Before getting to know Moldova women, get to know Moldova culture and customs first!
4 Foods You Must Try in Moldova:
Sarmale (sar-moll-ayy) is a typical Moldovan dish that also appears in many other parts of the world in slightly different varieties. The most common type of sarmale I have encountered in Moldova is cabbage leaves or peppers, stuffed with seasoned rice, mixed with chopped peppers, carrots and a few other vegetables, then baked in oil for a few hours.
Mamaliga (mama-leegah) is the Moldovan equivalent of cornbread – a much wetter cornbread.
Zeama (Zama) is a traditional Moldovan soup made and eaten year-round, usually for lunch.
Placinta (pronounced pla-chin-ta) is everywhere in Moldova. Its impossible to miss; in just about every alimentara (convenience store), it’s the equivalent of a 7-11 hot dog – a cheap on-the-go snack. But that’s just the storebought version; this traditional dish is also a staple in every masa (large celebratory meal) in Moldova.
