Before lunch, stroll around Liberty Square; the gateway between the Basilica and Parliament. The square is controversial and hated by many, as it’s home to one of the only remaining Soviet monuments. Then, on to October 6th Street, a food hub
full of restaurants where you can grab lunch, a snack or dessert, no matter what your cravings. Fancy a Sloppy Joe burger, or vegan pasta dish on a street overflowing with history? This is the spot for you. And don’t miss adding strudel tasting to your one day in Budapest travel itinerary, and learning about the secrets of traditional strudel making! Head to the First Strudel House of Pest Cafe & Restaurant, housed in a historic building, where you can taste strudel with various fillings; such as cottage cheese, chicken, salmon, plum, cherry and apple. Or if you like marzipan, be sure to check out Szamos
. In the 1930s a young apprentice confectioner, Mátyás Szamos, mastered the art of making a pretty rose from the almondy, sweets that are now known as marzipan. Today, Szamos is home to high quality crafted marzipan which comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, with the rose being the most famous. Anyone with a sweet tooth will love marzipan bonbons covered with dark chocolate.
