Budapest - Our next plant Hunting Trip

Budapest is truly one of the world’s most beautful cities

My next plant hunting trip takes us to the beautiful city of Budapest and the surrounding countryside. I have met some wonderful Hungarian nursery people and plant breeders during our travels and finally I get to visit them and this beautiful city.
Do I have a rough job or what?
I am truly amazed by the number of people that subscribe to my blog, and I am equally amazed that we have subscribers from across the globe, so today I am seeking your advice.

With our upcoming trip to Hungary, I was hoping that some of my subscribers might offer me some advice. If you are from Hungary, or have travelled to Hungary - tell me about your experiences there and offer me some tips on things to see or foods to try. While we do not normally have a lot of free time for your typical tourist activities, we do on occasion see a few things besides plant nurseries.

And if you have followed my blog for any length of time you know that food is high my priority list when travelling. Can any of you recommend a must have dish or a gem of a restaurant?

I've never been to Hungary so I'm counting some good tips and advice.

    While I've never been to Budapest, I have been on a number of occasions to Germany and Ireland, so should you happen to travel there at any time, i can probably give you some places to see.

    Have a great trip.

  2. I've never been there either, but I can't wait to hear about what you find.

  3. Hi Tim,

    I am a 32 yr old Hungarian guy from Budapest. I did not meet your blog before, the Hungary tag brought me here today. I am ready to help you to find good restaurants, places to see, cool youngsters to meet etc. You can find me on skype (galambostamas).

    Hope to hear from you.

    Dear Tim

    I'm not Hungarian nor have I visited there, however, I once owned and operated a wonderful dinner house in Sebastopol California. I served many Euro type dinners, one of which was Hungaian Paprikosh (Not sure of spelling) but the dish was a favorite of my patrons. It is prepared by stewing a chicken with herbs, onions and Hungarian Paprika. When the chicken is tender it is removed from the broth which is saved to cook the dumplings which is made from flour and eggs (no other liquid).Using a table knife the dumplings are added to the broth one at a time in narrow slices. Once they have cooked. they are removed from the broth which is then thickened with flour and sour cream. Served with the boned chicken on a platter, it is sprinkled with another shot of paprika. Hungarian, of coourse. Have a good trip and don't be afraid to order this dish while there.

  7. Marain,

    Thanks for the great tip. I will be sure to order Hungarian paprikash on our trip.

    Good food sustains me!
