Let’s be honest. Travelling wouldn’t be travelling if it wasn’t for the food you’ll try in places you’ve never been before. I heard tales about the hungarian food¹ and yes it’s really that good. So here’s a list of stuff you shouldn’t miss when you’re in Budapest or Hungary!
This is pastry fried in oil and topped with sour cream and everything else you’d like! Try them at the Central Market or at some fest in Budapest. They’re handmade and so tasty. The dough is soft from the inside and crispy from the outside. I was a bit sceptic because of the oil thing but it’s so good and it doesn’t taste oily. You should try it with sweet stuff on top. YUMMMMMY!
Haven’t tried this one, because it was way too hot for it in summer but Marlena tried it on a rainy and cold spring day and absolutely loved it! You should get some Goulash Soup in Budapest or Hungary because it’s the country which invented this soup. We even call it Hungarian Goulash Soup in Germany. If you try Goulash Soup order one in a loaf as this is super traditional (yet a bit touristy but who cares!) and super delicious!!
Traditional Paprika Chicken
Okay, I tried this one and it was one of the tastiest things I’ve ever eaten. I’m not kidding. The paprika tastes different there. Originally it’s called paprikash. So it’s basically a chicken breast with paprika cream sauce and some Spaetzle (sort of noodles). It was so good, I could’ve eaten a second plate… and maybe even a third. Lol :D
This fancy ice-cream is something you should definetly try. Even though it’s not that cheap and you’ll have to wait a bit, but it’s ice-cream in form of a rose! I found pictures of this ice-cream on Instagram and promised myself I would buy one of those delicious things when I’m in Budapest. I did, and it was so worth it! YUMMMMMMMY!
My. Dear. Lord. Probably the best thing I’ve eaten in my life. It’s kind of a sweet bread where the dough is rolled around a stick and gets baked over flames. On top this bread gets decorated with cinnamon, poppyseeds, vanilla sugar etc. It simply tasted too good to have any time left to take a phot of it!
Any other solid and spicy Hungarian meal
Hungary is famous for its spices and for its solid meals and you should try them, too! A good and easy option for trying such food is the Budapest Market Hall next to the Liberty Bridge with endless options for great food such as fried potatoes with pepper salami or great and hearty stews!
Anything we missed? What did you love in Budapest and what should we try next time there?
¹ I guess Janna is talking about me. Food was my no. 1 topic when I talked about Hung(a)ry.
² And a bit of Marlena – the girl who loves food more than people:D
