If you're craving good sushi but don't feel like going for a long, sit-down dinner, head over to Sushi VIBES. It's a teeny-tiny counter service restaurant in a District 6 side street, within walking distance from Andrássy Avenue. The owner-chef lady, who hails from Fukuoka in southern Japan, set up shop in Budapest in 2018, after stints in the Netherlands and Germany. She imports both the nori (seaweed) and the rice from Japan.
As elsewhere in Budapest, the sushi isn't cheap here—a salmon maki roll and two pieces of nigiri sushi run €9—but still, less expensive than elsewhere. The best deal is the weekday lunch special, which includes two maki rolls and a miso soup for €5. Besides sushi, you could also try tebasaki (€4), which are Japanese bone-in chicken wings coated in a sweet and savory sauce and fried twice for a crispy exterior. They're delicious, and Sushi VIBES is the only place in Budapest who makes them.
