Mereu merg cu placere sa mananc La Placinte; nu am incercat pana acum ceva din meniul lor care sa nu imi placa. Evident, preparatele de baza sunt … placintele, care vin in multe forme si cu arome diferite. Ultima data am incercat invartite cu cartofi si branza de oi, dar la fel de bune sunt cele cu branza de oi si verdeata, pe care le comand mereu cu incredere. Daca nu aveti chef de placinte, apoi, aveti de unde alege, iata ce bine arata puiul invelit in bacon, care vine impreuna cu salata de varza si un sos delicios. Sau un alt preparat nou care mie imi place mult – taitei de casa cu branza de oi. Deserturile sunt toate la fel de bune, fie ca vin sub forma de placinta sau alte bunataturi. Si pentru ca a venit frigul, puteti sa asezonati totul cu un pahar de vin fiert aromat. If I’m in the mood to eat something delicious, then La Placinte (Pie’s place) is a sure bet, you can’t leave disappointed. Obviously, the main dishes are the pies, which come in many shapes and flavors. Last time I tried one with potatoes and sheep cheese, but the ones with cow cheese and herbs are as tasty if not even more so. If you’re not in the mood for pie, you have many other dishes to choose from, the chicken wrapped in bacon is very tasty and it comes with cabbage salad and a delicious sauce. I also love the homemade noodles, that go great with sheep cheese. The desserts are even better, either in pie form or other tasty treats. And because the cold weather is here, you can also order a delicious mulled wine to go with all the goodies.






Sometimes you need to stop and enjoy the good things in life. One of my favorite dessert places is Cremeria Emilia. You can taste a delicious ice cream and other tasty specialities.

Acum ca a venit frigul, imi e din ce in ce mai greu sa fac miscare. In primul rand imi e pra frig (si lene) sa mai ies din casa odata ce am ajuns la caldura.

Am gasit insa o solutie care sa ma motiveze in zilele acelea in care am chef de miscare: Squash-ul!

Now that the cold weather is here, I find it more and more difficult to get out and move. I’m too cold (and lazy) to get out of the house once I’m warm and cozy.

But I did manage to find a solution for the days when I find the motivation to stretch my bones: Squash!

Ronnie O’Sullivan se simte bine la noi in Romania si asta se vede. E deja la a treia vizita aici. De data asta e oficiala. Ronnie participa la European Masters, unul dintre cele mai tari turnee din circuitul de snooker. Englezul e deja indragostit de Romania, a preluat exemplul printului Charles si si-a luat casa … dar in Bucuresti. Asta nu o sa il impiedice sa viziteze Transilvania, zona care i-a trezit interesul. Romania is the second home for Ronnie O’Sullivan. He is here for the third time but this time, it’s an official visit.

Bucurestiul a dat lovitura bine de tot pe plan muzica in vara aceasta. Maroon 5, Queen, Muse, Iron Maiden, Rihanna, Sia si Steve Aoki au cantat pe rand in Piata Constitutiei. Despre Maroon 5 si Muse am scris deja. Urmeaza in top Sia, Steve Aoki si Rihanna. Bucharest was a musical hit this summer. Maroon 5, Queen, Muse, Iron Maiden, Rihanna, Sia and Steve Aoki amazed us in Constitution’s Square. I already wrote about Maroon 5 and Muse. Sia, Steve Aoki and Rihanna are next on my playlist.
