Even though Budapest might not be the first destination that comes to mind when thinking about food, it will disappoint the hungry foodie tourist. I visited Budapest for 5 days, ate and drank a lot, and now I’m here to help you experience the best Budapest has to offer.
In the second of three posts I’ll be taking you on a savory journey through the streets of Budapest. From cheap street food to Michelin starred restaurants, I’ve got everything your heart (and stomach) desires, including some places to stay clear of.
Good morning from winter chilly warm and sunny Jerusalem. Who could imagine such a sun shining on Jerusalem in February. We seized the day (and the weather) and drove east to pay a visit to Mahane Yehuda Market and have a taste of some of the many street food joints in and around the market.
Lokkee is a place full of contradictions. While it might be physically located inside a mall, it is nothing like what you’d expect to see in a mall food court, both in terms of food and decor. It serves favorite Chinese recipes but with a unique and witty play. As befitting an oriental Chinese restaurant, red is a dominant color here, but the walls are covered with pop art pieces in Chinese style and statues with a statement. It’s a family restaurant but the “extra moist” wet tissue was served at the beginning of the dinner in a condom-like package.
Budapest might not be the first destination that comes to mind when thinking about food, but let me tell you – it doesn’t disappoint the hungry tourist. I visited Budapest for 5 days, ate and drank a lot, and now I’m here to help you experience the best Budapest has to offer.
Scavenging through Instagram to build my foodie itinerary for Singapore I came across many pictures of a rubber ducky. Oddly enough – this wasn’t the case of mis-hashtagging we all often bump into in Instagram. Rather, this was an actual edible rubber ducky! Turns out this is one of the signature desserts at Non Entrée Desserts.
Timbre+ is a 24,00 sq.ft modern hawker hosted in a graffiti-covered container park. It has live music concerts, many different food trucks and restaurants, alcohol and lively hip atmosphere. There’s one thing it’s sorely missing though: air conditioning. The place is packed full of people, all of them sweating, and those include yours truly. I’m sorry for the graphic picture, but I would be having hard time enjoying even the most ambrosial food on earth when sitting in a pool of my own sweat.
I love a good burger, who doesn’t? That’s why I’m always on the lookout for great burger joints. Some prefer to keep it classic – bun, patty, lettuce, tomato and onion. Not me. I love my burger topped with much more – and then some (and maybe even stuffed with extra things). The more creative and over-the-top it is, the better. Prozdor do not disappoint when it comes to surprising and wacky creations.
Last year we traveled all the way to Denmark, to get married on the beautiful island of Ærø.
If you are planning on getting married in Denmark or are thinking about it, I warmly advise hiring the service of a private agency which often helps expedite the process and overcome any language barrier. We used Getting Married in Denmark which was recommended by a friend who got married a few months prior. They took care of everything, from booking to the apostille service, and allowed us to enjoy what the place has to offer without worrying about the logistics too much.
