If you are looking for a good sampling of Hungarian culinary delights then you may have to go no further than the Central Market.
Located at the end of Fashion Street and Liberty Bridge, The Central Market dates back to 1890 and features a wide selection of meats, vegetables, breads along with many other food and beverage products.

“These are what I grew up on and are as good as my mom’s”
I am told by a visiting Hungarian who grew up here. I need no further recommendation for my first introduction to local Hungarian food.
My choice, apple cinnamon. Now that’s a strudel!
The taste tells me I must get to know “mom”. Unfortunately, her daughter and future son in law (if he is smart) are gone when I return for a second strudel. This time, sour cherry apple.
My purchase turns out to be hotter than the sample slices and leaves a fire at the roof of my mouth near my throat. I have now found a good excuse to sample one of the local beers.
A quick language lesson and I am saying thank you like a local, “koszonom”. A further attempt is made to teach me “Good-bye” but I hastily give up. It is not as easy as “koszonom”.
Although a bit tortured by the salami, the Central Market is not through with me yet as it forces me to double back to PRIMA PEK bakery.

I gladly part with FT$195 for a sampling of mini walnut and cherry pastries along with mini pumpkin and potatoes sweet breads.
