Romanian Restaurant
“Manuc's Inn (Romanian: Hanul lui Manuc, pronounced [ˈhanu(l) luj maˈnuk]) is the oldest operating hotel building in Bucharest, Romania. It also houses a popular restaurant, several bars, a coffee-house, and (facing the street) several stores and an extensive bar. Its massive, multiply balconied courtyard hosted many performances and fairs and was a popular place for Romanian Television crews to shoot folkloric performances. The hotel and restaurant were refurbished in 2007. !!!MOST IMPORTANTLY!!! If you go there to eat , make sure to save some space for my favorite traditional romanian dessert called : “papanasi” Papanași[1] is a Romanian traditional fried or boiled pastry, doughnut shaped with a small sphere on top. They are usually filled with a soft cheese such as urdă. Papanași are served covered in sour cream and with a sour jam topping.”

“One of the reasons why I love this place is for the periodic event that brings back the communist and post communist musical influences. Let's not forget about the uniforms in schools and factories. Let's not forget about the scout troups that Romania was recognised for. ”
