“Affordable Josper grill (think of burgers!)”
Review of Fresh Bar Kitchen

Fresh Bar Kitchen
Ranked #234 of 1,317 Restaurants in Sofia
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 March 2017 via mobile

At Fresh Bar & Kitchen you can find some very affordable burgers grilled on a Josper grill. The only other place in Sofia with a Josper grill that I know is Spaghetti (entirely different price-range). If you like that style of grill, FBK is your place.
They have both fresh meat and bread and tasty fillings, including​ traditional Bulgarian pepper chutney for the classic beef burger. On the downside, they use processed cheese instead of real cheddar, so the quality isn't always so amazing. In general, the burgers are a safe bet and unbeaten for the price of 5,50 lev (classic beef burger).
The cooked food is a hit and miss for me. Prices are okay, but it really fails to tempt me and the portions are usually on the small side.

Don't be fooled by the name as Fresh Bar Kitchen does not offer you freshly made food (except for the burgers and some pieces of meat, they are grilled right in front of you). This is a place that has prepared the meals already, you stand in line, tell the staff what you want and they will scoop it up and give it you so you can go to the counter and pay.

That doesn't mean that the food is bad. It's actually very tasty and the portions are reasonably priced. It's not always the same every day and sometimes the prices can be different (I guess because of price fluctuations for the ingredients).

You looking for something reasonable, quick, tasty and in the center of the city. Then this is for sure your place to go.

As a foreign living for three years in Sofia, I understand that sometimes it's not easy to communicate. And I accept that sometimes we are seen as a potential consumer.
Me and my wife used to come to this place in the weekend, The coffee could be better, but still, is a nice place to stay, in a crowded avenue of central Sofia.
We decide not to go anymore when for a coffee that would cost us 1.99 leva, they charged 3.15. If this was the price, we would pay without a problem. But we were unfairly priced, (maybe because we were foreigns and we would not complain?), but often customers. Nowadays, it doesn't make any sense to trick a customer, for a leva.
Even if this place is nice, we will not return, for a matter of principle. It wasn't a mistake, because the waiter didn't give us the receipt.
Generally, bad experience.

This restaurant offers a variety of choices with traditional Bulgarian food and standard kids food like burgers, pizza's and pasta. As parents we liked the choice - especially with salads which were really nice. The kids were already spoiled by the specialized burger restaurants in Sofia and a little critical on the burgers.
We ordered a dish which would take some time to be cooked and were warned. We asked to serve everything together which sadly failed and were given a discount on the bill without hesitation by the staff - excellent service.
Would come again if the kids would have liked the burgers a bit more.
