Today we will explore the Hungarian cruise in this grand and magnificent 140 years old cafe in Budapest. Every single friend in Budapest recommended this place and when I reached I understood why.
The entrance is grand with a beautiful clock piece and seating area is a reminder of how grand Budapest is outside and inside both. I felt quite grand sitting in the plush dining area.
The very recommended central lemonade was refreshing and interesting with orange lemon and pomegranate syrup especially after a busy day of sight seeing in 35 degrees.
The pheasant broth soup arrived first which was clear soup with vegetables and a pastry made of rice I think.
Next came Shoulder butt steak with sour cream scone, crispy Lyon onion and seasoned gravy for main course. The food was quite unique in taste and obviously reminded me that I am in the land where paprika is the national spice without being hot. The steak was slightly more cooked than my liking but the sides still kept it nice and hearty.
Finally, this place is famous for its desserts and confectionery and there’s a very good reason for that. Every bite was heavenly. The taste of fruit with a slight hint of wine topped with chocolate just set the experience unique.
If you are passing by Budapest, this should be on your list of places to eat in.While it is a bit pricey according to local standards but 3 course meal with lemonade was only £27 pounds, peanuts!
