Zoltán Tóth - F&B Service ManagerMy Budapest tip:
Eat and Drink Like a Local

My Budapest wakes up slowly, gets busy during the day and starts to beat at night. There is one thing you can rely on: you’ll always find delicious local food and matching wine, or pálinka, Hungary’s signature fruit brandy. I can have breakfast, a quick coffee, a long lazy chat over sumptuous tortes or evening drinks in one of the cafés, depending on my schedule. Gourmet palates also find Michelin-starred restaurants, innovative Hungarian food and Central Europe’s only Nobu, right in our hotel. As a professional and enthusiastic foodie, I am in heaven in Budapest as the city holds countless annual food festivals. Even the world-famous Vörösmarty tér Christmas Market has a great selection of food stalls. In May, the Gourmet Festival showcases a tremendous array of stalls for every taste. I especially like discovering artisan regional products. In September, we go to the Castle District to sample and savour wine from the 22 wine regions of Hungary at the Wine Festival. There is also a festival dedicated to Hungary’s indigenous black pig, “mangalica”.
