When you think about a visit to Budapest, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it the increasingly famous nightlife? Possibly. Or maybe the relaxing outdoor spas take precedent in your ideas? The Hungarian capital is known for both, so either would be a more than acceptable answer. You’ll likely leave the city with fond memories of both too, but we’re happy to put a sneaky forint on the delicious food being your favourite takeaway from this marvellous city.
Not that you’re going to want to eat takeaway too much. The best restaurants in Budapest are as likely to tickle the aesthetic tastebuds as much as the literal ones. Eating in Budapest is a joy, be it in a Michelin star stunner or a cheerful vegan bistro. Character and cuisine go hand in hand here, and hungry visitors are the winners. Everything also veers to the more affordable side of the ledger, which is never a bad thing. Egészségére!
