Restaurants in Transylvania

Transylvanians are connoisseurs of food and if you are a foodie, you are bound to enjoy Transylvanian cuisine. Their meals always end with a lovely dessert, chosen from a list of extraordinary cakes. If you were to understand what a Transylvanian typically likes to eat, you would need to think of the taste of bread, eaten hot from the oven, with a piece of smoked lard or bacon and an onion, washed down later with a glass of palinca (a fruit brandy generally made from prunes).

Romania national specialities

Romania is famous for its delicious, hearty soups. Meatball soup (ciorba de perisoare) and a vegetable soup with the option of added meat (ciorba taraneasca) are very popular. There’s also tocanita, a filling meat stew flavoured with onion and spices and ghiveci, cooked with over twenty vegetables. You could also try sarmale, a Romanian speciality of sauerkraut rolls, filled with minced meats and rice and seasoned with spices. Tuica, or plum brandy, is usually served with appetizers.
