Bosnyák téri hentes

This butcher shop (hentes) next to the entrance of the Bosnyák Market isn't the best sausage vendor in Budapest, but it surely offers a local experience. If you decide to trek out to Zugló, a residential neighborhood a bit outside the city center, try going on a Saturday morning when the farmers' market is bursting with locals and with fresh produce.

Once you’re done in the market, drop by the butcher shop for juicy, freshly made pork knuckles or roasted sausages. All you need is a dollop of mustard and a thick slice of bread for this rustic lunch treat that will set you back by about €5. Don't wait for one of the high-top tables to clear; instead, make it a communal meal by standing elbow-to-elbow with locals.
