Many Hungarian residents enjoy trying and eating different kind of gastronomical delicacies from each part of the country. Not only Hungarian people but many tourists are keen on getting to know the cultural and traditional features of another country’s gastronomy; many of them visit Hungary for only its dining habits. Although the capital is still the first in the category of best restaurants, there are fifty-four other honourable mentions outside Budapest.

The main target for gastro-lovers to try out special traditional Hungarian food is still Budapest but at the same time, almost every restaurant on the countryside develops rapidly every day; slowly reaching the level of the restaurants in the Hungarian capital – reports Hello Vidék. There are several places outside the capital with an extraordinary menu which consists of many traditional meals and special ones as well.

Besides the general traditional Hungarian meals, it is important for every county to emphasise their own gastronomy and to include regional meals on their menus – making them even more spectacular among others.

Taking this point into consideration, it is recommended to try out every county’s speciality, for example, the fish soup in Baja or the meat-pancakes in Hortobágy. According to many experts, the gastro-revolution in Hungary takes place in its counties as the market of the trademarked products in each country are more popular day by day. These products wear trademarks because they are specialised in the counties’ culture and traditions.

These products only contain natural ingredients from the manufacturer county, emphasise the region’s culture and traditions, provide rare and unique Hungarian cultural features and have the best quality in the county.

Gastronomy develops rapidly in Hungary but not just in Budapest. Almost everywhere in the country, restaurants with high standards and exceptional features can be found, and that is why it is highly recommended to conquer Hungarian counties and not just the capital if we are looking for something special to eat. Another major advantage for these restaurants is that they only work with Hungarian ingredients – tasty fruits, vegetables and excellent meats.
