Soul Food Budapest

Since 2014, it's possible to get a taste of New Orleans in Budapest. If you have a hankering for po' boy, jambalaya, or gumbo, head to Soul Food, a tiny, fast casual restaurant on Kazinczy Street, in the center of Budapest’s party district. I most enjoyed the seafood gumbo (€8), the signature Louisiana stew packing shrimp, clams, sausage, tomato, celery, onions, and plenty of white rice. The sandwiches are also good, including the pulled pork (€8), and the signature po’boy (€9), which comes studded with shrimp. You can wash everything down with a local draft beer.

Being in the heart of it all, Soul Food's customers consist mainly of tourists and price points are somewhat inflated, but not unreasonable.

We visit all places incognito, pay for our own meals and drinks, and write independent reviews.
