Mid September – still summer temperatures and sunny in Sibiu, still plenty of tourists taking photos of our medieval old town, still the main squares of the city bustling with concerts, outdoor events and a big crowd. And somewhere on the Mitropoliei Street, right next to the Big Square (Piata Mare), at Jules Bistro, in their summer garden, a handful of well known Romanian chefs from all over the country get together for 3 full days to bring gastronomy to a next level.
We’ve been living in Sibiu for quite some years now and we have constantly been in search of true taste. Sometimes it’s hard to find it, especially when you visit the city for just a few days, so here’s the complete guide to how and where to get your food – restaurants, bars, pubs, juice bars, markets – all already carefully tested.
I’ve been planning for quite a while now to also start writing about places we normally go out to eat or drink in Sibiu, because we are always hunting for new places, but places that locals like, not the touristic tasteless and flavorless ones. So here we are, I hope this is the first from a long series.
I was very happy to hear that we FINALLY have in Sibiu a raw-vegan restaurant. It just opened about 3 weeks ago and it’s called Copacul Vietii (The Tree of Life).
