Terasa Obor (the Obor terrace) is one of those places you wouldn’t normally go to, because, most probably you wouldn’t know about it. However, it is the best places in town to have ‘mici’ not only for it’s long tradition in preparing and serving this delicious bites, but also for the idyllic atmosphere and the authentic character of this place, nicely showcased in this mini documentary video.
Conveniently located close to the Obor Market (the biggest market in Bucharest), Terasa Obor is locals’ first choice to grab a bite and a pint on a Sunday morning. There is traditional music, beer and lots of dear memories veterans would happily share with you if you have time to listen to their stories and you do… while waiting for the ‘mititei’ to sizzle.
These ‘Mititei’ or ‘mici’ as called sometimes are grilled ground meat rolls made from a mixture of beef, lamb and pork meat spiced up with garlic, black pepper, thyme, coriander, anise, savory, and sometimes a touch of paprika. They are very flavorful and smell incredibly good while grilling. Usually served with mustard sauce and fries as side dish, these little yummies are the stars of Romanian street food and the main dish served on national days.
