Street food in Romania

If you’re in the mood to snack, Romania serves up a host of street food options. There are covrigi or warm pretzels, lango?i, a sweet or savoury pancake, gogo?i (doughnut coated with powdered sugar) and spicy, sausage-shaped meat patties called mici.

Many shops sell popular eastern fare such as kebabs and shawarma (?aorma). For the sweet-toothed, there are an irresistible variety of pastries (merdenele, poale-n brau, dobrogene, ardelenesti) and pancakes stuffed with all manner of goodies like chocolate, ice cream, bananas and jam.
