A couple of years ago, quickly done but delicious foods appeared in Budapest’s streets. Since then, one can buy them even at restaurants. Funzine.hu collected the best places and here is the first part of it.
Vágódeszka (Chopping board)
This restaurant lies in the heart of the city and sausages dominate its menu. Traditional recipes are used in a modern and creative way, and visitors fall in love with the specialities at first bite. If you are near Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Street, go to Vágódeszka and try Robuci. It is a wonderful pair of homemade lecsó omelettes and a sausage you can choose. Furthermore, we also recommend Merguez that is made of 50% beef and 50% lamb. Additionally, it has curry, chilli, and cinnamon to make the taste even more delicious. People who like fast food will definitely like this place. Give it a try and enjoy the traditional Hungarian foods with a modern twist.
This is a busy restaurant near Kálvin Square and Astoria. It is a good choice for vegetarian people as well, and all those who want to have a diverse diet. There are tasty hamburgers, sugar-free desserts, sandwiches, fresh juices and smoothies. We recommend Gandaburi if you want to try a gluten-free, vegan burger. The banana-date cake is one of the best desserts that are also gluten-free. VegaCity is open from 7 AM until 9 PM. Additionally, after you finished your meal, you can grab some healthy ingredients for your dinner right next to the restaurant, at the Bio ABC or Vitamin ABC.
‘Grab and go foods’ also include desserts and Waffle Dog found a special way to make them. The owners got their inspiration during their visit to the Benelux Union. That was the time when they decided to bring their waffle wonders to Hungary. Fantastic looking delicacies that taste even more fantastic are packed with all kinds of goodies you can image, for example, homemade vanilla creme, Hershey chocolate sauce, jam, fruits, túró rudi (Hungarian dessert made of sweetened cottage cheese in a chocolate “fur”), and high-quality sweets. There are also Dutch pancakes made freshly right away in a few minutes.
It is the little sibling of KicsiZso (‘Kicsi’ means small, ‘Mini’ is even smaller). It is awaiting street food fanatics with gourmet bagels from 7:30 AM until 5 PM on weekdays. The restaurant in Buda offers bagels with salmon, chorizo (Spanish sausage), or ham. All you need to do is telling your dream bagel to the chef who will make it for you. There are also soups, coffee, and desserts. Furthermore, cold beers and fresh juices help you appease your thirst. The charming MiniZso on Hattyú Street is a true pearl of the Hungarian street food industry.
Captain Bubba made it again – he opened a new restaurant at Egyetem Square recently. There are about 80 meals on the menu: crab, scallop, squids, whole fish and fish without fishbone. You can find the widest variety of Fish&Chips in Budapest here, not to mention the Beef Burger specialities. For those who love seafood, this is Heaven, but even those can eat here who do not like seafood. There are delicious desserts, filling breakfasts, bottles and draft beers, smoothies, and high-quality wines.
Bors GastroBár (Black Pepper GastroBar)
If we had to name the restaurants serving the best soups, Bors GastroBár would definitely be in the TOP 3. This place makes its fan club happy with specialities from time to time. One of their latest creations is Sancho, that is a seasoned, Mexican bagel. Among the salty soups, they also offer many sweet ones that were inspired by delicious desserts. On the constantly changing menu, there already have been soups such as the strawberry cheesecake, the Bounty, and the Hungarian trüffel cake soup. There is only one thing that is even better than the soups, and that is the utterly friendly staff.
Wan Hao Restaurant
Wan Hao Restaurant that lies in the heart of the Chinese district offers delicious and also healthy Chinese and Cantonese meals. Did you know that they even have street food on their menu? Thanks to the Cantonese dim sum, you can enjoy the testy Baozi and Jiaozi. If you want to grab an easy hot meal to go, rice pasta is for you. There is a wide range of low-fat and vegetarian meals in this restaurant. Wan Hao invites you for a culinary trip where you do not even have to give up your diet. Furthermore, they have a 10% discount for Funzine readers, all year long.
