Did you know that Budapest is the capital in Central Eastern Europe with the most Michelin stars? Michelin Guide is the oldest of its kind in Europe, it has given restaurant reviews for more then a century. Budapest, the capital of Hungary can boast with 5 Michelin starred restaurants – each of them has one of the precious symbol. Costes, Onyx, Borkonyha,Tanti and Costes Downtown are all worth a visit.
Borkonyha, probably the most relaxed one is a must for all who likes discovering local ingredients matched with local wines. Borkonyha (the name literally means ’Wine Kitchen’) is very keen on limited amount craft wines. If you are there, ask the sommelier for his recommendation! The cuisine is international with more then a touch of local soul. It is a bistro and the owners insist on keeping the bistro style in spite of the fame brought by the Michelin star. A daily recommendation these days is this duck leg with sweet potato – a good example of their kitchen.
If you wish to have a feast, try the the Angus beef tenderloin with savoy cabbage and vanilla flavoured onions, paired with Attila Cuvée from Attila Gere, Villány!
