Mealtime Monday: Papanasi are Sweet Treats


I traveled around Romania for five weeks, turning up my nose at a menu item I kept seeing poorly described in English- “cream cheese doughnuts”.  Three days before my departure I found myself sitting in a restaurant, looking at the most amazing dessert ever passing by.  What was it?  “Cream cheese doughnuts.”  FML.

These “cream cheese doughnuts”- known as “papanasi” in Romanian, were devoured at La Mama in Bucharest.  I ate more papanasi.  I ate all the papanasi.
