Tourist in my own country 2: Budapest and Szentendre
Following in the footsteps of the previous post, I share with you a couple of picture of some of the exquisite dishes we enjoyed with our friends during our home country journey in the past months, that started out from the capital: Budapest, crossed through the Lake Balaton and took us around the artistic town of Szentendre.
Budapest, Liszt Ferenc tér – Caesar salad with chicken, mixed salad with bacon and feta cheese (fantastic!), pappardelle pasta with aurula, and ham
Budapest, Liszt Ferenc tér – Duck in sour cherry confit with potato dumplings (superb!)
Budapest, Liszt Ferenc tér – Traditional paprika chicken with nokedli
Budapest Old Man’s Pub – Steak!
Budapest Old Man’s Pub – BBQ ribs with coleslaw (for 2 at least!)
Budapest Old Man’s Pub – Duck breast with fruits of the forest and potato lapcsánka (my personal favorite is that amazing sour sauce)
Szentendre – Gooseleg with mashed potatoes and steamed purple cabbage (the boyfriend’s all time favorite)
Szentendre – Calf liver with purple onion, green peas and potatoes
Szentendre – Sole with steamed spinach
Szentendre – Traditional Hungarian stew with nokedli
And the restaurant of our choice in Szentendre – the shades were very welcome in the scorching sun!
I actually got quite hungry now after pasting all these photos… let’s start cooking!!
