Bucharest, My Home, Romania


Post available in English and Romanian
O data pe an, orasul meu se umple de lumina si ofera imagini spectaculoase. Edilii orasului incearca sa compenseze cumva pentru multele probleme de care ne lovim. Pun o masca deasupra orasului si matura mizeria sub covor. Tactica frunctioneaza si cel putin o data pe an vedem Bucurestiul intr-o lumina diferita. Luminitele se vor stinge in curand, asa ca e pacat sa nu le vedeti si voi. Once a year, my hometown lights up and shines offering spectacular views. The town officials try to compensate for the many issues we are facing by putting on a mask and dusting the dirt under the rug. The thing is … this really works and each year we see this town in a better light (pun intended). So let me guide you through Bucharest before the pretty lights turn off.

Pentru mine mancarea este una dinte micile placeri ale vietii si intotdeauna ma bucur atunci cand gasesc in Bucuresti un loc special, care ma face sa imi doresc sa revin din nou si din nou ca sa incerc gusturi speciale. E fix ceea ce mi s-a intamplat cu Paine si Vin. Food has always been one of life’s small pleasures for me, this is why I am always happy when I discover great places in Bucharest, making me want to go back again and again for a delicious bite. Here’s my recent experience at Paine si vin.

Incet-incet descopar ca imi place foarte mult sa va scriu despre … mancare. Asta si pentru ca sunt gurmanda de cand ma stiu. Cu greu ma convingea mama in copilarie sa nu mananc toata ciocolata intr-o singura zi si sa pastrez si pentru restul saptamanii. Principiul e simplu: “Traieste clipa”. Ma bucur pe moment de ce am si daca nu imi ramane si pentru mai tarziu … pai atunci asta e. Macar am fost fericita mai devreme.

Sa trecem deci, la fapte. Saptamana trecuta mi-am delectat papilele gustative la Trattoria Buongiorno (de pe Lascar Catargiu).

Am incercat Ravioli rosso con Buratta in traducere libera: Ravioli proaspete, muguri de pin, smântână dulce, parmezan. Buuunnnn rau de tot, iar sosul de smantana a fost perfect, nu a ingreunat deloc preparatul.

I’m just realizing that I love to write for you about … food. It’s because I’ve been a food lover since I can remember. In my childhood, my mom could barely get me to save a piece of chocolate for the next day. It’s really easy actually: I prefer to live in the moment and enjoy what I have now. If I don’t save some for later … it’s not a loss. At least I was happy while it lasted.

Let’s get down to business. Last week I’ve delighted myself with some delicious food at Trattoria Buongiorno (located on Lascar Catargiu Street).

We’ve tried Ravioli Rosso con Burrata: Fresh ravioli, pine nuts, cream, parmesan. Reallyyyyy tasty. The cream sauce was just right, not heavy at all, just a delight with the rest of the ingredients.
