The Budapest Food Guide

The Hungarian Goulash

A Goulash, is essentially a stew of vegetables and meat, seasoned with paprika and other spices. Goulash can be prepared from beef, veal, pork or lamb. One can find Goulash, practically in all restaurants, but the best and most budget friendly goulash soups are available in the Jewish District. One such place, as recommended by our walking tour guide, was the Blue Rose Restaurant, in the Jewish Quarter. The further you go away from the Danube, the better is the quality and the price (first hand experience).

A big bowl of Goulash, is served with a bread portion, making it a meal in itself.

Langos / Langosh

The one street food you have to try in Budapest is Langos, which you can have it from the food stalls on the first floor in the Grand Market Hall, or at Retro Langos. Langos or Langosh, is leavened dough fried in high quality oil, brushed with fresh garlic, sprinkled with salt, and served with the serving of your choice. The best toppings has to be that of sour cream, cheese and onion, and either bacon/ham or anything else. It is essentially a crispy, strechy deep fried snack, ready in moments.

Food Tour with Taste Hungary

The main ideology of Taste Hungary, is to give the customers a unique Hungarian Experience, as its experiences that matter the most, and also have the most recollection value, post trip. One such experience offered by Taste Hungary is their Dinner Walk, priced at 110 USD per person.

Start the evening with some traditional Hungarian Wine Tasting at Tasting Table, where along with the different wines, you are served a cold meat platter to accompany the wine. The host from Taste Hungary, Angela in my case, meets you here, and imparts knowledge about the wine culture, the different wine regions of Hungary.
