A taste of Balaton in Budapest
Posted by Réka Szentesi · Jul 17, 2014

We have found a lovely little gastro shop in the heart of Budapest.

Unique in the city, this place offers the highest quality of Balaton’s gastronomy in order to spread the idea of the so called gastro revolution, which is taking place in the towns and villages of Balaton.

Balaton Ízlelő, which means „savor of Balaton” was started as a family enterprise. The owners have long been searching for the best producers at Balaton, and now their passion made the shop alive.

Among the products you will find handcrafted delicates, among them dairy and meat products, wines, oils, vinegars, sweets, syrups, jams and different spices. Possible to taste before choosing, I had a piece of old sheep cheese, and let me tell you, that was among the best I ever had. If you feel like, you can sit down and have a homemade sandwich, cheese plate or a coffee. Among these special gastro products they sell ceramics and even some beauty products, also handcrafted in Balaton.

What makes the place really special (if all these were not enough), tasting events are held every now and then, where not only their products can be tasted, but you can meet the producers as well.

Truly a great place, I will surely become a regular customer.

Address: Budapest, 5th District, Királyi Pál Street 10.
