Foodie Tips for Visiting Budapest
I’m planning my first trip to Budapest in a few months, so naturally, I got curious about the sites and tastes to experience there.
Budapest is full of wonders. Along with the amazing detailed architecture, history, and beautiful natural sites, it’s a place to indulge in the delicious authentic dishes served throughout the nation.
Your palette will be dancing with all the rich flavors. To guide you to some of the best spots to grab food in Budapest, here’s a list of foodie tips for your (and mine!) next visit:
One of the most traditional foods is langos. Langos is a flatbread that is deep-fried in fat and can be served plain or smothered with cheese blends and other flavorful toppings. You can find langos nearly anywhere, but the Central Market Hall is highly recommended.
Hungarian Unicum is one of the most famous liquors in the country. It's in herbal bitter that aids in digestion, which you will find helps tremendously after delving into all of the spicy street foods. You can also head to the Zwack Museum to learn all about the miracle liquor. (I think I might bring some of this home!)
Anyone who loves the age-old delicacy marzipan, visit Szamos Marzipan, a museum in honor of the artists Mátyás Szamos and Károly Szabó. These artists started shaping marzipan into the shapes of flowers and other beautiful creations back in the 1930s, and this museum intends to keep their spirit and tasty treats alive.
Sign up for a Hungarian cooking course. You will get to experience an authentic three-course meal that you helped create. Some of these courses also include shopping in the market for the foods you’ll be preparing.
If you have a fond love in your heart for delis, you are going to adore Mangalica & Társai Húspatika. This deli has everything from assorted salamis, cured hams, and more. This deli stands today in the dedication of the curly-haired Mangalica pig.
Every year from September 5th to 8th, you can catch the Budapest International Wine Festival. This festival has been running for many years and has become custom to the natives and tourists alike.
Don't forget the coffee! Budapest is brimming with coffee culture. You can find amazing coffee varieties in cafes across the city. From ecologically certified coffees to blends and even hot chocolate. It's a great way to take a short break during a hectic day of sightseeing.
