A Tour of Nowadays Bucharest Through Its Delicious Cuisine

Discover Bucharest through its surprising mix of flavours!

What better way to get a taste of a new culture than by exploring the many different hues and aromas that make up its local cuisine?
Old & new, cheap & expensive, traditional & avant-garde - you name it! Bucharest's gastronomical offer has it all. Not to mention the excellent choice of Romanian wines that turn any meal into a small celebration of life.

Give your taste buds an experience to remember while also getting to know the history behind Romania's rich cooking and eating habits.

On this food tour you will:

This tour is by all means flexible and can be tailored to your particular needs or interests.
Drop me a line and I will get back to you in no time with the perfect tour custom-made just for you!


I plan on surprising you with every step of this food tour, therefore I will do my best to first find out your particular interests and tastes in food and then offer you a tailor-made itinerary.
Still I can reveal some of the "traditional" stops on the former tours include a local market, a family-run deli store, a delicious everyday pastry shop, the best coffeehouse in town and local restaurants with typical dishes from all the historical regions of Romania.

The list is long and open to your particular preferences which we should discuss prior to the tour.

As for the sights you are going to visit during our tour - rest assured they will include the most important edifices and squares of modern Bucharest as well as the intricate streets and stories of the Old Town dating back to the Middle Ages.

Got any precise theme you are interested in or a must-see monument? Write me an e-mail and I will get back to you asap with a custom-made tour.
