Hi! I'd like to know places to eat sharmala. I've heard about Caru Cu Bere but do yo recommend others?

Sarmale means pickled cabbage rolls stuffed with spicy mince meat (fatty pork meat). It is quite a heavy meal for 30 Celsius degrees outside. Have some digestive enximes pills with you. Or get some red wine with. You can have anywhere this kind of dish but try Crama Domneasca reztaurant in the Old Town.

Hi Dana,
Do you mean sarmale, the minced meet in cabbage leafs? I guess there are many restaurants where you can eat that, but if would like to try a traditional restaurant I would suggest you to try "Vatra". Very Romanian, and not expensive.
Hope it helps.
Cheers!

Dear Dana, you can also try Horezu Pub. They have very good tripadvisor ranking amongst foreigners and Romanians also. The guys that have the Pub are acquaintances of mine and I know for sure they do " Sarmale" in-house with only traditional ingredients and being a small restaurant the atmosphere is very nice and you feel like home. Caru cu bere and Hanu Berarilor are big restaurants and pretty expensive for a Romanian.

“Sarmale” is a very common dish in Romania. You can find it on the menu of almost all Romanian restaurants. It is traditionally served with “mamaliga” (polenta),
sour cream and hot pepper. There were suggested only restaurants from Old Town.

Hi.:)
Caru cu Bere is nice and serves good Romanian food. U can also try Hanu Berarilor ( hanuberarilor.ro) or Vatra (vatra.ro) for great specific Romanian food.

If you want a more casual dining, you can also try "La mama", the one near Romanian Atheneum: http://www.lamama.ro/locatii/. Ask for sour cream and hot pepper to go with. Enjoy!
