After every Untour, we ask our clients which aspects of their trip they would want to share with anyone thinking of traveling to that particular location. As finding a good place to eat is one of the toughest things to do when you’re in a foreign country, I’d like to share with you some of the restaurant recommendations we’ve received from 2011’s Budapest Untourists.
Jó étvágyat! That’s the Hungarian equivalent of bon appétit, in case you were wondering.
- Blue Rose got the most recommendations. Located in the Jewish Quarter section of the city, right across the street from our Wesselenyi apartments, Untourists enjoyed it because it offered “convenient and good local food,” and because it had “excellent meals and a separate section for non-smokers.”
- The Blue Rose didn’t come up roses for everyone, though. Here are a few other restaurant recommendations we received:
- Gerlóczy, a good Hungarian food place near the Deak Ter metro stop
- Trattoria Pomo D’Oro, an Italian spot a 10-minute walk from the Parliament building
- La Pampa, an Argentine steakhouse just across the way from St. Stephen’s Basilica
- Soul Café, offers Mediterranean cuisine just afew minutes from the Hungarian National Musuem
And, in case you feel overwhelmed by all there is to do and eat in Budapest, one Untourist recommends that you “take time just to sit, have coffee and observe.”
