New Year's Eve Fun in Budapest

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY. This was my first time to spend the New Year's Eve outside of the Philippines. Coincidentally, we were in Budapest when the New Year arrived.

Foods You Should Not Miss When You Are in Budapest

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!
