In the likely event that you've never frequented a Chinese restaurant designed as a hunting lodge, here is your chance to do so. Momotaro Ramen's former occupant decorated the space with taxidermy and animal antlers redolent of a Hungarian countryside estate, and, surprisingly, the current owner seems to find it a fitting theme to accent their Asian cuisine as well.
Food-wise, Momotaro Ramen has earned a place in the top tier of Chinese restaurants in Budapest. The long menu lists traditional dishes from all parts of China, but the specialty here is the dim sum dishes, which are complemented by an exhaustive list of ramen options (I know...), of which the chicken ramen is by far the most popular. From the dim sums, try the xiaolongbao, also known as soup dumplings, which are thin-layered steamed buns filled with soup and minced pork. Another standout is the Taiwanese-stlye savory turnip cake (luo bo gao), a spongy dim sum made of rice flour, daikon radish, and minced dried shrimp, that comes with sweet chili sauce.
Momotaro Ramen is currently the only restaurant in Budapest's downtown that serves authentic Chinese cuisine. For the others you will have to trek out to Budapest's Chinatown, a 15-minute cab drive from the city center. Also, Momotaro can be an ideal place to take a break from an arduous sightseeing schedule and quickly recharge, as it's located only minutes from the Parliament Building and Liberty Square, two popular tourist destinations.
