Since we only had a day and night in Budapest, we didn't get to eat many meals there. What we did eat and loved was Hungarian goulash. We ate goulash stew and soup in Prague, Czech Republic, but the goulash in Hungary was the best, especially in a bistro in downtown Budapest.
Some kind of bread. Was okay, nothing special.
Wooden hand-painted egg cups, about 1 euro each. Souvenirs are cheapest in Hungary, I found, so I grabbed a few of these.
We had lunch near the Matthias Church on Castle Hill.
A very yummy goulash soup. I prefer goulash soup to goulash stew. Goulash is tasty, hearty and the perfect comfort food on a cool day.
The best paprika comes from Hungary. At meals, paprika sauce is served, not the powder. The sauce is light to medium-hot, just nice in a soup.
Paprika chicken was okay, but not as good as the goulash.
The apple strudel was very disappointing. The whole meal with a beer was about 3400 HUF/US$17/RM54 but this was in a tourist spot.
And now something for the guys. I've found the Hungarian girls to be the most feminine so far. Pretty. Tick. Sexy. Tick.Well-dressed. Tick. If the Hungarians are so hot, I can't wait to see Romanian girls. Look at how they dominate the magazine covers and runways. I especially like their skin color, the slight tilt in their almond eyes and their feminity.
This photo was taken intentionally but the next two I found among the photos I took.
We loved Hungarian goulash soup so much that we decided that's what we wanted for dinner, especially since we only had 30 minutes before the tour bus arrived. This was the best goulash soup, I highly recommend this place which is near Saint Stephen's Basilica.
The best Hungarian goulash, 720 HUF/US$3.70 /RM11.50 per bowl, including bread (very good and I welcome the change from the hard crusty baguette).
