Taste the Goose Liver burger in McDonald’s!

Are you eager to taste some Hungarian goose liver while in Budapest? You don’t have to run to a gourmet restaurant and spend lots of money. Instead, you can simply visit a local McDonald’s restaurant and order a new burger, the Goosey Gustav burger.

It is important to know that the Goosey Gustav burger is a temporary burger, meaning that it cannot be found on the permanent menu. As a result, you will most likely not find this if you come to Budapest in a year or more. However, those who will visit Budapest in the coming months will have the chance to enjoy this “gourmet-burger” in McDonald’s.

Goosey Gustav in McDonald's... burger with real Hungarian goose liver.

The price of the Goosey Gustav sandwich is 2000 HUF (6 Euro). If you want to buy it in a menu, the price is 2700 HUF, which then includes fries and a drink as well.

What is the Goosey Gustav judgment?

If you want a gourmet meal in Budapest, don’t go to McDonald’s (I guess that doesn’t come as a shock). But, if you want to simply taste some goose liver and go home and brag about how you ate goose liver in Hungary, this can actually get the job done.

The taste of the burger is nice, and it is easy to enjoy, even for those who are skeptic about the taste of goose liver. The dressing is nice, and the meat used is also tasty. Some will complain and say that the authentic goose liver taste has been liquidated (meaning that it doesn’t have a strong enough taste), but many people will enjoy this burger exactly for that reason.

You can buy the Goosey Gustav with sweet fries.

You can decide to purchase the Goosey Gustav with sweet fries instead of traditional fries. It costs you more, but it is absolutely worth it. If you haven’t tasted the sweet potato fries yet, this is a great chance. If you have tasted it, you probably understand why we recommend it so warmly!

A visit to La Pampa in Budapest

Last week, we had the chance to enjoy a magnificent dinner in La Pampa Budapest. We hadn’t been to the restaurants since its opening almost 10 years ago, and discovering that they recently moved into a new location made us want to pay the restaurant a visit again. So, what was La Pampa like? Is La Pampa worth a visit?

If you do not know anything about La Pampa, let us first introduce it to you as a steakhouse in central Budapest. It can be found along a busy road (though you do not notice that at all once you are on the inside), and very close to the metro station Arany Janos utca. This is one of the most elegant restaurants in Budapest as it has a very nice interior, and it is perfect for an important business meeting, just as well as a nice dinner for a group of friends, or for a group of men who wants to see who can eat a 550 gram steak in the shortest amount of time.

What we ate in La Pampa

During our meal in La Pampa, we decided to start slowly with a Carpaccio de Lomo. This is “finely cut Angus steak drizzled with a chimichurri sauce .” I have got to say that it was really tasty and nice, and especially the Hungarian pepper (paprika) combined with the rocket salad was delicious.

But, I almost forget, after placing your order you are always served a mild starter, a fresh piece of bread with some spicy butter, freshened up with some tomatoes. In some restaurants, this is freezing cold and impossible to apply to the bread, but here it wasn’t only soft, it was very tasty and nice as well.

When it was time for the main course to come, we ate a T-Bone steak and a normal rump-steak. The meat was very nicely prepared, and especially the tenderness of the T-Bone steak was amazing. No wonder why people long to eat such steaks during a visit to a steakhouse like La Pampa.

You get hungry watching this, don't you?
You get hungry watching this, don’t you?

In addition to the steaks, we also had some green pepper sauce, some onion rings, and some potato croquette. These are favorites of ours, and we loved them. One thing that has changed since the last time we visited La Pampa, is that they have changed the onion rings, making them even better, crispier, and tastier than they were before.

Just like in other steakhouses, you can ask to have your steak prepared in the way you prefer. In the end, a small cow is placed on your stake to show you the preparation level. This is a cool little thing that especially children find to be funny as they can play with the small cows before/while/after eating!

A black cow means well done in La Pampa.

The desserts in La Pampa are easy to like, and the prices are all around 3-4 Euro. In other words, it is easy to finish your meal with a brownie, a Creme Brulé, or maybe with a chocolate souffle with mint taste? We tasted the latter, and it was like eating After Eight. In other words, a perfect treat for those who like the combination of chocolate and mint.

The interior of La Pampa

There is no chance to sit outside as you visit La Pampa, but they do have some very nice tables by the windows which will give you a nice view towards the street and what’s going on out there. But, La Pampa also has some magnificent rooms with space for individual guests or larger groups, giving the restaurant a total capacity for around 160 guests. But, do not forget to reserve your table in La Pampa as it often ends up completely packed during the evenings.

Modern, beautiful, and stylish interior.

Should you visit La Pampa?

La Pampa is a very nice restaurant with high quality food, well-skilled waiters, and a very nice interior. It is good pick for a nicer dinner on any evening, and it can also be used for groups who want to eat a dinner together in a private room with space for 40-50 people, or just someone at a stag-party who want to eat a solid beef before the party goes on.

The price level is just what one would expect in a steakhouse. The starters vary in price between 5 and 10 Euro, while the main courses vary between 10 and 60 Euro. The desserts all cost around 4-5 Euro.

We had a great time in La Pampa and it is a restaurant that we can warmly recommend if you want to dine in a similar way when you come to Budapest!

A visit to GoodBar GoodBurger in Budapest

Are you looking for a good place to eat a hamburger in Budapest? Maybe you will walk by the place named GoodBurger as you walk between Ferenciek square and Kalvin square in Budapest. Is this a place worth visiting? We have visited GoodBar GoodBurger in Budapest, and here are some quick thoughts.

First of all, the restaurant is located in the very center of Budapest. It is very easy to find, even though it isn’t located in Vaci utca (the main shopping street of Budapest). The street on which it can be found is a beautiful and nice street, it has great atmosphere, and very little car traffic due to limitations and regulations related to who can actually drive there.

A good location is nice, but it isn’t all. But, if you walk by this place and consider a quick visit, is it worth it?

Fantastic service in the restaurant

As we visited the restaurant, we were received and welcomed by a really wonderful waiter. She was smiling all the time, and very helpful. She was polite, nice, and made sure that we were able to enjoy every minute.

The menu is packed with popular meals, making sure that this is a place you can easily visit with the family as you can find lots of burgers and other popular meals in the restaurant.

What about the quality of the food?

During our visit to GoodBar GoodBurger in Budapest, we ordered a hamburger, a tortilla, some sweet potato chips and also some onion rings. These are all popular courses, so great meals to taste if you want to get a feeling about the food in the restaurant.

The burger in GoodBurger Budapest
The burger in GoodBurger Budapest

The hamburger we were served was a tasty and nice hamburger, with a fresh salad next to it. This is what we would call a correct hamburger. It wasn’t a legendary burger that would make us return to the restaurant day after day, but it was still a fresh and nice burger that should make most family members happy if they get to taste it.

The tortilla was just as tasty as the hamburger, and to make it different from most other restaurants, they added a layer of cheese on the outside of the tortilla which was then grilled, making it really crispy and salty on the outside. That was a fantastic taste, and it was really nice to eat. The only minus was that your hands got greasy holding the cheesy tortilla.

The side-dishes, both the sweet potato chips and the onion rings were nice! Normally restaurants serve you sweet potato fries, but here they prepared them in chips form. I would prefer the fries version as they have more taste, but it was still a nice side-dish. The onion rings were nice as well!

All in all about GoodBurger

The prices are nice, the service is fantastic, the food is good, and the location is superb. This might not be the best restaurant in Budapest, and it probably doesn’t have the best burger either, but it should still serve you well as you look for a place to eat a nice lunch or have a fine dinner in Budapest.

The Mongolian Barbecue in Budapest

Trofea Grill is a famous restaurant in Budapest and probably the best all-you-can-eat restaurant in town. But, before Trofea Grill came to be, the Mongolian Barbecue was the original version of the same concept. The Mongolian Barbecue is still around, but is it as good as Trofea Grill?

While there are six different Trofea Grill restaurants in Budapest, there is only one Mongolian Barbecue, and it is located on the Buda side, not far from the Deli Railway station and the Mom Park. It is cheaper than Trofea Grill by 15-20%, making it more attractive for those on a budget. But, is it worth saving money by visiting this restaurant instead?

The interior in the Mongolian Barbecue
The interior in the Mongolian Barbecue

After visiting Trofea Grill several times, the first impression of the Mongolian Barbecue is that it looks a bit more old-fashioned and tired. The interior isn’t as shiny and modern as Trofea Grill. But, who cares about the interior if the food is fantastic?

The food in the Mongolian Barbecue

It is important to know that the name of the restaurant comes because of the Mongolian presence on Hungarian soils decades ago, not because of the food in the restaurant. In other words, this is not a restaurant for those who want to eat Mongolian food!

In the restaurant, you can eat and drink unlimited for a set price. The starters have to be ordered from the waiter (included in the price of course), and it will be served at the table. When you are ready to eat some meat, you have to leave the table and grab whatever you want to eat by yourself. You later hand this over to the chef who prepares it in front of you. There are quite a lot of salads and other side-dishes available, in addition to the meat!

Delicious food in the Mongolian Barbecue

I have nothing to complain about when it comes to the meat, nor the side-dishes. But, it is impossible to visit this restaurant without comparing it to Trofea Grill. And if I do so, I miss the finished dishes, meaning those dishes already prepared which you can eat without grilling it. But, after all, this is a barbecue restaurant, so it shouldn’t be expected… but again, Trofea Grill is the problem!

As you finish eating, you are probably interested in having some dessert. Here you get to pick from the menu again, but unfortunately, the desserts were disappointing to us. There were four to choose from, and neither of them gave us a big “kick”.

All in all about the Mongolian Barbecue

The price level of the restaurant varies between 12-17 Euro per person. Considering the fact that you can eat and drink as much as you want, the price is really nice. But, if you compare it to Trofea Grill, I would rather visit the latter, simply because of the much nicer look on the interior, and most importantly, a much wider selection of starters, main courses, and also desserts.

A visit to Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in Budapest

A few weeks ago I got to visit the quite newly opened Jamie Oliver Pizzeria in Budapest. I read somewhere that it is the first Jamie Oliver pizzeria in Europe, but I am not completely sure if that is true or not.

I am a big fan of Italian food, and I could eat pizza every day without getting bored of it. But, I am not always a big fan of Italian food in Italian restaurants. Why? It often feels as if I am eating tomatoes, and I miss the spices that makes me satisfied. So, how did I enjoy my stay in Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in Budapest?

Jamie Oliver’s Pizza in Budapest

The pizzeria is located in the Gozsdu Court, a fantastic area in Budapest with lots of restaurants and lots of things to do. So, the location couldn’t be better. The interior of the restaurant is modern, and as we visited the restaurant we listened to hits from the 90’s quite loudly in the restaurant. The volume was a bit louder than what I would prefer, but at least I enjoyed the music, so that made up for the volume.

We visited the pizzeria during lunch time and arrived very early (meaning there were almost no other guests in the restaurant). The waiters were all extremely friendly, and it felt like they were really proud to work there, and they did their best to satisfy the customers!

We ended up ordering one lunch menu and one lasagne. The lunch menu consisted of a pizzetta (a pizza with a different shape), a salad next to it, and a chocolate souffle for dessert (they didn’t call it chocolate souffle, but it sure tasted and looked like one).

The main courses in Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria

The pizzetta was a nice and tasty pizza. I am a big fan of the American style, meaning a thick crust, but I have no problem eating the thin Italian crusty pizzas either. This was totally fine. Not a pizza I would die to eat again, but I had no complaints against it. The tomato sauce was okay, and the rest of the ingredients were nice. But, the best with the entire course was the very nice and fresh salad served next to the pizzetta.

I have told myself that eating lasagne in restaurants is dangerous. It never tastes as good as home, but since we visited a Jamie Oliver restaurant, we thought we would give it a try anyway.

Yet again, the salad was nice and fresh. But, the lasagne had lots of problems. It was a bit burnt, and it was floating in tomato sauce. It was simply a big tomato overdose, and we didn’t manage to finish it at all. Maybe this is the way a lasagne is supposed to be, but if it is, then I am not a big fan of the real lasagne (only the one we make at home).

The dessert in Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria

The dessert was something I would call a chocolate souffle, served with ice cream, and some other snacks. All in all, this was the highlight of the meal. The chocolate souffle was made of real chocolate (dark chocolate), making it a bit more bitter than in most other restaurants where they rather use “cheaper” chocolate, but that caused us no trouble.

The highlight of our meal in Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in Budapest

All in all, we were satisfied with some parts of our lunch experience in Budapest, but it could have been a much better one. The lasagne wasn’t the only problem. As I mentioned earlier, the service was splendid, and everything was fine. But, we hoped this would be a fast lunch, especially considering that the restaurant was almost empty, but instead we spent more than 65 minutes in the restaurant. That is a long time for someone who wants to eat a lunch.  It should then be said that we placed our order at once.

Again, this was a big minus for us that it took so much time to get the food on the table during lunchtime, especially as this might be a place business people would consider a fast lunch between some meetings.

That was our stay in Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in Budapest

This was the story of our first visit to the Jamie Oliver Pizzeria in Budapest. This is a very subjective article, based on our experience, and we are no gastro experts, nor nothing. But, we like good food, and that is the foundation of this article.
