Fantastic seafood street food place on Buda side!
Bubba’s Water Grill in Budapest is a small street food joint and it is all about seafood. Located right at Déli train station it is not a regular place you pass as a tourist however many people commuting to Budapest probably pass it daily. The area is full of abandoned little shops with Bubba’s water grill as one of the only ones being in use.
The location itself is great for commuters running through Déli every day however it is hard to convince yourself to go out to Bubba’s Water Grill in Budapest if you are coming from the other side of the city. But no worries a new location is already planned near Corvin Sétány on Pest side. Due to the fact that the location has no windows, it is rather something for newspaper stands or a little convenient store, the air inside the place itself is nearly unbearable as it smells of fat from the deep fryer. Enough of the negative side, Bubba’s Water grill has places to sit outside, the food is really great here and if you want to eat fresh seafood it is one of the best place I have been to in Budapest so far, apart from the fish market in Budaörs and thebigfish in downtown belonging to the fish market.
On the menu you can find several seafood dishes which are either grilled or battered and fried. From whole fishes such as a mackerel (which I had and it was very tasty) over slices of salmon, shrimps on a spit to the good old fish and chips you get a wide selection of great prepared and very tasty options. As side dishes there are Bubba chips, which are basically regular chips shaped a bit different, salads and 8 different dips you can chose from.
All in all if you are not searching for a candle light dinner spot I do strongly recommend Bubba’s Water Grill in Budapest if you want to eat good and fresh seafood paired with friendly staff for a superb value. By the way I am not the only one who thinks like this, on Facebook they got 4,5 out of 5 stars, Foursquare 8,4 out of 10 and Tripadvisor 4,5 out of 5 as well.
