But what about when it’s time for a shopping break? One of the best things to do in Budapest is to eat your way through all the delicious Hungarian specialties.
The Budapest Christmas Fair and Market makes it easy to do by putting the best of Hungarian food all in one place. There are almost too many delicious Hungarian food and drink options to choose from– you may need to make a couple of visits to sample them all.
We each tried a slice of delicious Hungarian pizza. Again, it was hard to make a selection with so many options available.
The most fun Hungarian treat were the chimney cakes (in Hungarian, the kürtőskalács).
The finished product (about $7) is then rolled in different flavor options like cinnamon, walnuts and almonds. Voila, you have a chimney shaped hallow treat that is absolutely delicious and addictive.
