This is not your only option of course. Bucharest has a lot to offer when it comes to Romanian food. Let’s see some other ideas you can explore.
Romanian Food on the Go
There are many people that think Bucharest has taken the Pretzel to a whole new level. All across Romania, you’ll find interesting snacks and many of them are new interpretations of Pretzels. You can find:
- The Classic Pretzel
- Sweet pretzels with fruit jam inside
- Strait ones with Sausage and Cheese inside
Most people you pass by on the street will be holding this snack in their hands and munching away. This particular Romanian food has become popular in the Communist era. A warm pretzel and a Sana yogurt would be a healthy breakfast that people could enjoy on their way to work, in the early hours of the morning.
If you’d like to find out more local options for daily snacks we invite you to our Unhealthy Food Tour of Bucharest. You’ll get to see the largest and oldest traditional market and learn more about the cities history. We’ll swap wine tasting for a pint of local beer and try different snacks that Romanians love.
A Traditional Dinner = A Cultural Mixture
Romania’s been influenced in its history by many cultures. Keeping its original core and adding layers of flavor coming from:
- Turkish influences
- The Russian Empire
- Hungarian minorities
- Balkan cuisine.
The Romanian food tells that story in a very enjoyable way. If you’d like to understand more of the culinary culture your best bet is a dinner in a nice restaurant in Bucharest. As many regions in Romania grow rich-tasting grapes, wine tasting the local selection is also an option.

On most weekends, you can even enjoy a folklore program at these locations as well.
