Foods You Should Not Miss When You Are in Budapest
1. SALTY TEA BISCUITS OF RUSZWURM
These salty tea biscuits in Ruszwurm, a confectionary shop serving for almost two centuries now, are just the perfect companion for, yes, a cup of tea or a cup of hot chocolate after touring around the Castle District in Buda Hill. This is your best option of a food when you are not into anything heavy at the moment and just wanted some knick knacks to go with your chosen beverage.
2. GOULASH SOUP AND WALNUT CREPE OF GUNDEL
If you are after some genuine Hungarian food, the famed Gundel Restaurant, near the Szechenyi Thermal Bath is the place to be. Do not miss their appetizing Goulash soup and their Classic Walnut Crepe that topples all other crepes out there due to the flaming dark Chocolate Sauce the crepe has been drenched with. Be amused by the amazing spectacle as the waiter light and fire up your crepe and place it in front of you to devour.
3. RACHEL RAJ'S FLODNI
Taste Hungary's most famous Jewish cake, Flodni, made based in a family recipe of Rachel Raj, one of the queens of Budapest Jewish cooking, which includes ingredients like poppy seeds, apple, walnut and plum jam. A popular Chanuka cake of Eastern-European families before, this delight can now be tasted only in Budapest. It is already enough to get a slice as the cake has an interesting texture and explosive taste that can satiate your buds and tummy in an instant. Yum!
