Top 3 Hidden Gems: Restaurants You Have to See in Bucharest
November 16, 2017
If there is something the Romanians love and take very seriously, it would be the complete dining and wining experience. In other words, the food and the delicious variety of “eau de vie” that is often served with it. So it is no surprise that Bucharest scores high when it comes to cool restaurants.
If you go to the old city center, which can be found within a few minutes’ walk from Le Boutique Hotel Moxa, you will be surprised to find that cool restaurants are one next to the other. However, there are some hidden gems that tourists rarely get to see, unless accompanied by a foodie or knowledgeable native. Here is a list with three delicious gems. Which one will you choose for tonight?
The restaurant is downtown but in a somewhat secluded and private neighborhood. It serves fish and seafood, with an impressive menu. Have you ever tasted fish meatball soup or sturgeon soup? It is a feast for your taste buds. How about fish lasagna? The dishes are so varied that it will be difficult to choose and you will certainly be curious to try as many as possible. The fish is mainly from the Danube Delta or the Black Sea, so it is wonderfully fresh and tasty.
This restaurant should be on every tourist to Bucharest’s list. The building hosting the restaurant is from 1879. The architecture is unique both outside and inside the restaurant. And the food is a combination of the finest Romanian traditional food and the best international dishes. In other words, you can try a Romanian roasted pork knuckle on a bed of cabbage with pickles and polenta if you crave some real comfort food or some of the best veal steaks with butter- your choice. Make sure to book a reservation as the place is often packed, especially on weekends.
Traveling with the girls? Then you will certainly appreciate some food and fashion at DaDa bistro! They have an extensive menu that changes each season, and their promise is to deliver the whole world on a plate. Keywords? Urban, omnipresent, international, traditional, authentic, unique and innovative. Think fresh baby spinach salad with fresh figs and blue cheese. Just to get an idea. And the highlight of the venue is the fashion exhibition that is in the same location. So while you have lunch or dinner, you can enjoy beautiful art and even buy original pieces made by talented Romanian artists.
