This was another of my favourite places! A little place on Str. Balcescu, selling gogosi (pronounced “goggosh”), which are basically hot doughnuts with a filling – I must admit I usually went for the chocolate, but they also did apricot, strawberry, jam, and it’s also possible to have savoury fillings though I don’t remember this lot doing them. Fortunately it was so hot that I couldn’t cope with them most days – in the winter I suspect I would have had at least one a day 🙂 The left hand window was where you placed your order and paid – I think the guy in the photo just got in front of me!

The other things they sold which I liked were covrigi (pronounced “covreej” – hard “j”) – which are salted bread, basically pretzels. Mmmmm.

    They were stunning. Funnily enough I really really don’t like British doughnuts, and I’m not at all sure what the difference is. Maybe gogosi were less sugary or something.
