What's Offbeat?

Parts of Budapest have been deeply transformed by mass tourism, making it difficult for visitors to discover the side of the city locals know, places they go. Offbeat is here to help. It's a curated but not sanitized restaurant and city guide, also featuring stories about (usually) inspiring locals and food-related cultural trends. Enjoy your stay!

I'm doing my best to put out useful, well-researched, and unbiased articles. This is why, for example, I never accept free meals or money in exchange for coverage. But this also means I must rely on readers to support my work. Your contributions go a long way. Thank you!
