Sergiana, Transylvania

January 1, 2020

Encircled by the Carpathian Mountains, Romania's Transylvanian city of Brasov is a beauty of baroque buildings and cobbled courtyards, with intriguingly atmospheric restaurants like Sergiana, which serves traditional Transylvanian specialities such as pork pot roast with chicken liver, smoked sausages, egg, cottage cheese and polenta, as well as sour soups of gammon and tarragon, with sinful platefuls of deep-fried crunchy pork lard and crusty bread to be downed with Bran Palinca prune brandy and Ursus draught beer.
