One of the things I can’t resist doing when I visit a place, is to try its food, as long as I can afford it. Food can tell you some things about a people, you know, how adventurous or wild or calm they are, yeah there you have it, a thesis topic (worth exploring, incase you are studying something related to food or people) and help you appreciate them more. I have to say Romanian food is delicious. Its tasty, full of flavour and very very affordable. So, for the two months spent there, while I cooked in my hostel most of the time, I didn’t forget to try some Romanian dishes.
Snackies, great for in between memealals and for when you are just not that hungry. I have to admit my favorite pastry in Romania was Covrigi, especially the one made by Gigi. And below are a few others I tried and just had to share with you.
I was surprised to see fornetti here in Romania. Fornetti is quite popular in Hungary as well, so I didn’t bother having any. Highly recommended if you find yourself in Hngary or Romania!
Restaurants are quite generous with ther serving of soup. Most soups are served with bread and I can say, all have a similar taste. Its not African or Asian, different from Hungarian but good and unique. Soups are often times the appetizers before you have the main meal, but I suggest trying this only if you are with company and have a long time to spend on your meal. I was readily filled with just the soups alone. I remember the two times I had soup, followed by the main meal at one restaurant, I really had to wait a while after the meal, cause I just could not walk aferwards. Don’t laugh at me 😛
So I think we could agree that the main meals in Brasov, consists os meat, potatos, polenta and more meat. Oh and cabbage. This is what was on the menu of most local restaurants. I love rice and tried having it a few times, but decided to stick to potatoes and polenta, I think these were better tantalizing
This was quite good. Its the first time I’ve had a meal so similar to nigerian cooking. The stew was great, taste, oil and salt mix was perfect. Polenta is like turned semovita
Well yeah, thats it. At some point in my journey my phone went kaput, this why we should back up our photos in one drive or google drive. Hehe, hope you enjoyed reading. If you did, do leave me a comment, saying what you liked or what you recommend and please share with your friends.
