Oscar's Restaurant

Our weekend in Iasi was actually a group event with a lot of people from the embassy.  It was basically a chance to get out of town and relax.  We had a group dinner at Oscar's Restaurant, which had gotten great reviews on Trip Adviser.  I think everyone but Andreas agreed with the reviews.  He was put off by the smoke and that the menu wasn't well organized - a problem he should be used to by now.  Andreas' Greek salad was huge and had eggs, unusually.  My stuffed chicken was also ginormous and very tasty.  It was hot, too, despite our large group.

 I got a side of grilled veggies.  I didn't know the side was going to be large enough to be a meal in itself. They were hot, too, and not too oily.  Andreas had chicken tocana, the typical Moldovan dish.  I think this was part of his reason for dissatisfaction  - he didn't try something different.  Other people had trout and rabbit, two of his favorites, and loved them.  Tocana is just bland.
