I'm planning to visit Bulgaria sometimes around the Spring of next year. Maybe I can come back and try this quiz after that. Right now I'm afraid I would get 0. :(

Awesome! The only 3 I didn't get were patatnik, chubritza and elenski but. And I missed the second one simply because I didn't bother to check the translation of savory. Also, it took me longer that I care to admit to figure out that the tripe soup is with its Bulgarian name here and to stop trying to figure out what other name there can be for it in English. :D
