As for the drinks we recommend Ayran, a refreshing smoothie with yogurt and mint nana to round off your meal. Then there is the Romani Kafenava, a Roma restaurant, where among other dishes meat ravioli and cheese-spinach tortellini will be served. For Asian food lovers the restaurant Ngon – flavors of Vietnam” will prepare spicy Vietnamese chicken with ginger.
