Földes Józsi Vendéglöje

Oct 2, 2013 0

Földes Józsi Vendéglöje is a small hidden restaurant on Buda side in the 2nd district not far away from Margaret bridge. This typical Hungarian restaurant just by the interior does not really look inviting as the chairs and table remind of communist times and are outdated by any means. However I had the chance to visit the Földes Józsi on a company event as it can host large sized groups and I was positively surprised by the quality of food. As a appetizer there was plate of typical Hungarian cold cuts such as sausage (Kolbász), ham, different creams, tepertő cheese... ...

Zeller Bistro

Sep 10, 2013 0

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... ...

M Restaurant Budapest

Mar 4, 2013 0

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... ...

Mókus Sörkert Budapest

Sep 7, 2012 0

Mókus Sörkert in Budapest is a small Hungarian restaurant in Budapest located in the 3rd district close to Árpád bridge and the Danube. I go there mainly for lunch time when they offer a reasonable menu (soup + main course) for a fair price but I can imagine that a regular lunch or dinner a la carte is nice as well. The offered food is very good and especially the soups are tasty. In Mókus Kert you get traditional Hungarian cuisine such as Hortobágyi Palacsinta (no, not the sweet pencake but stuffed with meet), all kinds of delicious soups, the... ...
