The Michelin Guide will announce its extended list of restaurants selected from across Hungary on November 3, the Hungarian Tourism Agency (MTÜ) said on Monday.
The prestigious French guide until now only listed eateries in Budapest, the agency said in a statement.
The guide’s inspectors last year returned to Hungary several times incognito to seek out the best restaurants across the country, the agency noted. Hopefully, the National Selection of Hungary Guide “will illustrate the changes Hungarian gastronomy has undergone in the past 10-15 years,” it added.
“Successful domestic and international shows and high-quality ingredients all contributed to putting rural Hungary on the world map of gastronomy,”
the agency said, adding that the national guide was expected to strengthen Hungary’s international appeal as a tourist destination.
