Samsara Foodhouse

Those feeling disoriented by meat-heavy Transylvanian cuisine will find refuge at Samsara, a restaurant that caters to vegetarian and vegan eaters, and yet still hugely appeals to those with no dietary restrictions. Healthy foods and green smoothies must be followed by decadent desserts.


Cluj-Napoca's dining scene is as varied and diverse as the city's cultural heritage - it features eateries specializing in Transylvanian, greater Romanian, Hungarian, and other world cuisines, down to relatively recent imports such as steakhouses and sushi bars. Some local specialties include different varieties of "ciorba" (soups), meats (sausages especially), and "mamaliga" (known as "polenta" elsewhere in the world) that often comes as a side.
