Even though Budapest might not be the first destination that comes to mind when thinking about food, it will not 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.
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.
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.
