A few days ago we wrote an article about the soupbar between Kalvin square and Fovam square in Budapest. The soupbar turned so popular and therefore the owners expanded and has now opened a pastabar only a few hundred metres from the original soupbar. This time pasta is being served!
I first noticed the soupbar because of the crowd standing outside the place during its opening time. How did I notice the pastabar? In the same way! The pastabar has only been open for 6 weeks, but it has already turned into a success, at least based on what I have seen and on what the girl selling me the pasta told me. The concept is the same as with the soupbar, except from the fact that the Pastabar has 4 quite large tables located outside the bar making it easier for their visitors to sit down and eat their pasta in quietness and peace. If they get bored they are allowed to write greetings and make drawings on the tables which are covered with paper, so maybe this is the place where you can show the world the Da Vinci or Michelangelo hiding on your inside.
Pasta of the Day examples
I guess the answer is quite obvious, pasta! As I visited the Pastabar and ate there they had the following four pastas on the menu:
- Mustar ezredes (chicken, cream, mustard, honey, peas)
- O.G. (chicken, tomato, garlic, wine, basil)
- Momofuku (chicken, carrot, leek, sesame seed, soya sauce, chili)
- Bolognai (turkey, tomato, carrot, wine, oregano, basil)
The prices are easy to remember, because all pastas cost 990 Hungarian Forint. You can buy drinks to accompany the pasta if you are thirsty and ½ liter of Coca Cola cost 280 Forint.
If you want to eat the food right away you will find forks on the spot, but if you want to take the food away they have this special handle making it extremely easy to care the box with pasta with you.
In the vicinity of Kalvin ter today? Why not have some pasta for lunch?
