Part burger joint, part sports bar, part craft beer bar, Kandalló wears many hats. The burgers at this popular joint within Budapest's Jewish Quarter are among the best you'll find in the city (although I wish they used smaller and squishier buns). From the dozen or so options, I recommend you stick to the classic cheeseburger or, if you'd like to splurge, try the grilled foie gras-studded "Kandalló" burger.

The 16 beer taps feature leading Hungarian microbreweries, including Monyo, Horizont, Brew Your Mind, and Reketye. On Sunday evenings, Kandalló becomes a haven for NFL fans, displaying games on big screens; advance booking is a must if you'd like to join the throngs of local American football fans.
