This place is amazing!!! This is the  Fisherman’s Bastion, located on the Castle Hill in Budapest. It’s part of a large compound that consists of homes, shops, churches, and the Buda Castle. Greg and I arrived here early this morning and the view couldn’t be any better. Good morning!

Grated butter, Large fries, Lamb + fig, Pimientos de Padrón (fried Padrón peppers, Maldon salt)

Morros de vaca en salsa almadeira (slow cooked beef cheek in madeira sauce)

Large fries

Anchoas (anchovy)

Gambas pil-pil (shrimp marinated in garlic chili olive oil)

Tonight, we visited Padrón, located right in the center of Budapest. It’s small, family run, and delicious! This was such a long, but lovely day-we walked all day long with very few periods of rest. We got home, rested a bit and left hoping this place wasn’t closed since they were soon closing for their summer holiday. We ordered an assortment of things, and nothing disappointed us. This is a must visit if you ever get the opportunity to come to Budapest.

The colorful streets of Szentendre

What a delight! Greg and I ventured out of the center of Budapest and made our way to Szentendre, his favorite town in Hungary! Szentendre is this lovely village that’s just a 40-minute train ride/ 15-minute car ride from Budapest. This little town is adorned with cobblestone roads and blissfully colored architecture. Later we took the train to Fellini Római Kultúrbisztró to have something to drink, and just relax since we had been out all day. Later we went out to eat at Padron. I’ll dedicate a post just for that!

I had to dedicate a whole post to this dish called, Lecsó. Greg, my Hungarian friend and I lunched here together at A Séf Utcája. It’s located in Belvárosi Piac Market, which most tourist don’t know about. I asked that he help me choose the most Hungarian dish. He immediately recommended, Lecsó.  Based on all the paprika and tomato based sauce, it looked like it would be really tasty…but nothing could prepare me for exactly how tasty this dish was. Wow. It was so good, I didn’t want the meal to end. I wanted to sit there all day and just relish in all the flavor, but we couldn’t as Greg needed to return to work! If you ever make it to Budapest, Hungary, I highly recommend visiting  A Séf Utcája.  You will not be disappointed!
