Traveling to a country named Hungary, I figured I would be faced with a lot of greasy, fatty food.
And I was..
What was surprising, though, was that in a world of beef gulyás and heavy pörkölt, I actually found it very easy to find vegetarian food – well, after a vegan at the front desk of my Budapest hostel gave me a post-it note with all her favorite recommendations.
Omelets and cappuccinos at Grill & Chips
These kürtőskalács from Central Market Hall
This sour cream lángos from the food trucks on Kazinczy St.
This vegan meat-lover’s Hungarian pizza and Hungarian Bean Goulash soup from Napfényes (my favorite meal in Europe)
This iced latte from Kőleves
These groceries from Aldi
More omelets, coffee and juice at Spinoza Café
This eggplant sabich and cabbage soup from Hummus Bar
This Mizo kakaó from TESCO
This onion ring veggie burger from Bendő Burger
Even more omelets, coffee, and juice at Bali Caffe
This eggplant parmigiana from a restaurant that was rude
What Hungarian foods did I truly miss out on?
