Borovets - Special Dietary Requirements (Dairy Allergy)

I am turning to this forum as it seems to be the place to get helpful and accurate information....I hope you can help!

One of our party has special dietary needs - They CANNOT eat any Dairy (Milk, Butter, Cheese), Eggs or Nuts.

(This is due to a medical condition leading to an extreme allergic reaction/anaphylactic shock.

Please can you advise - Are there any restaurants that would cater for this person/requirement?

Perhaps someone has a similar condition or experience....or knows especially helpful restaurants (or ones to avoid)?

We are staying in the Hotel Rila....but wouldn't feel confident that the Buffet would be suitably labelled (or cross-contaminated)....no disrespect to the hotel or guests.

Any advice or suggestions would be good.

I have just had a very helpful response from the Food and Bev Manager at the Hotel Rila.

- They advise that the buffet is clearly labelled (with Allergy info) and also advised that the Executive Chef would be able to accommodate special dietary needs.

This seems very promising.....I'll report back after the new year.

Any other suggestions for helpful Restaurants or Bars welcome.

Hi Jim
It might be useful to print out the following and have it handy to show in restaurants if you are out and about. Or alternatively if you have a smart phone you can copy and paste it into your notes to show where required?

Имам непоносимост към мляко и млечни продукти, не мога да ям сирене, масло или мляко

It says "I have an intolerance to dairy products and cannot eat cheese, butter or milk"

I am sure Bobby in Bobbys bar will be prepared to help. I am a vegan and they have always gone out of their way to help me.

Hi Jim

The short answer is that I'm not sure. I do agree with the above though re having the printed message ready. I also think that Kas at Bobbys Bar will be able to help and I know that her kitchen team are fantastic.

If you have Facebook then please join our 'Borovets 2017-Snow, Skiing, Boarding & Everything Else - Information Group' as the are bound to be members who have asked this question or come across this before in Borovets.

Hello Jim,

So if the chefs doing a good job, you should used every restaurant
