I know that you're drooling at the photo below, so let me get down to the business of describing what these tasty-looking fellows are.
They are called papanasi and are a famous Romanian dessert. The dough is mixed with a soft creamy cheese, similar to ricotta. It is then deep-fried, holed in the middle and stuffed with sour cherry marmalade. It is served hot with a side of sour cream, which you can drizzle (or downright pour) on top of these things. It's probably a bazillion calories, but who cares... you gotta live once in a while.
photo gallery, to get an idea. The name of the restaurant means something along the lines: "The horse-drawn carriage full of beer." It's always packed, any day of the week and any time of the day, from early morning till late in the night.
And this is how the end product looks like.
I'd like to add that this blog post covers a very small selection of the amazing Romanian cuisine. It only covers some of the foods we ate while on this trip.
