Trying Romanian Mici for the First Time (Honest Opinion)

Today I explored my neighborhood in Bucarest, Romania and walked 3.5 kilometers. On my way I stopped by a Penny supermarket and picked up a pack of Mici.

By the way, Penny is actually a German supermarket. :)

Close to our Airbnb is a Mega Image, which is a more expensive Romanian supermarket.

Mici is a traditional Romanian sausage.

What is Mici?

Mici, short for “mici mititei,” is a popular Romanian food item that consists of small, grilled sausages typically made from a blend of minced meats, such as beef, pork, and lamb, mixed with spices and seasonings like garlic, paprika, and thyme. The mixture is shaped into small, cylindrical sausages and grilled to perfection. Mici are known for their flavorful and slightly spicy taste. They are often served with condiments like mustard, bread, and fries, making them a beloved street food and a common item at barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings in Romania.

My honest opinion…

Around 6:15 PM local time, I cooked up the mici sausages and tried them out.

In all honesty… I wasn’t that fond of the flavor. :(

I’m certain that ordering Mici from a restaurant anywhere in Romania or especially Bucharest would have given me a much better impression than a “simple” pack from the supermarket.

But alas, I’m trying to watch our spending for now, so maybe some other time!
