Grab a quick, healthy meal:  I’m quite basic when it comes to restaurants, I usually go to the most popular ones in the city. There’s one place in Sofia which I adore it’s called “Confetti”, but can’t say I’m going there for the healthiest meals, I mean they have the best Italian ice cream, pizza and Caesar salad- my favorite. I’m also a big fan of sushi and I often visit sushi places.LUX Magazine 39456354348240b07e56c17b9c2fa30f7743-800x345 Bulgaria Local places to visit | Martina Manolcheva
