Madam Wong

Madam Wong is a fantastic find for lovers of Asian cuisine, "Asian" in the broadest of terms, ranging from Japanese to Indian, via China, Vietnam and a few other culinary traditions. Prices are staggeringly low for the quality and assortment.


Moldovan cuisine is largely made up of hearty staples like meat, potatoes and grains. It shows trace of Romanian, Russian and Turkish influence, and significant variation is present even within the relatively compact country itself, with ethnic minorities (the Gagauz, Ukrainians and Bessarabian Bulgarians) having their own characteristic specialities. Mamaliga (a variation if polenta) is a ubiquitous Moldovan staple which often constitutes the base of a meal - have it with pork or beef, and wash it all down with fine wines from nearby wineries.
