Bucharest FoodieBackpacker Dinners



The number of Bucharest people have always been in first 3 in my followers list since I started FoodieBackpacker. That’s why Bucharest was always in my to do list, but visa issues were the reason keeping me back. When I’ve learned that Romania now accepts Schengen Visas, I moved it to the top of the list. The big number of followers did not fool me for sure. As soon as I started boosting a notice that I will be in Bucharest, I got so many people excited about it. People were offering me their kitchens, offering to host me for couple of days, texting me show me around.. Such a good feeling it is. Continue Reading

Cooking for my Favorite Place


Before continuing my posts about my previous tour, I need to make a pause and tell you about my biggest event so far which was last Sunday (August 3rd, 14′)

Best Pizza – La Gatta Mangiona / Rome



2 years ago, I was gonna meet with my ex-girlfriend in Rome and I was searching for where to eat the best pizza and where to eat the best pasta. I trust Turkish gourmet, Vedat Milor‘s advices all by my heart and his spot for pizza in Rome was “La Gatta Mangiona“. Somewhere out of the touristic circle, somewhere that does not even have an English menu… Somewhere with dozens of pizza choices, perfect beers and delicious house wine.

After such a perfect first experience, when I had the chance to travel back to Rome, that place was again on the top of my list.. It is great to see that nothing has changed. Well, now they have Continue Reading
