Trófea Grill Restaurant

Das Trófea Grill Restaurant in Budapest ist eine Top Adresse speziell wenn es um all-you-can-eat geht. Frisch zubereitetes Fleisch, eine große Auswahl an Beilagen sowie Vor- und Nachspeisen soweit das Auge reicht. Das Konzept ist relativ einfach: Für ca. 6.000 Forint kann in der Mittags- bzw. Abendessenszeit soviel gegessen werden wie man möchte bzw. kann. Ein klassisches All-you-can-eat Angebot, allerdings mit einer gewaltigen Auswahl an fertigen und noch zu machenden Gerichten. Das Herzstück ist sicherlich die Auswahl an verschiedenen Fleischsorten (keine Sorge es gibt auch Fisch) wie Hühnchen, Schwein und auch gute Stücke vom Rind, letzteres aber nur in geringer Stückzahl also früh kommen. Auch Gemüse und Shrimps können gewählt werden. Man nimmt sich also einen Teller, füllt ihn mit dem Fleisch was man gerne möchte und übergibt es dem Grillmeister der es dann vor den eigenen Augen brät so wie man es gerne hätte. Neben der Auswahl an Grillfleisch gibt es natürlich noch viele weitere Gerichte die größtenteils ungarisch sind wie zum Beispiel Pörkölt, gefülltes Kraut oder die ganz…

trofea

Trófea Grill Restaurant

Trófea is an all you can eat restaurant chain all over the city including currently 6 restaurants. Mainly being a grill or barbeque restaurant in Trófea you can choose the meat yourself out of the fridge and give it to the grill master who then freshly prepares it for you in front of your eyes. But that is not all, you also get fresh salads, grilled vegetables or fish, other dishes such as stews and of course a large variety of side dishes and desserts. In a nutshell that is it but the variety of food is just endless with mainly typical Hungarian dishes such as soups, pickles or stews but you can also have BBQ chicken wings or other dishes from all over the world. The heart obviously is the grill where you pick your meat and it is being grilled freshly for you. Sometimes if you get in early and are lucky you might even catch some nice steak or shrimps and not only chicken and pork meat….

vakvarju

Die VakVarjú Restaurants

Das Restaurant VakVarjú in Budapest, bzw eher die 4 Restaurants, ist meines Erachtens nach eine der besten Anlaufstellen für gutes Essen zu fairen Preisen. Ein international ausgerichtetes Konzept mit Speisen die exzellent schmecken und auch satt machen. Das alles sogar mitten in der Innenstadt wo Preise normalerweise überdurchschnittlich sind. Auch das VakVarjú ist sicherlich nicht die billigste Adresse in der Stadt aber für die Leistung absolut vertretbar. Im VakVarjú in Budapest gibt es von Suppen und Vorspeisen über deftige Hauptgerichte sowie leichte Köstlichkeiten und Nachtisch alles was das Herz begehrt und der Magen mag. Hier können Sie typisch ungarische Gerichte ausprobieren wie zum Beispiel die Gänseleber aber auch guten Lachs mit Salat haben. Die Auswahl ist ausreichend, aber nicht unübersichtlich. Ein paar Worte noch zum Restaurant an sich, es ist stilvoll eingerichtet mit kleinen Feinheiten an allen Ecken und Enden. Service und Personal ist schnell und hilfsbereit, also gibt es auch von dieser Seite nichts zu meckern. Ein rundum gelungenes Restaurant für ein leckeres Abendessen. Restaurant VakVarjú Information: Wie gesagt…

Zeller-bistro

Restaurant Zeller Bistro

Das Zeller Bistro ist derzeit neben dem Chez Daniel das beste Restaurant in Budapest. Es ist das Gesamtkonzept was stimmt und den Besuchern einen perfekten und runden Abend beschert. Egal ob mit Kindern oder romantisch zu zweit das Zeller schafft es jeden so zu bedienen wie es gewünscht wird. Die Karte ist übersichtlich aber doch ausreichend um viele Geschmäcker zu treffen ohne die Gäste vor die Qual der Wahl zu stellen. Hinzu kommt die Qualität der Produkte die frisch vom Markt kommen, teilweise sogar aus eigener Produktion bzw Anbau der Familie. Das alles verbunden mit einem guten Koch bringt ein fantastische Essen auf den Tisch. Doch das alleine ist nicht ausschlaggebend um das Zeller Bistro in Budapest zu einer Topadresse zu machen, es ist vor allen Dinge auch der Service der weit über ungarischen Standards ist. Freundlich, zuvorkommend und auch eine persönliche Note machen den Besuch unvergessen. Zudem wird hier auf Kinder geachtet mit diversen Spielzeugen und Malsachen die die Kinder bei Laune halten was sowhl den Eltern als auch…

Zeller-bistro

Zeller Bistro

Zeller Bistro is the top rated restaurant in Budapest according to TripAdvisor (what effect that has I will discuss later in the article) so I thought I will give it a try. Located in Izabella utca (Between Oktogon and Heroes’ Square) in the 7th district Zeller is not too far off the track and can be reached easily from the city center. The little family run restaurant is situated in the cellar of a normal apartment house and offers a refreshing, modernized Hungarian menu. Away from Goulash Soup and Pörkölt Zeller is driving more in a modern direction using fresh products from the market and traditional dishes with a drift to exotic ingredients. The menu is really straight forward and not longer than a page so you do not get lost in the mass of choices but in the same time there is something for everybody from fish to duck and vegetarian to soups. Few starters a choice of a dozen main courses and 3 desserts that’s what you have…

mrestaurant

M Restaurant Budapest

M Restaurant in Budapest is a small but very stylish eatery near Oktogon in downtown with a small but wisely chosen menu of excellent food. Passing by the location M restaurant would not really catch your eye and even if you would recognize it from outside it rather looks like a little, cheap bar with a few tables and chairs. There are more tables upstairs which you cannot really see from outside so in total M can hold something like 30 people and it would be packed. This all sounds not too interesting but once you check the menu which you can have a look into outside your mouth will be watering and you might take the step inside. The restaurant itself reminds me a lot of the very famous Ruin Bars in Budapest with simplistic decoration, paper table covers with a stamp on which you can paint on and little interior highlights here and there. Nevertheless M Restaurant in Budapest is a very comfortable and stylish place to have…

sunny-budapest

Sunny Lounge Budapest

Sunny Lounge in Budapest is a small restaurant located in the North of Budapest, in Óbuda, right next to the main road leading you towards Szentendre. On their Facebook page they describe their style very divers saying that the kitchen is American, Italian, Thai which is true so you can find burgers on the menau as well as pizza and Thai dishes. Also in the corner of the restaurant there is a Sushi bar which seems to be unused or at least during the lunch time when I have visited Sunny it was closed. For me that is a bit too much of a mixture but what I have ordered was really nice. As a starter there was a Tom Yam, a spicy Soup originated in Laos and Thailand followed by grilled vegetables with roasted goat cheese which actually has been a starter but I ate it as a main course. As said it all tasted very nice but to be honest Sunny in Budapest is quite overpriced. A main…

pastrami

Pastrami Budapest

About Pastrami At first I thought that Pastrami in Budapest would be a copy cat of the successful Italian restaurant Vapiano in Budapest as the pictures looked very similar. With its central, very open kitchen and a lot of little bits and bobs stading and handing around, the menu written up in large above the kitchen it just felt like Vapiano, going to the counter where the chef takes you order, cooks a fresh pasta and off you go to your seat. But enough of that comparison because restaurant Pastrami turned out to be a regular but fantastic restaurant including waiters, a proper menu and without self service but all in a very modern and good atmosphere. ← → x × Previous Next

melba

Restaurant Melba Marina Part

The restaurant Melba in Budapest is located on the so called Marina Part, which is a newly built area in the 13th district right next to the Danube. Restaurant Melba is offering a wide variety of internation and traditional Hungarian dishes on a above average price level but thats what you have to pay sitting right on the Danube enjoying your lunch or dinner. The so called Marina Part is an area of newly built houses with masses of apartments and offices and in these places usually a restaurant is not missing. But the restaurant Melba is located on the, fairly small, port of that area. The food in restaurant Melba is very good and the staff really friendly. You can get here international as well as traditional dishes, so from a NY Rib Eye Steak down to the all Hungarian Gulash Soup you can find everything here. The restaurant is really nice with a large area to sit outside in the sun enjoying your lunch or dinner and also…

restaurant-robinson

Restaurant Robinson

Recently I have been to Restaurant Robinson in Budapest which has probably one of the coolest location of all restaurants in Budapest. Built on the lake in the city park Robinson offers a super romantic atmosphere with a nice view on the city park itself which especially in summer time is really nice while sitting outside on the terrace with a glass of wine and a good dinner. The arrangement of the restaurant itself is very nice and stylish with a lot of flowers as you can see on the image (click to enlarge) which makes the restaurant really cosy and enjoyable. The only critics I had when I went to restaurant Robinson is that the menu is fairly small and meaty. Of course you get some soups and also not so heavy dishes but the majority, and that seems to be what they are famous for, of the selection is steaks. Not that I don’t like a proper steak for dinner but it seems that its all about meat….

Restaurant Roxane

Restaurant Roxane is probably not one of the most visited restaurants in Budapest due to its location and missing word of mouth propaganda. Thats what I would like to change because Roxane is a very good quality restaurant and café in the 11th district of Budapest, so Buda side in the south part. Roxane is one of these restaurants which is located in the middle of a living area where it gets most customers from and thats it. Usually these types of restaurants are cheap but offer lower quality food. Not so Roxane which serves international cuisine in a very nice ambience, with a fantastic garden and really friendly staff. From really good pasta over massive meat dishes up to fancy salads and good cocktails you will get anything in Roxane and all that for a fair price. So if you live in 11th district or by mistake have a stop there I recommend you to go to restaurant roxane. Adress: Csorbai út 3/c 1119 Budapest Phone: 06-1-206-5677 Opening Hours:…

Két Szerecsen Budapest

Until recently I haven’t heart anything about the restaurant Két Szerecsen in Budapest. It is located in the city center, near Andrássy út and Nagymező utca. At first I thought it is a simple café serving coffee, tea and cakes but it is not only. Két Szerecsen has a very good kitchen, and when I say very good, I mean very good. The menu is not too long and the food to choose from is special but what you get served is just amazing. Két Szerecsen means “Two nutmeg” and the name comes from tradition. In early years 2 people from Muskat opened up a store where they sold tea and in that time an unknown drink called coffee. It used to be a little shop in the outskirts, what is today the city center of a 2 million city. So by that time people came there to drink coffee or tea imported from Muskat. Later the coffee shop turned into a restaurant but the coffee shop stayed aside so…

Than come to A38 ship in Budapest and see famous Hungarian bands playing, drink a cocktail on roof terrace of the boat or have a good dinner.

Dunapark Café in Budapest

Expensive upper class! The Dunapark Café in Budapest is located on the Pest side next to a little park near the Danube. It’s a quiet poshy place and if you want to see a Maserati or some expensive car like that, this is your place. I don’t know if it was bad luck which I had but when I arrived in Dunapark Café and opened my laptop the internet was not working there. Additionally they didn’t have Lager beer anymore and the salad I ate was nothing but some lettuce with a chicken breast which was supposed to be a “Saté Chicken”. In total the Dunapark café in Budapest was a rip off, expensive, low quality even though the place has some flair with comfortable corners to sit in, Poker tables and much more. Nevertheless I would recommend to go to some other café, bar, restaurant in Budapest. ← → x × Previous Next

Mongolian Barbecue Restaurant in Budapest

Restaurant Mongolian Barbecue Budapest is a restaurant which is quiet amazing. The system is that you re actually not ordering your food but yu go to some kind of buffet, take out the meat you would like to have and bring it to the barbeque guys who fry it for you. During the frying you can choose your side dishes and after pick up your fresh fried meat. The variety of meat offered there is amazing, not just the different spices and tasts but also “exotic” meat types like sheep or horse meat. I know that horse meat sounds a bit hard but probably this is what mongolians like to eat. The interior and location of the Mongolian Barbecue in Budapest is some communistic left. So the place and ambience of the Mongolian barbecue restaurant is not that nice but the food is very good and the prices are fair. Thus it is worth a visit if you are interested in eating Mongolian.  Adress:  Márvány utca 19/a. District 12, 1126…

Restaurant Mezcal Budapest

If you want to eat Mexican food there is not only Iguana bar and grill in Budapest even though it is still the best. Anyways, the restaurant Mezcal in Budapest is a quiet nice and good restaurant. It serves good food and not only maxican, but mainly. If you don’t know the difference between Fajita, Quesadilla, Burrito and another one named quiet alike no problem the waiters can tell you the difference. I ate some pork Fajita (it is the one which you have to mix yourself, the meat comes in a pan) which came with a lot of different vegetables aside and 3 different kind of sauces was very good. The other dishes look quiet nice as well and also tasted very good. So f you like Mexican food and you are sick of Iguana go to Mezcal you will not regret it.  Address: Tompa utca 14, Budapest.

intenzo

Cafe Intenzo Budapest

The Cafe Intenzo in Budapest is located directly at Kálvin tér and thus suffering very much from the constructions for the Metro 4 station. Nevertheless when I was in Cafe Inenzo, which is actually a restaurant, the place was not empty, rather well visited. The service is not the best one as simple orders such as a drink take ages even till the waiter is coming to your table takes quiet long. But once you get your food you won’t care anymore since the food is really good. The dishes vary from all Hungarian traditions such as Goose liver to international food like steak or fish dishes. I was drinking some cocktails there but I think it would be better to drink a simple beer as the cocktails were not so good, far too sweet. Anyways Cafe Intenzo is a nice place to go to, they have an outside garden in the backyard and a nice interiored inside area. If you are aroung go have a lunch or a breakfast….

Restaurant Choco Budapest

The restaurant Choco in Budapest is a nice, well styled restaurant in the outscirts of Budapest. Choco offers what is nowadays called fusion food. Duck Asian style and weird seafood creations. Nevertheless the food is good and interesting but proced a bit above average. Restaurant Choco is located in a shopping complex outside of the Budapest city centre.  The prices are a bit expensive but for the food which is served there it is acceptable. But combined with the location outside of the city there are much better restaurants in Budapest.  Adress: Hűvösvölgyi út. 138 1021 Budapest Tel: +36 1 44 24626 Or visit the Choco website ← → x × Previous Next

Mokka Budapest

Restaurant Mokka in Budapest is situated close to the Basilica in Sas utca. The first impression makes it a high quality restaurant but on the second view it is an expensive middle class restaurant. The prices are way above average but the food is very good. Interesting are the tappas as a starter. You have to choose 6 different tapas you get served next to a salad and some dips. Small portions but very good. The prices for main dishes go up to 10.000HUF which is very expensive for Hungary but for “Langostino” it is fair. Nevertheless Mokka in Budapest is too expensive compared to better quality restaurants like Chez Daniel or Goa.  Adress: Sas u. 4, Budapest. Reservations: +36 1 328 0081 ← → x × Previous Next

So really it is a bit from everywhere in the world. It looks exactly the same for the main dishes, Wok fried chicken with chili and ginger or Gypsy steak with potatoes just to name 2 dishes which probably come from the other end of the world.

passports

The Worlds most “powerful” Passports

There are passports and there are passports. Not with every passport you can travel freely in every country for various reasons. But which are the passports you can travel into most of the countries freely? And which are the ones that don’t allow you to enter most of the countries? The list below gives clarity and as the refugee topic is more actual then ever these days I think it is worth to publish this list. The first place is shared between the UK and the USA followed by France, Germany and South Korea on a shared second place. So the list goes on with mainly Western countries but with less free access to many countries. On a shared ninth place comes Hungary alongside Czech republic and Australia. On the bottom of the list on a shared place 80 you find Solomon Islands, Myanmar (Burma), South Sudan, Sao Tome and Principe and Palestinian Territories. This should not be a political post which I ever since I do BudapestAgent.com avoid. So…
