GastronoMe opened in the autumn of 2011. Somehow the news of a French grocery store came to me quite quickly, but traveling back and forth to the States and my limited visits to Sofia this winter and spring, I only got to check out this delightful little shop this week. The shop owner Maria, also a Bulgarian food blogger of the site LaMartinia, shares her love of good food by offering Sofians French products imported directly from France.
The design is very provincial, it almost has that L’Occitaine vibe. A quaint and intimate shop that alleviates the need to trek to Carrefour for your French gastronomic needs.
They carry a variety of mustards, pates, rillets, mayonnaises, waters and other non-perishable items.
A nice selection of wines, condiments, sauces and chestnut purees and other products.
The shop is a great resource for those living in the center or wanderers like me. I truly enjoy strolling through Sofia, especially during the warmer months when the flora are in bloom. During my jaunts, finding a shop like this hits the spot. As I walked away and rounded the corner, I regretted that I didn’t buy a bottle of Volvic water, which is one of my favorites.
