The Visit

I had wanted to visit their first store for a while, but I was never really in the area.

When I saw they were opening up along from where I work I thought woohoo I cant wait to check it out.

Romania was a big part of my life in the last few years, and I still have many Romanian friends so I had to check it out and let them know how it was.

The Goodies

I didn’t feel like getting proper food today, so it was a mix of sweets etc.

Dracula Chocolate cake £4
Dracula loves his chocolate, so we bring you the best 3 layers of chocolate cake in Town

I thought lets try a cake, and chocolate is the must have for me so I opted for this Dracula Chocolate cake.

This was very sweet and had a lovely texture.

From my time in Romania I know they add rum? into the cakes but a specific kind which I am not a big fan off…but this was very subtle and added to the flavour.

As you probably guessed it was completely finished.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Prajitura cu crema de lapte 35g Magura

The only word I knew was Lapte which translates to milk…so I guessed it was like a creamy chocolate bar….I was right.

I took a bite into this and ohhh very nice, sweet and soft.

If you like cake bars over here you will enjoy this…this is one I will be getting again.

Burn Energy drink

I spotted this on their Instagram and thought ohh I need to try this out.

When I visited Romania I never really looked for energy drinks, so this would be something new for mew to try.

I had this with my lunch and here is what I thought.

This was very tasty, I cant pinpoint what the flavour is but its a nice subtle flavour…and very easy to drink.

For me this was REALLY good and I can see myself buying this many times when I need a wee boost.

Iced caramel Latte

We all need a wee coffee in the morning to get our engines going, and today I opted for an iced latte with some caramel.

Since the weather was still warm this was a perfect start to the day, something cool and coffee to get me going.

This was very nice, it was a nice strong cold coffee with a nice subtle caramel flavour.

I can see me getting this again when I know I have a busy day at work.

Overall :

Being inside here brought back so many lovely memories I had of Romania, all the happy times.

Everything I got today was really good, next time I will try their food.

If your in the area do check them out.
