Pur Pur and Park

01-pur pur menu

Pur Pur menu. Although the presentation is quirky and makes an impression, it’s really hard to read.

02-pur pur menu

The prices are pretty standard.

03-pur pur tea

Tea.

04-pur pur caesar

Caesar salad which you shouldn’t order. I’m a bit predictable in my old age, and nearly always order a Caesar salad wherever I go. This is a variation that should be avoided.

05-pur pur bruschete

Bruschette. You shouldn’t order these either.

06-pur pur cheesecake

Cheesecake. Now, cheesecake purists would argue that this isn’t a cheesecake at all, and with this I agree. It’s more of a cottage cheese tart. However, it was surprisingly tasty, if a bit too sweet. If I ever find myself at Pur Pur again, this is what I would order.

The reason we found ourselves at Pur Pur to begin with is because the terrace has several tables that allow smoking. With recent laws such places have become a rarity in the city.

I can recommend this for convenience (the aforementioned smoking and the location – the very centre of Kishinev) and for the cheesecake, but I cannot recommend it for anything else. The price range, although decent, seemed a bit high for the place of its caliber. The kitchen wasn’t good. The location, although convenient and theoretically safe, seemed a bit seedy.
