February Sibiu Getaway

RO:

Pentru ca februarie este luna zilei mele de nastere, m-am gandit sa incep seria cadourilor mai devreme si sa plec cateva zile intr-un oras de care nu ma pot satura, descoperind ceva nou de fiecare data cand ajung acolo. Dupa cum ati vazut si in numele articolului, personajul principal este Sibiul. Fara alte introduceri, haideti sa povestim putin.

As February is my birthday month, I thought I should give myself an early gift and spend a few days in a town I can’t get enough of and where I always find something new. As you can see from the title, the main character is Sibiu. Without any other introductions, let’s storytell. 🙂

Ziua 1

Dat fiind faptul ca am ajuns la ora 2 in Sibiu, prima oprire am facut-o la un mic local numit Syndicat Gourmet pentru a incerca renumita lor supa curry de praz cu taitei crocanti. Gustul a fost pe masura numelui si a asteptarilor, daca va place sa experimentati in bucatarie cu diferite condimente, merita sa va opriti aici pentru o supa calda. De asemenea, locatia e una foarte interesanta, pastrand detalii din constructia initiala a casei, o adevarata poveste vizuala.

Dupa masa, am ales sa facem o plimbare prin bine-cunoscutele piete ale Sibiului. Am avut noroc sa avem parte de o vreme superba, soarele scotand in evidenta arhitectura minunata a orasului.

Spre seara am facut o plimbare catre marginea orasului, alegand sa luam cina la un grillhouse deschis destul de curand, specializat pe preparate facute la gratar. Jacob Grillhouse e situat fix la marginea Padurii Dumbrava, la intrarea dinspre Gradina Zoologica. Designul locatiei iti permitea sa vezi direct in padure, iar atmosfera din interior era calda si primitoare. Mi-au placut foarte mult decoratiunile realizate din trunchiuri de copaci si semineul din mijlocul localului, dand impresia ca esti intr-o cabana la munte. Cat despre mancare, pot sa va spun ca am mancat unul dintre cei mai buni burgeri de pana acum acolo, iar sosul barbeque este bestial.

Day 1

Regarding the fact we arrived at 2, first stop was a small restaurant called Syndicat Gourmet to taste the famous curried Leek Soup with Crunchy Noodles. The taste was amazing, if you like to mix different spices in the kitchen, you should definitely stop and try this soup. Moreover, the location was very interesting as the owners kept the main construction details, a real visual story.

After lunch, we walked along the Sibiu’s  well-known main squares. The weather was really nice, the sun showed off the great architecture of the town.

In the evening, we made a walk to the edge of the town, as we chose to eat at a recently opened grill house. Jacob Grillhouse  it’s situated near the Dumbrava forest, at the Zoo entrance. The design of the location allowed you to look exactly into the woods and the atmosphere was really warm and welcoming. I liked very much the wood decorations and the fireplace as it gave you the impression you were in a mountain chalet. About the food, I can tell you that I ate there one of the best burgers so far and the BBQ sauce it’s just yummy.

Ziua 2

Avand in vedere ca nu am putut rezista noilor sortimente propuse de Donuterie, mi-am inceput ziua cu cateva gogosi de acolo. De asemenea, pentru o cafea buna si la doi pasi de Donuterie, gasiti Hug in a mug.

In timp ce dadeam turul orasului am trecut pe langa Biserica Evanghelica si mi-am dat seama ca nu m-am urcat niciodata in turn pana atunci, asa ca m-am gandit de ce sa nu o fac acum. Cu siguranta cea mai buna alegere a zilei. Privelistea de sus era uimitoarea, panorama orasului  era completata perfect de lantul montan de pe fundal. Turnul are 73 de metri inaltime si pentru a ajunge la cel mai inalt nivel trebuia sa urci o serie de scari destul de abrupte, dar  va promit eu ca merita.

Tip: nu te uita in jos cand urci :))

Inca o parte a orasului pe care nu o mai vizitasem inainte si care merita o privire au fost zidurile cetatii Simlic din partea de Sud a orasului. Situate oarecum la marginea centrului vechi, pe strada Cetatii – considerata cea mai frumoasa strada din Sibiu, constituie un coltisor plin de istorie ce este perfect pentru cateva momente de relaxare.

Dupa inca cateva ore de cutreierat, am incheiat ziua cu o masa la Hochmaister. Daca ar fi fost dupa mine mi-as fi luat din toate felurile de mancare cate o portie, atat de bine sunau. In final am ales Chili con carne, una dintre specialitatile casei si sufleul de ciocolata. Delicios, atat pot spune. Daca ajungeti in Sibiu, va recomand o masa acolo, mai ales cina deoarece atmosfera e wow.

Day 2

Because I couldn’t resist the new donut assortments from  Donuterie, I started my day there. Also, if you are into coffee, a few stores away it’s a really nice place called Hug in a mug.

While I was walking, I passed The Lutheran Cathedral and I realized I never climbed at the top of its tower, so I thought why wouldn’t I do it now. Totally the best choice of the day. The view up there was breathtaking, the panorama of the city was completed in the background by the mountain chain. The tower has 73 meters and you have to climb some craggy steps, but I promise you it’s really worth it.

Tip: don’t look down :))

Another part  I didn’t see before was the walls of Simlic citadel from the south part of the city. Situated at the edge of the old town center, on the Cetatii street – considered the most beautiful street in Sibiu, is an important historical corner perfect for some quite moments.

After a few hours of walking around, we ended the day taking lunch at Hochmaister. If it was after me I would have ordered a portion of everything, it sounded that good. Finally, I decided on Chili con carne and a chocolate souffle. I could say one word only…delicious. So, if you go to Sibiu it’s a must you have a dinner there, the staff it’s very friendly and the atmosphere it’s wow.

Ziua 3

Cum am plecat la ora 3 nu am mai avut asa mult timp de vizitat a treia zi, dar nu vreau sa uit sa va spun despre un local care a picat perfect inainte sa ma intorc acasa. The Refresh este un coffee shop situat la marginea Pietei Mari, cum am vazut doar in Venetia pana acum. Mi-am comandat un yogurt mix cu nuci, miere si brownie. A fost divin. De asemenea, au o gama larga de cafea si diferite combinatii foarte interesante.

Tip: pe langa yogurt mixul minunat, incearca si brownie latte

Day 3

As I left at 3 o’clock we didn’t have so much time to visit in the third day, but I don’t want to forget about a place that was perfect before I left. The Refresh it’s a coffee shop situated at the edge of the main plaza, as I have seen only in Venice so far. I ordered a yogurt mix with nuts, honey and brownie. It was divine. They also have a great variety of coffee and different interesting mixes.

Tip: besides the great yogurt mix, try also the brownie latte
