Ice Cream Coffee, Meatology & Shakshuka | Budapest Day 3

Caught up with Day 1 and Day 2?

Vinyl and Wood – Wesselényi u. 23

GET LOST IN WONDERLAND! We found Vinyl and Wood on TripAdvisor as one of the top places to eat in Budapest, as well being in the cheap eats section. Luckily for us, Vinyl and Wood is only a 5 minute walk away from where we are staying, so it was the perfect spot to have coffee and something light to start up our day!

Viny & Wood is not only a coffee shop, they are a young, creative design start-up. Their mission and main motivation is to introduce the idea of recycling into the design world. Once you step in, you can see some of the products they are selling: wood phone cases, sunglasses and even funky socks. They have unique art work all over their walls, their signs and designs are made from vinyls.

The food was simple, what you’d expect sandwiches, pastries and a few extras. James went for his regular cappuccino, while I opted for something a little different, ice coffee with a twist of ice cream. This might actually be normal but it’s the first I’ve ever had it. It was a treat and the ice cream just made the coffee even creamier and colder. Perfect for when it was already 26 degrees outside, and you can’t beat having all of this from under £10!

We were set and ready to start our long and exciting day ahead of us. Read all about it on our travel post.

Meatology – Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út 15c

After a nice long Segway tour across Buda and Pest, we headed to another cheap eats find right next to where our last stop of our tour was. Meatology offers a range of burgers and other meat dishes, and all for such low prices! Jessica’s pork belly sandwich and my Hungarian sausages and flat bread were just amazing, filling big holes of appetite which we had built up Segwaying just before!

The service was top notch, and again so cheap. The bill came to just over £15. We love this place!

HummusBar – Október 6. u. 19

Our last meal of the day was perhaps one of the healthiest we’ve had all holiday. Another cheap eats restaurant, Hummus Bar, offers everything from hummus plates to these Shakshuka bowls. We’ve had these a couple of times in London, and even made them at home so we knew we were in for something that we loved! Jessica’s all green bowl with feta cheese and my tomato based bowl with sausage were both so hearty, filling and went down perfectly with the bread which was included in the price.

It was another fantastic meal here in Budapest, which we have found to have an abundance of great options at great prices! We have a couple of very exciting meals planned for tomorrow, our final day in Budapest. So come back here tomorrow to see what they are!

    Oh myyy god, this all looks so GOOD. The food from the meat place sounds and looks amazing – especially the tomato sausage dish at the bottom. I do wish your posts would stop making me so hungry when I'm about to go to bed!

    Wow, I'm so impressed with the recycling ethos of the Vinyl and Wood cafe, I definitely think that it's something we need to explore in today's (often very wasteful) society, and a cafe is a perfect setting for introducing people to it! I'm not surprised that this featured so highly on the Trip Advisor recommendations! Feta cheese is one of my biggest weaknesses, so Jess's all-green bowl looks incredible to me! Thanks for sharing, it's lovely to keep up with your adventures!Abbey 😘 http://www.abbeylouisarose.co.uk
