This week we visit: Moldova
If you are looking for great eating in Moldova, the city to explore is Chisinau, the country’s capital. Everywhere you turn in the biggest city of Moldova, you will find a great restaurant that will wow you with their amazing dishes, and in many cases, very interesting décor.
A restaurant you definitely have to see in Chisinau is Popasul Dacilor. The restaurant is located in a historic manor house and boasts a rustic décor you will fall in love with. Popasul Dacilor does a number of dishes, but it is the perfect place to sample traditional Moldovan food.
Crème de la Crème is another of Chisinau’s restaurants to experience, especially if you are looking for mouth-watering desserts. They are famed for their patisserie, but that is not all they do. They also do classic European dishes and despite the lavish interior, the prices are more than reasonable.
For something different, head out to Gok-Oguz, a restaurant that specializes in the traditional food of the Gadauz region, with a bit of Bulgarian tradition thrown in for good measure. Lamb specialties are the main selling point of Gok-Oguz but this does not mean their other dishes are not spectacular.
Caravan is another unique restaurant, this time introducing you to Middle Asian foods, more notably the flavors of Uzbekistan. It is a cozy and warm place, perfect for a romantic dinner in the Moldovan capital.
