Moments to expect in the Cluj-Napoca food tour:

Introduction to Romanian cuisine

We start our first food tasting with traditional Romanian appetizers: various regional cheeses, cured meats and organic, home-grown vegetables from a friendly local butchery shop. Upon request we can go also for a light bakery tasting!

Introduction to Romanian cuisine

Farmers Market

The best way to understand traditional Romanian food is to visit a local food market to see what locals sell and buy. Your senses will be busy and love it here and and it's perfect place to buy "organic souvenirs"!

Farmers Market

Coffee or desert? Yes please!

The coffee culture in Cluj-Napoca has been booming in recent years: trendy and hipster-modern or small and simple, lots of shops serve speciality coffee of exotic origins, roasted and prepared using all sorts of techniques. Nonetheless, beer is also among the favorite drinks around fellow Cluj people. So we prepared for you both options upon request. Excellent coffee or Local Craft beers. We bet you can't decide! No worries, we will sort it out!

Coffee or desert? Yes please!

A traditional Romanian lunch

Next, we head to a cosy restaurant that serves delicious traditional Romanian dishes! Here we taste typical Romanian recipes but adapted to Transylvanian cuisine: the famous ciorba (a sour soup with vegetables and meat), different types of polenta and cabbage rolls aka sarmale, the Romanian national dish or the traditional "Varza a la Cluj"!

A traditional Romanian lunch

Desert! Yes please!

There is no holiday in Romania whitout home-made cupcakes or some other type of deserts. The best thing is that we can find those traditional deserts in a nice cake shop next to the main square of Cluj-Napoca!

Desert! Yes please!
