If you’re curious about the dishes Hungarian families ate in the ’70s and ’80s, visit the Kádár Étkezde on Klauzál tér. Charmingly simple and brilliant creations are served in a homely, friendly milieu. The floor and the tablecloths are chequered, the walls are adorned with old photographs, and the meat broth is just perfect. Since the eatery is in the Jewish Quarter, it also serves kosher dishes besides the traditional favourites.

Sightseeing
Hopping on tram 2 is considered one of the most beautiful and cheapest ways of sight-seeing in Budapest, as it goes by the riverside of Danube, driving you through the iconic buildings from Jászai Mari Square to the National Theatre. And all of this costs a BKV-ticket’s price – or two if you want to do a retour journey. It is advised to look to your left and right, too, when going in either direction as the tram goes by the Parliament, the Gresham Palace, Chain Bridge and even under Elizabeth Bridge. On the other side of the Danube the Buda Hills can be seen as well as the Castle District and Gellért Bath.
