This Budapest food tour starts at the Central Market Hall, a city landmark that’s over one hundred years old. There, we’ll taste some slices of salami and sausages, get acquainted with the history of the building, and hear a brief introduction on what is eaten and how it’s eaten in Hungary.
Next on this Budapet walking tour, we’ll walk through some of the hidden streets of downtown and taste fresh-water fish in a small local eatery. We’ll continue on for a sweet treat – choose a delectable chocolate bonbon from an award-winning chocolate factory that’s tucked away in Central Pest and known for its pure chocolate, London Chocolate Award, and fair trade production.
As we continue to tour Budapest,, we’ll head to an alternative, retro café for a spritzer and an education in Hungarian drinks. Our Budapest food tour then takes us through the Jewish district, where we can admire the largest and most beautiful synagogue in Europe, and enjoy a tasting of local Jewish fare while learning about kosher food and traditions.
From there, we’ll cross the World Heritage-listed Andrássy Avenue and make our way to the pièce de résistance – tasting delicious, famous, local goulash soup and Hungarian strudels in an authentic restaurant near Saint Stephen Cathedral. We’ll finish our Budapest food tour happily full of some of the best Budapest food in town.
