Feeling hungry after a night of pub crawl in Budapest? It’s time to dive into the Budapest street food experience, supplied by the city’s amazing chefs. A revolution has started in Budapest a few years ago to modernize the street food scene, and the results will surely convince you of its success. Here’s a list of our top picks!
The forerunner in the street food business was Zing Burger for sure. Run by professional chef Ádám Susánszky, the food trucks are stationed in several areas around town like next to Gozsdu Courtyard and at 13 Király Street. Their specialty is of course burger, but what burgers! Artisan buns, homemade sauces and juice beef patties make this food truck famous with huge lines of starving people snaking before it in the middle of the night. All ingredients are delivered fresh and there are new inventions from time to time to complete the selection of classics.
A more traditional approach is the true Hungarian favorite, the lángos (deep fried dough with garnish). Lángos Máshogy is parked at 18 Kazincy Street in the Jewish District at a place called Karaván food court, the gathering place of the top Budapest food trucks. Most bar tours stop here as it’s close to famous ruin pubs, and the selection is just amazing. Lángos Máshogy sells the standard lángos with toppings like sour cream, cheese, sausages, goose cracklings or Gouda cheese. Tasty and filling, all you need for a pubcrawling night!
A new addition to the street food scene is the Gnocchi Furgon located at 51 Üllői Road, in the courtyard of the former military garrison. The chef is determined to make the perfect gnocchi with traditional garlic and tomato sauces and parmesan cheese topping. At the same time, the truck and its crew are trying new inventions of their own, like coconut-curry infused pasta and Thai style shrimp pasta. Give it a try if you’re around the Corvin Negyed area!
This is just the tip of the iceberg when we’re talking about the excellent selection of food trucks and groundbreaking inventions of street food in Budapest. So, are you ready for a cool night of pub crawl in Budapest? If the answer is yes, get your crew together and book today!
