L'avis de Gault&Millau
Chef: Petru Sorin CUCU Walls stripped bare and brightly colored elements, traditional tapestries, wooden tables and modern plastic chairs, everything surprisingly makes sense at Mahala, a restaurant popular among the connected youth for the way it combines the old and the new – not only design-wise, but also in the menu. This is the place to discover traditional Romanian dishes in a contemporary interpretation, using forgotten ingredients, especially in urban kitchens. Millet, pumpkin flowers, sweetbreads or stinging nettles are elevated by the modern techniques and the association with top quality ingredients. Suffice to say that the most popular dessert on the menu is coliva, present otherwise only in religious ceremonies.
