Budapest offers many culinary sensations: from affordable meals to the highest echelon of Michelin-star experiences, there is a place to satisfy everyone’s hunger. However, at times, we crave more than just tasty bites of food. If you are in the mood to quench your thirst for culture while having a meal, visit the following places.
Púder is a hot spot for many young people living in Budapest, and for good reason. This cosy restaurant not only has delicious food but also hosts wonderful events such as live music and dance performances, theatre shows, literary gatherings, and even art exhibitions. Reflecting the ever-improving events, the interior decor of Púder will captivate you with statues and paintings made by a young artist named Zsili Bertalan Babos. He described his art to Kunszt with the following words: “My goal is to prevent the boredom of human sight; I want to encourage my viewers to think, to speak, and even write stories thanks to my work.” Visit Púder’s website here to find out what events will be hosted.
