Other Romanian Goodness
 One of the many massive sandwiches you can get on the street.

Chicken stew with mamaliga (Romanian polenta)

Deep fried dough topped with sour cream and cherries

Vegetable puree

An assortment of Romanian pickles

Spicy roast peppers

White beans - southeastern Europe does white beans like no other.

Bucharest Christmas Market Goodness - Part 2
Various grilled meats

A fairly tough cut of beef. It's called bastirma in Romania.

The finished product. Chopped into little pieces to make it easier to chew.

Bucharest Christmas Market Goodness - Part 1
Sausage, pork fat, and cheese

Ostensibly a smoked pig surrouned by smoked meat poetry

Cabbage rolls, grilled sausage, and kefta with a tangy mustard

These smell like roasted marshamallows but are some sort of dough dipped in sugar

A variety of cakes

Possibly the World's Best Breakfast

Olives, cream, honey, eggs, tomatoes, sausage, cheese, fresh veggies, crusty bread, and tea. Only in Istanbul can you get a spread like this daily.

On the Street in Phnom Penh - Part Two

Meat - presumably pork - with rice and broth that tasted like liver.

Pork and pineapple with rice.

Vietnamese Pho (noodles) with prawns. Delicious!
