If you follow the Holy Whisk Blog, this post won't be a surprise since every time I go for a visit to Hungary, I try to catch up and try restaurants and street food places I've never tried before. This is what I call: Gastro Adventure.
You can read the previous post from this series here.
I've had a list as always, but I've got some random suggestions that modified the original plan a little bit and there were a few previous favorites I've visited again. The weather was lovely and fortunately, I've scheduled my visits on workdays, so there wasn't a massive crowd.
12. Erzsébet Square, Budapest, 1051
D.O.P accredited pizza in Budapest? Sure!
The guys at Digó Pizza use the best ingredients to elevate the quality of their pizza to meet the strict requirements of the official pizza. For their Margherita D.O.P (Denominazione d’ Origine Protetta = protected designation of origin), they use San Marzano tomatoes grew on the Vesuvius volcano and Mozzarella di Bufala from Campania.
After the long fermentation of the dough, the pizzaiolo bakes the pizza in the 480 °C hot furnaces in less than 90 seconds. The giant air pockets in the crust and the marriage of the quality ingredients makes this pizza a must-have during your visit to the Hungarian capital!
17. Németvölgyi Street, Budapest, 1126
If you would like to have a proper lunch in Buda, seated in a luxury environment then you should try the big sister of Bagatellini. Downstairs you will find their bakery with a wide range of cakes, pastries and sandwiches focused on free-from options.
Upstairs, at the restaurant, you can order versatile dishes from salmon, through pasta to venison burgers. I’ve chosen chicken paprikash with spätzle, topped with sour crème and pumpkin seed oil. My cousin chose the lamb roast. Both of the dishes were delicious, the chicken and lamb were just perfectly done and all elements had a function on the plate which I really appreciate!
The restaurants had no previous information about our visits and
we experienced the same service, quality, and prices as other guests!
In case special service or complimentary meals are offered, we always mention it!
