Budapest, Hungary – part three

Hubby had seen a review of the New York Cafe in Budapest and said that it was in a very historical building and was supposed to be opulence at it’s best. I normally would not want to go to anything with an American name or association when visiting another country but we decided that we would just get coffee so I agreed. It was amazing!






Hubby also had another request for the day. We were near an Italian restaurant that Rick Steves recommended for lunch and hubby was jonesing some Italian food. I, of course, obliged and we walked to Millennium da Pippo on Andrassy. I had the Raviolis with prosciutto and spinach and hubby had a pizza with spicy sausage, hot peppers, and onions. They both were very good. Once again, Rick Steves had not let us down. 🙂

We walked through a park that was beautiful.



We were close to a tap room/beer store called Csak a Jó Sörök. It was a very small space with only a few tables. They had an amazing selection of bottled beers with about 6 on tap. We even saw quite a few American beers. I started with Albino Rasta, and IPA brewed by Armando Otchoa in Hungary. Hubby and I split the Mout & Mocca, a Russian Imperial Stout brewed by Brouwerij De Molen in the Netherlands. We met another American traveling by himself from Texas while we were imbibing. We got to talking and having so much fun that we decided to split 2 more beers. We shared Half N Hafina, a Stout brewed by To 01 in Denmark, and Marschall Amplify Ale, a Red Ale brewed by Armando Otchoa.




As we were discussing beers, we started talking about another brewery that was close by called Hopfanatic. We all three decided that we would go. It officially became a “pub crawl” day! At Hopfanatic, I had the Nohoplimit which was a Imperial IPA. I’m sure hubby had something in the dark beer category but I really have no recollection as to what he had.


We ventured to Léhűtő for another round of beers. I had the Távoli Galaxis Intergalaktikus Pale Ale. They had 6 Hungarian beers on tap and sold many other bottled beers from other countries. It was a fun place.


We started the long walk home and realized that we had forgot about dinner. We had not planned anywhere to eat and didn’t have anything in mind. As we were walking through one of the Christmas Markets we saw some gyros that looked amazing. So there it was…dinner. We stood in the rainy night air at a wet table eating gyros and loving it! We called it a night after that.
