            i think that your best bet would be to contact the only bulgarian orthodox church in southern california that i am aware of:


            there will be members who can let you know where they do their shopping.

            the area around st. sophia's used to have quite a few greek stores and restaurants - especially 20-30 years ago. there are probably one or two left. they would probably be on pico near normandie. good luck. let us know what you find.
