Hungarian restaurants

Regos Vendeglo

A Hungarian restaurant designed beautifully and suitable for a pleasant dinner or for a fun lunch. In the menu there are a lot of normal dishes and also special ones. We asked from the waiter to recommend us two starters and two main dishes.

He recommended us a bean soup with meat and salty pancakes stuffed with meat. And for the main dishes he recommended type of a type of gnocchi with mushrooms and a paprika sauce, and a deer dish. All the dishes were so good. The flavors were wonderful and even though I initially didn’t want to try the deer, I ended up tasting it and really loved it.

The service was excellent. Don’t miss this restaurant.

Vegan restaurant

Slow Foodiez

The best vegan restaurant I have ever eaten in! It’s worth to eat breakfast or lunch there. I really recommend it even if you are not vegan.

We ordered a green shake that was very cheap and it was so refreshing. As a starter we ordered hazelnut soup (we shared it) that was creamy and with dedicated tastes. For our main dishes we chose a vegan sausage made from nuts that was served with a potato and cabbage salad on the side.

It was a filling and tasty dish in a Hungarian style. And the second dish we had was ravioli with spinach and cashew cheese and it was by far the tastiest ravioli I ever ate. So good!! I want to eat it again 🙂

For desert we took a chocolate orange cake and a mango with apricot cake. Those were excellent too.
They have special dishes every day and good breakfast. You should definitely go there.

BTW the restaurant change their menu often, so unfortunately there is a chance that when you be there, the Ravioli dish won’t be in the menu.

Price range:
starters 2-4 euro, main dishes 5-8 euro.

Vietnamese restaurant
Dang Muoi Pho Bistro

From the moment you enter the restaurant you smell Vietnam’s spices: cardamom, eugenia, garlic, and other good smells. The menu has a big variety of authentic Vietnamese dishes. For starters we ordered steamed spring rolls stuffed with shrimp, egg, pork, and vegetables. It was a light and tasty appetizer. For main dishes we ordered pho soup (I must mention that the large sized bowl is huge 🙂 so ask for it only if you are very hungry).

And another dish called “bun cha” that is one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes (meat, vermicelli noodles, and the best sauce ever). All the dishes were very delicious and really reminded me of Vietnam.

There is no AC in the restaurant so if it’s a hot day, you should take it into consideration.

Price range: 3-8 euro
Opening hours: every day 10:00-22:00

Black Cab burger

After a 3 hour tour in the Jewish quarter we were very hungry, so a hamburger was a great solution for us. I remembered that my friend had recommended me a good hamburger place so we decided to follow her suggestion.

We ordered two hamburgers: one was 220 g and the other 300 g with toppings and one side dish of French fries.
The hamburger was cooked perfectly and the bun was very good and of the right size (same size has the hamburger itself) the toppings were good, so it was a definitely a wise decision to go there.

Price range: 1.5-7 euro
Opening hours 11:00-23:45

Indian Restaurant

Taj Mahal

Great Indian restaurant with cool vibes and full of people. The restaurant is pretty big, but it’s full most of the time. The waitresses all wear traditional Indian clothes and the place is decorated really nicely.  

We ordered two vegetarian dishes: palak paneer (Indian cheese with spinach), malai kofta (Indian dumplings), fish in curry sauce, and basmati rice. The dishes were so good. We really enjoyed our dinner there. If you are an Indian food fan you will love this restaurant.
