Bucharest, My Home, Restaurants, Reviews, Romania


Post available in English and Romanian
Am nevoie disperata de o vacanta dar sunt blocata in Bucuresti la birou. Din fericire, problema are o rezolvare … de moment. Daca tot nu pot pleca in vacanta, macar sa ma prefac. Asa am ajuns sa incerc “Food and travel concept store” – un restaurant din centrul vechi, care are o prezentare putin … altfel. O parte a restaurantului arata fix ca o taverna din Grecia. Pentru mine, cealalta parte a fost insa mai atractiva. Asta pentru ca arata ca … un avion.


Ideea mi s-a parut foarte misto, asa ca m-am suit la bord si nu am regretat nimic. Am tras un ochi pe net inainte, ca sa vad ce pot sa mananc si ce ma asteapta. Nu stiu de ce multora nu le-a placut. Nu e nici inghesuit, mancarea e buna, ospatarul nostru a fost super de gasca si … am avut si cuier in care sa ne agatam hainele. Am comandat mai intai branza feta prajita si crochete cu branza si sunca si cate un pahar de vin, ca sa fie atmosfera fix ca in vacanta. Am trecut apoi la felul doi, salata de pui si frigarui de pui cu cartofi prajiti. Frigaruile au venit insotite si de un tatziki si de pita aromata. Gustul a fost autentic, fix ca in vacantele grecesti. Nu sunt fan fructe de mare si peste, dar produse erau destule in meniu. Lipsea insa desertul, poate totusi aveau meniu separat. Nu am intrebat. La partea de minusuri … ar fi bine sa se respecte macar o regula din avion, cea a fumatului interzis 🙂

I’m in desperate need of a vacation, but I’m stuck in Bucharest at work. Fortunately, the problem has a momentary fix. If I can’t go on a trip, at least I can fake it. And so I’ve tried “Food and travel concept store”, a restaurant in Bucharest’s Old City Center, that is a bit … different. Half of the restaurant looks like a Greek tavern, but for me the other side convinced me. That is because it looks like an … airplane.


I found the idea very cool, so I went aboard and I didn’t regret anything. I have searched online a bit before going, to see what I can eat and what are other customers saying. I don’t know why some people didn’t like it. It’s not crowded, the food was good, and our waiter did a good job, we also had a coatrack. We’ve ordered first fried feta cheese, cheese and ham sticks and two glasses of wine, so we could feel the “holiday” spirit. For the second course we had chicken salad and chicken skewers. The skewers came with tzatziki and some tasty pita. The taste was very authentic, just like in a Greek holiday. I don’t usually eat fish and sea fruits, but there were plenty of products on the menu. The dessert was missing, but maybe they had separate menus. We didn’t ask. As a minus, they should stick to the airplane rule and respect a no smoking policy. 🙂
