It only seemed right that whilst we were in the beautiful city of Budapest, that we should also eat amazing food. Am I right? We didn’t do too much planning ahead and instead used TripAdvisor whilst there as well as did some good old traditional exploring and followed the loose motto ‘if it looks busy, it must be good’.
So a quick list of places you should try if you are staying in the area..
1. Cirkusz
We went for breakfast… twice. Cirkusz has a great selection of light and hearty breakfasts, good coffee and service is top notch. All of the staff spoke perfect English and were really friendly. Prices are also pretty bloody great too.
2. ÉS Bisztró
We stumbled across this place on our first evening in Budapest. It had a great atmosphere, packed with local diners venturing out for a Friday night meal. The menu had a good mix of Hungarian classics and dishes from further afield. The confit goose leg was on the specials menu and my did it deserve to be there. Served with brussel sprouts, red cabbage and potato dumplings, it was the perfect start to our holiday!
3. Gerbeaud
If you’re looking for a warm spot to rest your legs for a moment or two – drowned in delicious, rich hot chocolate, this is the place for you! They have a wide and wonderful selection of cakes and pastries too. I had a milk hot chocolate made with lavender milk which warmed me through and through.
4. Terzo Cherchio
A great Italian restaurant in the Jewish Quarter which had plenty of choice and delicious food. The restaurant was packed when we went so we had to sit downstairs which was just as cosey as upstairs. A great meal and great service.
It seems like the people of Budapest know what they’re doing when it comes to food. They’ve got it all sussed… build a beautiful city that you can walk around and produce soul warming food to get you from one spot to another. Over and out.
