We once read in the popular magazine Funzine that the best place to taste Hungarian food is in the home of real Hungarians. The magazine therefore encouraged their readers to find a Hungarian who could invite them home to lunch/dinner somewhere. Challenge accepted!
We found a family who took the challenge and now you are invited to visit them. The family lives on the Buda side in a quite traditional Hungarian flat. As you visit them they will prepare traditional Hungarian food for you, give you some wine and other things to drink and they will do their very best to give you insight into how real Hungarians live. The husband and wife are both 50+ and as traditional Hungarians in this age they do not speak English very well… but trust me, they do their best to make themselves understood and to understand what you have to say.
The program lasts for about 2 hours and during this time you will be served three courses, get drinks and maybe some other things. The program is free, but you are encouraged to give a present to the family as you leave.
1) The family has two cats, but they are scared to death of guests, so you will probably not see them at all.
2) The father in the house loves rock’n roll from the 70s and 80s. If you know some rock’n roll songs from this period and know how to play the guitar, just ask, and you can all sing along!!
3) The program can be arranged whenever… you decide!
