Hungary, Budapest Guide (B): Gluten Free Budapest: Hungry in Hungary
I came to Hungary hungry (pardon the pun, friends) and I was in for a treat exploring the gluten free Budapest scene! Dan and I spent four days in Budapest in August (a one night layover between Belgium and Austria, and then a proper weekend a few days later).

I usually shy away from writing up gluten free city guides if I don’t feel like I truly know a city. However, I’m going to give gluten free Budapest a shot because Dan’s good friend and her mom (who are both celiac) visited Budapest a few weeks before us, and I got to pick their brains as well!
In this gluten free Budapest guide you’ll find: 100% gluten free Budapest restaurants, the restaurants with reliable gluten free options, the restaurants that were recommended to us but we didn’t make it to, the posts I read before our trip.
This is the only sit-down, 100% gluten free Budapest restaurant, and we ate dinner here on our first night. It has a laid back, cool vibe with al fresco seating and lots of indoor space as well.

He ordered the goulash soup, which ended up being the best goulash soup of everywhere we tried in Budapest. And my Texan barbecue burger was pretty amazing, even if it didn’t have me feeling very culturally assimilated. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
