We've got you covered with the go-to spots to ease those post-night-out munchies.
There’s a full house most days on Balzac utca in District XIII for the soups that have earned OSHO its popularity, top-quality and affordable.
Behind this operation are French-Vietnamese siblings who ensure the food is prepared authentically – the sirloin is boiled and not roasted, to soften it. But if you’re put off by the pink colour, you can ask for a pho soup filled with well-cooked beef.
Familiar with the original outlet, we stepped into OSHO’s downtown establishment only half-an-hour after it had opened it, surprised to see how many had discovered it already.
The design echoes the one on Balzac utca, with similar lanterns, tables, chairs and tiles, but here is more spacious and accommodating.
Instead of glazed patterned bowls, we were served with ones bearing OSHO logos, in which pho bo with beef (small portion 1,490 HUF, large 1,690 HUF) and oriental pho with shrimp and quail’s egg (1,690/2,190 HUF) are served. Also look out for the chicken breast with wood-ear mushrooms mien ga glass-noodle soup (1,299 HUF/1,690 HUF) and the vegetarian Nem Saigon, fried vegetables wrapped in rice.
Despite the downtown location, prices haven’t risen, with everything set the same as up in District XIII.
