Busulo Juhasz claims to have one of the best views in Budapest and indeed it has. The problem is only that the view shows you buildings and areas with no beautiful buildings and not listed on the list of top attractions in Budapest. However, the most important when visiting a restaurant is the food, so keep on reading our Busulo Juhasz review and find out how Budablogger and his family liked it!
We visited the restaurant on a Friday evening and decided to sit inside, while most other guests sat outside. We were quite alone for a while, but after an hour some groups of German tourists started to drop by making some noise in the restaurant. We sat down, ordered some drinks and selected what to order from the menu.
We visited the restaurant with our boy who is two years old. Normally we always ask for normal tap water for him, because that is what he likes the most. In Busulo Juhasz the waiter said he was not allowed to serve tap water to anyone, so we had to order water to him.
The food in Busulo Juhasz
For starters we ordered traditional Hungarian goulash soup, a fish soup and asparagus cream soup. The soups were served quickly and we were completely satisfied with all three of them. The fresh bread served beside the soup was brilliant.
We ordered the following main courses:
- Gnocchi with Cheddar, chicken breast and tempura spring onion
- Crispy duck leg with oriental spice braised cabbage and crackling potato
- Deep fried pork shoulder with parsley spring potato and celery tomato salad
My personal favorite after eating all three of them was the first, but it can be said that all three main courses had a good taste. Somehow none of them has burned its way into my memory, meaning that I will not remember any of them for a long time, nor long back to the restaurant to eat them again, but for a fine dining experience all three main courses were quite nice.
I did not really find any dessert on the menu that sounded tempting to me, but since I knew that I was going to write a Busulo Juhasz review sometime I decided to order a dessert anyway, just to taste one and to give it a chance. I ordered the „Chocolate cake with avocado and mashed mango.” You can see a picture of the cake if you take a look at the pictures beneath this review. The chocolate cake in itself was extremely chocolate, almost too much, and the bottom of the cake, made up of avocado and mashed mango, turned out to be to much. So I did not really enjoy neither the top nor the bottom of the cake, much less the combination of the two of them. However, I guess the problem is with my tongue and not with the cake…
Busulo Juhasz review wrap-up
We ordered a total of 4 soups, 4 main courses and one dessert. In addition we had some bottles of water and Coke. The final price of this dinner was around 21,000 Hungarian Forint. The price in itself is not terrifying, considering the fact that most main courses cost between 2700 and 5000 Forint, which is quite normal in Budapest in nicer restaurants.
As we left the restaurant we were all full and we had enjoyed our meal, but none of us left with the feeling that we long back to this place. I am not sure why, but I would much rather discover a new place than to return back to Busulo Juhasz.
If you are a tourist in town looking for a nice place to eat, then you should consider Busulo Juhasz. They have interesting meals on the menu, all with a little spice added to them, making this restaurant different from the very traditional Hungarian restaurants with the traditional courses you can find in all other places.
