In the likely event that you've never been to a Chinese restaurant designed as a hunting lodge, here is your chance to do it. Momotaro Ramen's former occupant decorated the space with taxidermy and animal antlers redolent of a countryside estate's interior, and the current owner seems to find it a fitting theme to accent their Chinese cuisine as well.
Momotaro is among the top-tier Chinese restaurants in Budapest, serving traditional pan-Chinese dishes with a focus on dim sums. My go-to order here is the xiaolongbao soup dumplings, thin-skinned steamed buns filled with soup and minced pork (€8). Another standout is the Taiwanese-stlye savory turnip cake (luo bo gao; €6), a spongy nuggets made from rice flour, daikon radish, and minced dried shrimp. Of the long list of soups, which are light, Chinese-style noodle soups, rather than heavy ramens, I liked the chicken noodle soup (€5).
Momotaro is currently the one restaurant in Budapest's downtown that serves outstanding Chinese cuisine—for most of the others, you'll need to journey out to Budapest's Chinatown, a 15-minute cab ride from the city center—and it's also near several tourist attractions like the Parliament building and Liberty Square so ideal for recharging your batteries.
