Full description
Since Buda is not high on tourist radars, the eateries, markets, and shops here have been designed with locals in mind. You will see the places where locals like to go. The tour starts with a visit to a neighborhood market (one of the best in the city!) where farmers and artisans from the countryside come to sell fresh produce, carefully bottled jams, juices, preserves, and more. Several butchers here specialize in indigenous Hungarian animals, with high-quality meat from Mangalica and grey cattle on offer. Cheese mongers offer an array of delicious cheese made in the local styles. For lunch you will feast on authentic home-style Hungarian dishes at a few tiny eateries where the cooking is grandmotherly, as is the décor. Lunch will be followed by a stop at a gem of a pastry shop, run by the same family for generations, where the pastries taste as beautiful as they look. The walking tour will include a coffee break at a Socialist-style coffee shop which has barely changed over the past several decades.

In addition to eating your way through Budapest, the local guide will discuss the fascinating sights, architecture, and history in this eclectic part of town. Buda locals love living here for another reason— the Buda side has the best thermal bath houses. This walk ends near a local favorite, where you’ll also have the opportunity to taste some healing water. If you are so inclined, you'll be provided information and directions towards these warm mineral-rich waters (which are said to help with digestion) at the tour’s end.
