Lunch: Savor the local specialties

After feasting your eyes on the architectural beauties, it's time to indulge your taste buds with the local specialties. You can choose from the many restaurants and taverns that offer traditional Romanian or Saxon dishes, such as bulzul with cheese and cream, sarmalele with polenta and hot peppers, belly soup or goulash with dumplings. If you want to try something lighter, you can opt for a cabbage salad with chicken breast or a vegetable cream soup. For dessert, don't miss the delicious walnut, chocolate or fruit cakes. Some restaurant suggestions are Sergiana, Casa Hirscher, Dei Frati or La Ceaun.
