Well, if you know me well enough, you should know that I literally always feel hungry. I felt a lot hungrier when I was in Hungary though. Nothing is better than having a proper meal in a decent restaurant. Let me show you what I've eaten when I was in Budapest, and see if you'd feel a bit hungry too after reading this?
This restaurant is actually just located right next to the famous Fisherman's Bastion in Buda area. I was here at night and I was prepared to "pay for the view". However, the view from the restaurant wasn't as spectacular as I thought. So don't expect to see anything from the inside as the trees nearby blocked almost everything...
The service was totally amazing, and the food was beyond tasty. I'm not exaggerating it but I guess I'd say it's worth what I paid for. The atmosphere here was lovely, and I loved how the musician interacted with us. Let's talk about the food I had. I chose the mushroom soup as my starter and I'm so glad that I did. The taste was so rich and I loved how they poured the soup in front of me...
I just feels like a show to me but I guess they just wanted to make sure the egg yolk wouldn't be overcooked. My main course was a slow-cooked pork belly with shrimp. The meat itself was so soft and tender. It's also so filling. I selected a dessert called "Smoking Chocolate" because I found the name so interesting. I guess they named this dessert like that since it looks like a cigarette. It's actually nothing but a chocolate mousse. It's always a good idea to have dessert after a proper meal! Everything was just perfect.

Everyone was so crazy about this cafe in Budapest because it looks so grand and gorgeous. So I finally came here and see if I would be the same as well. I was here in the morning around 10 and it was super busy. Although the waiting time wasn't that bad, every single table was taken. I think this cafe is really beautiful, but I just don't feel like I could stay here long and enjoy my breakfast slowly.
I ordered their signature dessert set which was a chocolate cake and a hot chocolate. I love the cake so much. I love how they styled it. It's super tasty and chocolatey. However, I think their hot chocolate was too strong to me. I just felt like I was drinking a chocolate sauce or so... maybe that's why it comes with a huge cup of sparkling water... I actually finished only 1/3 of the hot chocolate, and I never found so much "tasty" a sparkling water could be... LOL
New York Café | Budapest, Erzsébet krt. 9-11, 1073 Hungary ★★★★☆
P.S. I actually went to one of the worst restaurants that I had been to in my life when I was in Budapest but I don't want to waste my time to review it... but please, feel free to ask me which one it was so that you could avoid it. Anyway, have fun and enjoy being hungry in Hungary!
