Tasty, spicy, local and highly versatile – this is fasírt, the Hungarian variation of meatballs. The new Fasírt Kitchen on Paulay Ede utca is focused on these meaty treats, made in four varieties and paired with tasty garnishes. We tried Fasírt Kitchen’s meatballs, perfect for a quick lunch or a laid-back dinner.
Hungarian meatballs have always been popular for traditional Sunday lunch, but now they have inspired the team at VakVarjú to open an eatery revolving around these spicy breadcrumb-covered treats.
You can order traditional pork, truffle-beef, duck and marrowbone variations, or a combination of all four. The meatballs come on a paper plate of six (780-870 forints) or 12 balls (1,390 -1,590 forints), or as a burger with sweet potatoes or a broccoli salad on the side. Chips can be shaken up with homemade spicy salt or sauces, all found on a separate table.
The restaurant is basically self-service: you order at the counter and take your dish when your number gets called. Then pep it all up with as much sauce, salt and spices as you like. Compared to other street-food places, there are plenty of seats here to enjoy your meal in comfort.
The design is young and laid-back, the service fast and menu attractive, while craft beers and other meats and Hungarian treats such as sausages, goulash and grilled chicken also feature. Soon, Fasírt Kitchen will have a weekly offer, as well as lunch specials on weekdays for only 990 forints.
Fasírt is the perfect place for a quick lunch or a few beers with friends – complete with some tasty meatballs.
