You can’t miss La Plâcinte, as it is located at Piata Romana and easily accessible. The place has a very original design, hence the original ambiance, with powerful Moldavian features.
I recommend La Plâcinte for the menu. The food is great. I mostly enjoy the pies they have which can be sweet or sour, with different dumplings. Among the several types they serve, I highly recommend ‘Invartite’ where you can choose the fillings at your taste.
Something unique which cannot be found in any other restaurant in Bucharest is ‘Kompot’. This is a refreshing drink, non-alcoholic, made out of forest fruits (in this particular case); it is like a fruit stew and I recommend drinking it cold.
Another unique product in their menu is the herring salad. Give it a try as a starter and you won’t be disappointed. The price for it is only 15 lei…
I go to La Plâcinte quite often, at least once a week and trust me, book a table in advance as the place is crowded at lunch and every evening.
