Edgware’s Casa Bucovineana brings Romanian culinary culture to London. Transforming their quaint Edgware High Street premises into a passable simulation of a Romanian restaurant and inn – complete with piano for traditional sing-a-longs – Casa Bucovineana bring the best of the eastern nation of Romania to northwest London. Casa Bucovineana offers a wide range of Romanian dishes and delicacies, and can cater for large events and parties with two levels, each capable of accommodating up to sixty people enjoying a customised menu.
As you stroll down Edgware’s High Street, there’s a point where you suddenly think you’ve been transported to another century. After Lidl and Classy Junction, and before the hand car wash, sits an archaic, two-storey whitewashed building, with a low, dark red slated roof set between two gables. This unassuming but curious landmark is where some of London’s best Romanian cuisine is to be found. This is Casa Bucovineana, a Romanian restaurant par excellence.
Casa Bucovineana is open every day of the week for all-day and evening dining. On the weekends, it’s open until 1am, letting you really relax into the restaurant’s rustic interior, a world away from Edgware’s High Street outside. The menu is packed with traditional Romanian dishes like ciorba de burta, sarmale, mamaliga, and tochitura moldoveneasca. Pair these with fine Romanian wines (many from the town of Murfatlar), plus authentic Romanian music, and you have a complete experience to savor. Casa Bucovineana is a rare find in London.
