Budapest food guide

I have been living in Budapest since september due to my studies, and I am loving it. Budapest is a really trendy and charming city, with a lot of history.  

 From now on I will be posting some recommendations from Budapest. Since I am a true foodie and Budapest have a lot of good restaurants and variety in their food, this post will be about some of my favourite restaurants so far. 


Mazel Tov: My favourite jewish restaurant is this cozy and trendy ruin garden type of place. Good falafels and a lot of vegetarian options for a very cheap price, they also have good drinks. It is located in the jewish district and is very popular amongst locals, it is almost always fully booked so remember to book in advance. In the summer one can sit outside under the stars, during the winter this is a heated garden with charming lights. There is live music every day, and the atmosphere is somewhat magical.

Vintage Garden: Is located in the jewish district and is a very chic place. They have different themes both on their interior and food, as it changes according to the season. Lovely food and drinks, great lemonades, especially the ginger lemonade. During the summer this place is located under the stars, but during the winter the garden closes of so remember to book in advance.

Next-door one can buy all kinds of delicious desserts and cakes at their cafe 'The Sweet by Vintage Garden'. 


Baraka: Is pure French-Asian cooking art, and is recommended in the Michelin guide. Classy and gastronomic food, that is beautifully made. Recommended for special occasions as it is a bit pricy, but it is worth every coin. Located a short walk from the five-star hotels and Danube.


Nobu: Japanese restaurant at the Kempinski hotel. Try the passion fruit and salmon ceviche as a starter, and the black cod as a main, YUM. The lychee drinks are also well worth a try, they are amazing.

Local Corner: the best pizza if you are in a hurry. You can customize your own pizza for a really good prize. Eat there or take it away. They have lot of great vegetarian options and many types of tasty beers.


Konyv Bar and restaurant: a very chic restaurant located in the heart of the jewish district. They 'cook a new book' each week, which means that one can read the book and taste the flavours from the book inspired dishes. A very cool concept. The food is superb as well. 


Menza: Cool and trendy restaurant, a favourite to a lot of young locals. Good duck dishes.

Iguana: the best Mexican in town. Order the veggie fajitas with extra guacamole and cheese topping, Yummy! The mojito and margaritas are also great.

Sao: a tiny restaurant with vietnamese dishes. Good spring rolls and dumplings. 

Tokio: The best sushi in town. A tad expensive, but it is worth it. Japanese dishes and sushi, and great drinks. Relaxed atmosphere in a very trendy place. 

Fruccola: Everything from soups, pastas, cakes to mix your own salad. Super tasty and healthy food.

Kiosk: Very posh and cool place. Great food and even better drinks.
