Budapest - must eats

My husband and I will be in Budapest for 4 nights and 5 days in September and are looking for restaurant recommendations! Does anyone have any places that are a "must go to" to recommend? Thank you!

While in Hungary in particular and the region in general you will see a lot of duck on the menu. That sort of explains the pate and the feather pillows and comforters.......

Here are some of my favorites. They all are mostly Hungarian on the menu except for Zing Burger, Café Vian, Lancelots and Hachaupri. And I could make the list 5 times longer. These are all

We highly recommend Cafe Kor. We ate there about 10 years ago and then again thus past April. It's rather small so suggest reservations, but it's not stuffy and the speak good English. But if you go, be sure to ask the prices for their specials. Turns out the asparagus appetizer was more expensive than our entrees. We have liked everthing we've eaten there. And you'll love Budapest!
