Eating and Drinking Under the Radar in Budapest, Hungary

I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed following your culinary journey through Budapest. I will definitely take your advice on Fulemule when I am there in early September. My goal was to eat as much goose as possible, that sounds like a good place to start.

I always liked the Kisharang on Oktober XVI for a quick Hungarian standards lunch. Great mushroom stew (gomba porkolt) and a fine schnitzel (borju becsi szelet).

Budapest 2010

I lived in Budapest for several years in the 1990s, visited a few times since, but haven't been back since 2003, which is light years in restaurant time.

I will have two nights in Budapest in late August, and am looking for the nearly impossible for one of those nights, a place that serves high quality authentic pre-war Hungarian cooking in a setting that isn't soley geared for tourists. It can be updated Hungarian cooking but not looking for fusion. I do not need a rustic, old fashioned "folklor' type setting---food is most important. There must be more than Kehli, Nanci Neni or Kis Buda Gyonge, which I have both done many times, and were "tired" when I left. Have also been to Cafe Kor several times, and could go back if there are no better options. Have no futher interest in Gundel.

Based on some internet research, Borbirosag, Cafe Bouchon, and 21 seem to potentially fit the bill, but would like some guidance.

For the second night, I am open to something newer, more Hungarian/ International.

Would welcome all suggestions but preferably from someone who has dined in Budapest in 2010. list hasn't been updated since 2008.

Thanks in advance.

Saturday Brunch or Breakfast

Personally, I think the In Between Cafe in Red Bank on White Street has hands down the best breakfast in Monmouth County. Bob, the owner/chef, personally prepares every meal. Creative, fresh breakfasts and they use hand picked local eggs. Off the charts.

In Between Cafe in Red Bank.

I completely agree. It is by far the best breakfast and lunch place in the greater Red Bank area.

nice meal in Jamesburg, N.J.

Unfortunately, corporate interests from Robert Wood Johnson Hospital have moved in and knocked down the building housing Chardas, which is sadly no more. The last Hungarian restaurant in the once thriving Hungarian community of New Brunswick has closed. With this closing, and the closing of Aranka's in Franklin Park in 2004, I do not know whether any Hungarian restaurants exist in NJ.
