Food & Local Cuisine:

Traditional Rhodope  dressBulgarian cuisine is a mixture of Greek, Turkish and Slavonic influences. We sample many traditional specialities including ‘smilyanski fasul’, a delicious bean soup and ‘patatnik’, a local delicacy made with grated potatoes, onions, milk, cheese and seasoned with mint. Eggs and cheese are a staple part of the local cuisine, in particular 'sirene' a local feta-type cheese.

The unique hospitality of the local people, who are very friendly and helpful and the delicious local cuisine, attract many of those who have decided to spend a holiday in Momchilovtsi and the Rhodopi Mountains.

Shops can be found on almost every street in the village. They are small but sell almost everything. There is an abundance of fresh seasonal fruit, salad and vegetables in the shops and also in the market which is located in the centre of the village.
