  Schkembe Chorba / Tripe soup
by desert_princess

And this is the soup for the cold nights in winter.
Made out of veal or pork tripe , boiled in salt water and adding milk afterwards , The Schkembe chorba is one of the most popular National Dishes. To improve the taste ,you add hot chilli pepper and a mixture of Vinegar and garlic ,making the whole experience very hot and spicy - the way we bulgarians like it.
You might find the taste strange , but we are perfectly used to it.
It is known to have a positive effect against heavy hangover when taken in the morning...

Directions: In every Mehana and restaurant with traditional cuisine
