There is no need to travel to Austria for a plate of great Wiener Schnitzel. Check out these 10 restaurants (6 in Budapest and 4 in the countryside) where they perfected the delicate act of frying a big piece of breaded meat.

Wiener Schnitzel (meaning Viennese cutlet) is a type of schnitzel made of a thin, breaded, pan-fried veal cutlet. A schnitzel is a thin slice of meat fried in fat. It is one of the best-known specialities of Viennese cuisine, and one of the national dishes of Austria and its national food.

Even though it comes from Austria, we kind of consider it our own too. In Hungary, there is rarely a table at lunch on a Sunday without a big bowl of chicken soup and a huge plate of Wiener Schnitzel. Hungarians love all things fried, but a huge slice of chicken breast seems to be their favourite. In Hungary, we do not really use many different types of meat for our Wiener Schnitzel. The most popular choice among Hungarians is chicken, closely followed by pork.

Let’s look at the best places to try Wiener Schnitzel in Hungary.
