Slovakia prepares for the Restaurant Day

ANYBODY may open his or her own pop-up restaurant at any unoccupied place in Slovakia on May 16 when the Restaurant Day will take place in Slovakia.

The only thing they need to do is to choose an original place and share good food, the Etrend.sk website wrote.

The idea to create the Restaurant Day originated in Helsinki, Finland, in 2011. Since then it has been held in 70  30 countries across the world, including Slovakia.

The event will be attended also by 13 non-profit organisations from DobraKrajina.sk which will open their restaurants or bistros, offering Japanese soup, anti-corruptionist goulash or original Armenian honey cake as well as vegan meals. The Domec day centre in Bratislava, which takes care of homeless people, will for example serve Thai specialties accompanied with photos and discussions. The People in Need NGO will serve original Roma flat cakes called marikle.

Aside from Bratislava the event will take place also in other places, including Modra, Košice, Prešov and Vinodol (Nitra Region).

The aim of the restaurateurs is not to make profit. All financial contributions are voluntary on the pay-as-you-like basis. In case of non-profit organisations you can taste delicious snacks and financially support activities that improve life in Slovakia, DobraKrajina.sk informed.
