(Part) of my family came to visit us in Budapest for 10 days or so. I had my list of things to do, restaurants to try, etc, ready to go and it’s safe to say we kept pretty busy. I won’t go into great detail in the next few posts as I am waay behind on posting.
But Frici Papa’s… I would have been ok if I didn’t return to this traditional Hungarian joint ever again – but apparently everyone else was especially keen on it (to this day I still think they were only raving about it to get my goat).We did some first-night sightseeing, taking a ride on the adorable Metro Line 1.Court grabbed my camera whenever she could. She heard this a lot: “yes you can use it but guard it with your freaking life and DON’T drop it”. We tuckered them out so good that we could literally NOT wake them up if we tried. Bright sun shining in, coffee grinder right in their ear, clanging and banging…the whole works kept on snoring away.
Ah such a nice gift to receive from back home!!
Brie cheese + almost 100% fruit jam from the countryside markets. So delish.
This little goon…
My little sisters are not so little anymore!Fat Mama Eatery – they smoke the meats in a special oven to give it a lovely flavor and tenderness like you wouldn’t believe.
More evening walks along the river.
The parliament’s exterior by night…The parliament’s interior by day…This old cowpoke maneuvering the European city streets like a boss…Husband ruining the pic with his dweeby pose (not uncommon).
One second after scolding him :P Haha. Gave papa an idea…Forcing everyone to try our favorite greasy gyro joint. We love it a little too much.
Seriously so mouth-watering and it is only a couple bucks.
Corso Gourmet – a beautiful restaurant at the top of a gourmet grocery store. Food is average but view is stunning.
Introducing the girls to The Sweet – one of those dessert shops that wins you over the moment you set foot inside it’s adorable storefront.
You can dress her up but …The adventures continue!
