Culinary Walk Details
This food, wine, and cultural walking tour explores one of Budapest’s most delicious and charming neighborhoods. It will give you a taste of the traditional side of Hungarian cuisine, as well as the modern side and the artisan producers and specialty food shops, which are adding spice to Budapest’s food scene. The tour begins at the Central Market Hall where you learn about the history of the building (over a taste of Unicum, Hungary’s famous bitter liquor), the culture of eating in Hungary, and just what Hungarian home cooks do with all of that pork fat, paprika, and goose liver. You will make more stops in the surrounding neighborhoods which could include (depending on the day of the week): the city’s best spice/international food shop, a kosher bakery, a patisserie, a soup bar, a traditional coffee house, a candy manufacturer/shop, an artisan chocolate shop, a retro-style bar, and a butcher which serves meals. The last stop is a tasting of three quintessential wines from small Hungarian producers. You won’t be hungry after this tour!
