Kosher Deli Budapest

Unfortunately, Budapest’s kosher restaurants aren’t known for serving delicious or nuanced dishes but most people who frequent them, of course, have no choice. Kosher Deli Restaurant, which opened in 2019, has quickly established itself as the better of Budapest’s only two dairy restaurants (the other is Tel Aviv Café around the corner). Kosher Deli belongs to Mazsihisz, the main faction of Budapest's Jews and the proprietor of the nearby Dohány Street Synagogue.

The ground floor consist of a small kosher grocery store with a pastry counter, while the restaurant occupies the upstairs area. Being a non-meat restaurant, there are egg-based breakfast dishes and a range of pizzas and pastas here. Far from memorable, but the scrambled eggs, the shakshuka, the margherita pizza, and the spaghetti aglio e olio are unlikely to disappoint.
