Explore Budapest through its food and drinks. Our food, wine, and cultural walking (and tasting) tour begins at The Central Market Hall—Budapest’s cathedral of food—and continues through one of its more charming neighborhoods. This is our signature (and most popular) tour, and provides a wonderful introduction to Hungarian cuisine. The Central Market Hall, one of Europe's largest and most spectacular indoor market halls, is a natural place to begin our exploration of Hungarian food. Here we will get an introduction to Hungarian cuisine through the great variety and abundance of Hungarian ingredients. We will discuss the history of the building, the culture of eating in Hungary, and just what it is that Hungarian home cooks do with all of that pork fat, paprika, and goose liver. As we walk through the three levels of the market hall, we will be tasting a variety of local products. We will visit several other places in the surrounding neighborhood for food tastings, including a bakery where we will sample some cakes, a butcher shop where we will have lunch, and a wine bar where we will taste three quintessential Hungarian wines. Other stops might include a traditional coffee house, a candy manufacturer, an artisan chocolate shop, an artisan ice cream shop, or a spice shop. This tour will give you a taste of the traditional side of Hungarian cuisine, as well as insight into the modern artisanal producers and specialty food shops which are adding spice to Budapest's food scene. Bring an appetite....you will not leave this tour hungry!
