Propaganda is the place to go if you’re curious to catch a soviet-times vibe in Chisinau. The interior design and the menu reproduce a little bit of the atmosphere of that epoch.
Why is Propaganda called that? It is owned by a famous local journalist Natalia Morari, who frequently becomes a headline on the local news thanks to her interviews and investigations. Natalia was always on the barricades and is a local influencer. Some may be lucky to meet her while having a beetroot borsh at lunch.
Don’t hesitate to order Borsh, Zeama or Soleanka – all of them worth a taste.
I also love Shuba salad and the chicken liver pâté with garlic blended smooth to spread on bread crackers and the bruschetta mix.
One of my favorite dishes is the pasta with salmon and the warm chicken liver salad.
If you never leave without a good dessert then my suggestion is a lemon tarte or the tasting dessert menu which contains a few phenomenal desserts.
Don’t ignore the wine menu. If you love reds, order a glass of Lupi from Gitana, Rara Neagra by Radacini or Negre by Fautor. If you’re more into whites, get a 310 Chardonnay and Feteasca Regala by Fautor or anything by Purcari.
