You know that fat kid inside yourself that makes you stare into the other’s person plate and gets you eating french fries at midnight and more than two pancakes in a row?
Well, that little chunky bastard just had me eating two carrot cakes the other day, from the BioBucovina Pastry shop in the heart of Piata Amzei (at the junction cross between Mendeleev and Tache Ionescu). I was walking by it quite in a hurry when the corner of my eye caught their window display and I paused abrubtely. Big, fluffy orangy triangles covered in sugar powder, with the tag : Carrot and orange pie. And it was only 4 lei. All I can say it was better than the one at Starbucks and that means something.
I liked it so bad that yesterday night I left my car in Amzei to go there today as an excuse and get another carrot cake! (well, that and having more than one glass of wine the night before). The little shop was open but they didn’t have the cake, maybe because it was Sunday and all, instead I got me a sweet cheese pie. That was just as yum and next time I’m getting pumpkin pie or “Poale ‘n brau”(some sweet specialty from Bucovina).
Enough said, if you’re passing by BioBucovina get something, go ahead, feed your fat kid, we won’t judge!
(sorry about the bitten cake in the photo but I couldn’t help it…)
