Fodor's Expert Review Arbat

$ Arbanasi Eastern European

A super central location draws in Arbanasi sightseers, who stay for Arbat's excellent home-made bread, best washed down with locally-brewed Boliarka beer. The food served is traditional Bulgarian pub grub. On any given day two of the four clay pot stews are available–fish, chicken, lamb, or veal–alongside grilled meats, fried potatoes, and shepherd's and shopska salads; the former is a Turkish salad of chopped tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and parsley and the latter is similar, but with peppers and cubes of sirene, a mild white brine cheese similar to feta. Service here is a bit slow, and some staff members do not speak English as well as others; check your bill to make sure there are no mistakes. Avoid the street-side tables closest to the bus stop.
