Good morning, dear readers, here we are in a new week of April in Bucharest, in which whatever we leave dressed from home, it will prove meteorologically during the day that it was a wrong choice.
It seems that things are starting to turn in the normal direction of a normal spring in the Capital – the sun has set, the girls are shaving their mustaches over the winter, now that they see them better in the light, Delta Văcărești catches fire from time to time, and Robert Negoiță is slowly changing some curbs in Sector 3.
The people of Bucharest have started going out in the city and on the terraces again, both to take advantage of the good weather and due to a constant panic that who knows how and when the next Apocalypse will come and what it will be.
In this regard, we have crocheted below a list of good things to eat this spring, especially for those who want to work in advance on the beach body. Let’s go!
Arzu Bucharest, of Mazilique
For me, Cristina Mazilu is a culinary Beyonce, because her attention to detail and a very nice obsession with perfection make everything that comes out of her (and the team’s) hands to eat beautiful. This happened 10 years ago, when she only had the blog and was cooking for friends, including the undersigned, but especially now, when she opened her first restaurant, which she calls Arzu and it’s on Romulus Street. The menu is a combination of her favorite recipes, comfort food with Middle Eastern influences (a passion of Cristina’s, which is why she traveled a lot in the area) and dishes with seasonal ingredients. Be sure to try Oasis Cake (a cake soaked in rose water, saffron and pistachios) and Everything But The Bagel Quiche, an absolutely adorable salmon quiche.
Cake Van Cakes
This year, my favorite weekend cakes (they would be favorites during the week, but not available) can be found at the Cotroceni Flying Square, in front of the Military Academy. Cake Van is a food truck dedicated exclusively to natural ingredients cakes. Many remember the taste of childhood and even the Van I found them very difficult – cake of biscuits with boiled cream, ECLERE with cream from the one that evokes the ’90s before the bad ingredients come over our lives. The tops are syrupy and delicious, the creams are light and fluffy. Be sure to try the raspberry and mascarpone cake, eclairs, almonds, musai, and apple pie.
Balls cauliflower in the new house
Dances, this enchanting place with meatballs, with the slogan Have some balls !, of course, moved to a new and beautiful house on Regina Elisabeta Boulevard. With the move, the queen of their menu returned, and one of my favorite dishes from around town was the cauliflower. You can enjoy it bathed in the rays of the sun on Elisabeta, fried in an oil bath, with a wonderful crunchy breadcrumbs, dipped in mayonnaise with sriracha sauce or you can order it through applications, because sometimes in life we are lazy. ALSO, during this period, at Balls they have stevia borscht with loboda, which I highly recommend after an evening of shots, but not only.
La Bottega dei Sapori
An Italian restaurant, run by Chef Vittorio, which cooks according to its own inspiration, with very fresh ingredients, in that Italian style that manages to give an incredible taste to pasta with only three ingredients, then explains to you with a glass of prosecco that in Italy , if someone puts cream in the carbonara, the neighbors immediately call the police. Go La Bottega dei Sapori and ask him to make you a tasting menu with several kinds of pasta, with fresh tuna and capers, with basil and burrata and ask him what fish he has that day. You will thank me infinitely.
Peking Duck of the Obor
We end with the Queen of the Ducks, Beijing, more precisely, known since the time of the Ming Dynasty. restaurant, which takes its name from the eponymous duck, has been in the Obor area for many years – in addition to a very authentic and beautiful interior, the duck itself is majestic. Order half a duck for two, which will come with Chinese pancakes, sauce, green onions and cucumbers, plus the spicy fried carcass, which is crazy.
I wish you maximum success, good luck and you can write to me to thank me.
