La Taifas

Moldovan in Chişinău

A basement eatery with an understated traditional interior and excellent service, La Taifas is a fine spot to sample authentic Moldovan favourites like plǎcinte (stuffed pastries – order them with brânză, or ewes' milk cheese); zeamă (chicken soup); and Moldova-style steak with mǎmǎligǎ (boiled cornmeal).

A folk ensemble enlivens the atmosphere by night.
