Make your way to a central location in Budapest, then meet a guide and small group for a tour of the city’s unique foods. The first stop is a market in downtown, where you can meet some traditional producers, and taste several foods.
See the special technique for making lángos, a special fried bread, then learn to eat it like a Hungarian. Continue to a nearby butcher’s shop to taste Hungarian meat products with pickled vegetables—here, and throughout the tour, your guide will share stories about local food traditions and curiosities that will help you understand Budapest culture.
Try several versions of pörkölt, the real goulash, which is a rich stew made with sweet or spicy paprika, sampling both vegetarian varieties and hearty meat soups. Duck into a family-owned patisserie with a hidden courtyard, then finish the tour at a local craft brewery.
You’ll sit down for a tasting of three different craft beers as your guide shares the history of Hungarian brewing. This tour concludes at the brewery, the perfect place to kick off a night in Budapest.
