Budapest is hot for street food, and quite right too, since you can find delicious tastes at budget prices. There is of course the icon: lángos - Hungary’s most famous street food. The hard part is trying to find the best one, but good bets are your local market, or Retro Büfé in downtown Pest, will offer the yummiest fried tough, topped with cheese and sour cream for a very reasonable price. If you’re in the VII District, then give the new street food court Karaván a try. You’ll find lángos stands here, but not just that... burgers, a pasta station as well as Indian dishes... and many of the vendors will give you something delicious to eat and change from your 1000 forint bill.
