From 13th of March until 13th of May 2020 all the restaurants in Bulgaria are closed and they can only deliver food for home. After compiling a list of restaurants and stores in Sofia that deliver food in the current state of emergency, we decided to put together a list of local food businesses you can support in Plovdiv too.
Our message is clear – #SupportLocal is a movement that encourages people to shop locally when possible and thus – support those restaurants in need since no one knows when they will be allowed to open again, in what terms, will there be people coming in. Ordering food from our favourite restaurants will help them get through this crisis a lot easier.
In this list we’ve selected a couple of restaurants and food places with English-speaking staff in the beautiful town of Plovdiv that deliver food or drinks during this state of emergency.
You can check out their menus, work time and what do they offer. You can see a soup bar, sandwich place, pasta place, bio beer delivery and 3 different restaurants that offer you a rich variety of salads, main dishes and desserts.
Feel free to reach out to us and suggest any other English-friendly places to include in the list – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message on Facebook.
