Restaurants to check out in Budapest

There are two restaurants NOT in Rick's book that are definitely worth eating at in Budapest, particularly if you like the good traditional Hungarian fare (we liked it a lot). Both are in Lipotvaros (near Szabasbag Ter).

The first is a relatively new restaurant that I think was not open the last time the guidebook was updated - Hungarikum Bisztro, on Steindl Imre U. 13. The reviews on Trip Advisor do NOT exaggerate, but you MUST have a reservation (and book ahead; we started asking Monday and didn't get in until Thursday).

The second is a smaller place called Csarnok Vendeglo. It's in the Rough Guides book, located on Hold Utca 11. This place is a simple (like Lugas Etterem, Rick's recommended place), with wooden benches and ridiculously low prices (both had goulash and entrees, glasses of wine and a side for less than $30). Best goulash we had in Budapest (and we had it 3 times). Good, simple, delicious food. ("Finom" is the word for delicious in Hungarian; I would use it for both places).

Happy Eating in Budapest!
