This restaurant, Meat Wine Beef, has been open for about a year in the Riscani district of Chisinau. We finally went early last month and had a very good meal. Any meal for Andreas that starts with compote is a good one. He had the meat tray started and I had carpaccio. I think Torro's is better, but this one was also very good. It turns out that Meat Wine Beef is also the home of burger.md, a new delivery service in the city. They deliver burgers - reasonably priced and reasonable tasting burgers. Andreas decided to have one to try it out. My main course was beef in a wine reduction, which was excellent. Andreas enjoyed his burger enough that we went ahead and ordered from the website for lunch a couple of weeks later.

On our way home from Brasov in July, we stopped in Birlad for pizza. We were hungry and the Gradina de vara Paradis looked welcoming. We went in after turning around and finding parking. The place was cool and shady even outside on the terrace on a sunny hot day. The service was very good and the pizza delicious and inexpensive. Andreas had the one strewn with olives. Mine was the one with mushrooms. Neither of us could finish our pizzas, as they were big! We also had some pickles, which were very good too. We liked this place so much that when Andreas picked friends up from Bucharest last month, he stopped here for dinner with them.
