World Travel 2013-2014, Romanian Food

Romanian food. What can I say, we didn’t eat out a huge amount (there comes a point even when travelling to new places that you just get sick of eating out) but we did enjoy the food we did try. Romanian food seems to be heavily based in stews and hearty, warming dishes. I’m certainly …
