To guide you to some of the best spots to grab food in Budapest, we've created a list of seven food lover tips for your visit:


1. LANGOS

You most certainly can't leave Budapest without trying one of its most traditional foods,

langos.


Langos is a flatbread that is deep-fried in fat and can be served plain or smothered with cheese blends and other flavorful toppings. You can find langos nearly anywhere, but we recommend heading to the Central Market Hall.


2. BUDAPEST INTERNATIONAL WINE FESTIVAL

Every year from September 5th to 8th, you can catch the Budapest International Wine

Festival.


This festival has been running for many years and has become a custom for locals and

tourists alike.


3. PALINKA AND SAUSAGE FESTIVAL

If you're in the country in October, definitely make your way to the Budapest Palinka and Sausage Festival to try some of the fantastic European brandy paired with any of the

many sausage varieties you will find throughout the stands.


4. UNICUM

Hungarian Unicum is one of the most famous liquors in the country.


It's an herbal bitter that aids in digestion, which you will find helps tremendously after delving into all of the spicy street foods. You can also head to the Zwack Museum to learn all about the miracle liquor.


5. ETYEK-BUDA WINE REGION

Make your way to the Etyek-Buda Wine Region to experience one of the leading wine-producing villages that have been around since the 18th century.


This winery makes for a great day trip. Just prepare yourself to try dozens of varieties


6. SZAMOS MARZIPAN

Anyone who loves the age-old delicacy marzipan must visit Szamos Marzipan, a museum in honour of the artists Mátyás Szamos and Károly Szabó.


These artists started shaping marzipan into the shapes of flowers and other beautiful

creations back in the 1930s, and this museum intends to keep their spirit and tasty treats

alive.


7. MANGALICA & TARASAI HUSPATIKA

If you are a fan of delis, you are going to adore Mangalica & Társai Húspatika.


This deli has everything from assorted salamis to cured hams, and more. This deli stands today in dedication to the curly-haired Mangalica pig, which is a domesticated, extremely furry Hungarian swine.
