[Budapest] Day 3

After a crazier-than-expected evening on day 2 (which totally could’ve ended up Hangover style), we started our day 3 rather slowly with coffee, croissant, and cake at GOAMAMA COFFEE.

The eating continued as we marched towards Budapest’s Christmas market.

I quite liked these cabbage rolls, which are cabbage leaves wrapping minced pork. Served hot and steamy on a winter day – perfect.

Then, we played tourist and visited Heroes’ Square, which is where the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Art are located. The central site, however, is the Millennium Memorial, with statues of the seven tribes that founded Hungary in the 9th century and other important figures of Hungarian history.

Skating rink behind the square (the queue to get in was very long, FYI for those who are thinking about going.)

Hungarian Parliament.

Shoes on the Danube Promenade, a memorial to honor he Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during WWII.

For our last meal in Budapest, a local friend took us to Kiskakukk, a traditional Hungarian restaurant that has apparently been there before WWI broke out. The dishes, very generous in portion and reasonably priced, were authentic and delicious. Do make a reservation ahead of time just in case.

Goulash soup (780 Ft).

Medallions of pork with Hungarian vegetable stew, served with potato rounds (2,550 Ft).

Tenderloin stuffed with bolete mushroom cream, served with goose liver in Cabernet sauce, grilled vegetables, and Mediterranean potatoes (4,390 Ft).

A delicious local white.

Major food coma ensued, and we slowly made our way back home. On another note, here are some snapshots of the studio we rented for our 3 nights in Budapest – pretty sleek, no? Very affordable too, via Airbnb ;)
