A Foodie's Guide to Budapest

A Foodie's Guide to Budapest, Budapest, Hungary (B)

Every article and blog post I read about Budapest before I went told me it would be a cheap city. What I found was that it was not that cheap. I got the impression that Budapest as a whole is geared towards tourists and so prices to enter tourist buildings are high and there are a lot of fine dining restaurants, especially near Chain Bridge. Obviously we indulged, especially as it was my birthday while we were there, but we ate out cheaply too (and cooked for ourselves in our Air BnB on occasion). If you put a lot of planning into it you could stay in Budapest on a backpacker’s budget. Here is every bar and restaurant we set foot in during our trip to Budapest. There’s something for every budget so there’s tips for everyone, regardless of how you want to spend your holiday.

On the edge of Hero’s Square and City Park, is this lovely little bistro, Varosliget, which has a stunning backdrop of the park and the replica fairy tale castle within. We stopped for a midday coffee after having a wander around the park and there was a jazz singer serenading diners. I had a hazelnut latte and my pal had the dreamiest hot chocolate I’ve ever tasted. Hot drinks were a little over 3 Euros each, but were served on a tray with a little bit of water and a biscuit. They also served a wide array of cakes and sweet treats. Highly recommend if you’re in City Park; it would be a good place to stop after a dip in the thermal baths. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
