Munich & Budapest Recommendations Needed

Thank you, Steve. Borkonyha is definitely added to my list and your review of Onyx has only justified my desire to go there!

Happy Anniversary to you and your wife!

Munich & Budapest Recommendations Needed

Hi All,

Just arrived in Munich, here until Friday and then off to Budapest for a week.

I've read through the threads (old & new) to get ideas for food but I'd love more recommendations too.

We are not picky eaters but would prefer to stay with German/ Bavarian/Italian/Hungarian foods (if there is a must try outside that, please suggest it). I love desserts and pastries, so places for those too!

Comfortable with any price range and any place we can get to by walking/public transportation (staying just outside city center in Munich and on the popular Pest side in Budapest).

My list thus far:

Munich- Der Pschoor, Spatenhaus an der Oper, Georgenhof, Weiss Brauhaus, Austemkeller, Dellmayers

Budapest- Gerbaud, Bock Biztro, Costes, Onyx

Thank you!

30th Birthday Dinner in Philly

Hi All,

I'm turning 30 tomorrow and I am in town for work with some coworkers (10 of us will be dining).

We were trying to figure where to go to eat tomorrow.

We are from LA and a lot of us are foodies. We want to stay at about 30-40$ per person (not including alcohol).

We are open to all cuisines and a restaurant near our hotel would be awesome (Downtown Marriott) but we are willing to cab it too.

Thank you for the suggestions!!

Looking for lunch recs near Getty, Venice Beach, Brentwood or Santa Monica

Hi Schoenick,

As far as raw food goes, I am not too sure where to recommend. But I can make some recommendations otherwise.

I would try out:

Huckleberry, on Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica
Cora's on Ocean Blvd. in Santa Monica
Gjelina on Abbott Kinney in Venice

Those are my three favorites, as of right now. They have healthy, and some unique dishes, with amazing flavor. They are reasonably priced. Cora's and Gjelina will be a longer wait than Huckleberry's.

My golden B-day is approaching and I need help!

Hi Chowhounders!

I am turning 27 on April 27th. I keep getting told it is my "golden birthday" so I feel especially pressured to pick a fun place to celebrate with my friends.

I live in Huntington Beach, and since I usually spend my weekends in Santa Monica, I don't know of any REALLY good food in Orange County (we just suffer in comparison to LA).

Last year I went to the Crow Bar, and really liked it and the year before I went to Habana's (so ideally I'd like something "similar" to those places. Like a young, hip, good food place, that won't cost more than 25-30$ per person for dinner (alcohol cost excluded).

I am open to all food types.

Please, please, please help!
