A foodies guide to Budapest

Pink Cadillac
For our first meal because we got into Budapest early evening we decided to stay quite close to the place we were staying. Although I am one try traditional dishes when visiting a new place, sadly nothing from Hungary really took my fancy (insert monkey with hands over face). So we stuck to pasta's and pizzas and burgers for our dinner's. But I'm glad we did because this little restaurant was just right. It had a good variety of vegetarian dishes suitable for my friend and it even did gluten free which is a result if you know anyone who is. The food was absolutely to die for. I went with the burger and being a massive burger fan I do enjoy trying them where ever I go and my word was it good. There was plenty of sauce, some of which ended up on my nose (maybe not a meal for a romantic date) and the girls all send their dishes of risotto and and tagliatelle were just as delicious. Also the serving of barcadi was so large we only needed one and that is definitely one of the things I enjoy about being abroad haha! The waiter was so friendly so I highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the area!

Budapest, Hungary Travel Diary Two

St Stephen's Basilica

So on to day two! In all honesty we spent the first half of our day eating and drinking and so that half is in another post, but with full tummy's we started wondering to the Buda side of budapest, Yep that is right, Budapest is split in half by the Danube River, one side is known as Buda, and the other by Pest. Buda is the side which is known to be older and not as hustle and bustly but on this side is home to the castle and many gorgeous architects, so it was only right that we spent our second day visiting it. On our walk to the Iron Bridge, we walked past St. Stephen's Basilica, if I'm being honest though one of the main reasons I wanted to walk past here is because I knew there was a gem of an ice cream stand near by (see my food post for the surprise) But we were here so we did take time to admire the grand building, I mean just look at it! It's no surprise is known as one of the most significant and beautiful churches in Budapest.

Budapest, Hungary Travel Diary One

 I recently took a trip to Budapest with my sister and an old but dear friend of ours. We'd joked months ago through twitter about all getting away and going to see Budapest together, but none of us really thought anything would come of it. Then around Easter we actually decided to go ahead and do it, add a little spontaneity to our lives and so off we went to Budapest! Although we were there from 5th-8th of June really we only had 48 solid hours to explore as the two other days were spent travelling and my word did we manage to pack a lot into the two solid days! So here is a little diary of what we got up to.
