Every sunrise in a new place brings a shiver of the unknown and a sense of adventure. Especially if it is lined up in a breakfast plate. We all know French, Continental and English snacks.

It turns out that this otherwise ordinary breakfast has made an impression on CNN and it is already present as a pretty exotic option for traditional morning foods around the world. Its varieties, as well as all other snacks, are countless. However, it is often prepared with bread, milk or tea, cheese, sugar or honey. At first sight all products look uncombined, but ultimately the result is worth trying.

And as the author of the CNN publication Casey Barber writes: „Popara follows in the long tradition of using leftover bread as the next day’s meal. This warm, comforting breakfast is a childhood favorite of many Bulgarians — it’s not quite a porridge and not quite a bread pudding, but shares characteristics of both.“

Mekitsi / Buhty

The mekitsi and their fellow boys – buhty, are two more traditional Bulgarian breakfasts, which children are looking forward to. The difference in their preparation is both in the dough and in the form, but both of them have a great taste. They are loved by everyone and they are worth trying while you are on Bulgarian land.


The juice is made from dried baking peel and it is very similar to some types of pasta. However, the technology for its preparation differs significantly. Noodle is most often associated with a hot morning breakfast, with the addition of cheese, sugar, fresh milk or tea.

The word `yofka` itself is not a plural, although it is composed of countless crushed dried crumbs. Quite often, the term yofka denotes the dish that is usually used to snacking at breakfast.
