The best romanian street food

Zilele Zalau-lui – the towns anniversary. I haven’t been to this celebration in my hometown for the past 10 years. I remember when I was a kid, I use to come with my friends and walk up and down the streets tens and hundreds of times and we couldn’t get bored of it.

These days it is organized on a much smaller scale, but still can be a relaxing brake out for the locals. I was surprised to see loads and loads of bbq and traditional food all over the place.

I went and tried out some of the street food and captured it in a short video. Enjoy.

Romanian Street Food?

It’s been quite some time since I last wrote something. For the past four weeks, I was pretty much taking time to catch up with family, reconnecting with old friends and get accommodated with my new job.

I have exactly one month since I left the UK and yes I started noticing the differences, things I like and not so much. Probably I’ll write a separate blog about this topic, but another time.

I really missed vlogging, blogging, so I went into the city, Zalau, to explore whether there are any street food in this place or not. Lucky enough there was a traditional food event happening in the city and I was able to take a few shots of it.

You could smell the smoky air from a distance and hear the Romanian folk music. On the first day of the food event they had a traditional dish with beans and sausage and 2nd day fried cabbage with sausage. Pork is like the king of protein in Romania, its present in almost every dish.

You can also find almost at any corner of the street the traditional hungarian / romanian so called cheese pie, which is nothing more but a deep fired dough filled with salty cheese, sour-cream and garlic sauce.

Another street food you will find on the streets in Romanian, in specially around Transylvania is the  Kürtőskalács. This is a sweet bread borrowed from our hungarian fellows. You can have it with different toppings, like sugar, chestnut, coconut and so on.

These are only a few of the street foods I fell into while exploring my hometown, but believe me there are so much more.

A quick heads up about my plans for the next few weeks. I will most probably show you a bit more about Zalau and than I am planning to go on a hunt for the best Christmas market in Romania. This will be a trip into the major cities in Transylvania across 5-7 days.

As always, thank you so much for stepping by. Enjoy!
