Notes: Walking down High Rd Leytonstone is a succession of restaurants and corner shops proudly displaying east European flags and products.
Like entering a time machine, from the very first moment you step into this little traditional Romanian restaurant, you feel like being transported 30 years back in time: red carpet, white tablecloth, decent and honest decor and a friendly, attentive service. Classic Romanian 80s tunes to complete the picture.
A variety of simple, generous portions of traditional dishes from sausages and breadcrumbed cheese to polenta and stuffed cabbages, from stew and potatoes to the super rich cream and jam covered doughnuts, are big enough to satisfy every appetite.
Expect a free shot of Palincă, religiously before dinner.
