Ciorbărie

Romanian in Bucharest

Image by Monica Suma Lonely Planet

This small eatery runs on a brilliant, simple concept of serving only ciorbă, the trademark sour soup Romanian cuisine is known for. Expect seven or eight different kinds of fresh soup each day, served in generous bowls with quality homemade bread and a spicy green pepper (the way locals eat it). Popular for takeaway orders. Be advised, space is limited.
