The Budapest Great Market Hall wasn’t on our original sightseeing plans but we needed to buy some magnets and they’re cheapest at the market.

It’s the largest and oldest indoor market in Budapest.  Originally built in 1897 to support the growing merchant community that only a building this large could support without spreading the market too far.

On the top floor I found Csapi Falatozo which sells several dishes of Budapest local fare

Since I hadn’t tried Budapest’s Goulash yet. I figured this was the place I’d try it.

The Great Market is a good place to visit if you need to find some souvenirs for your Budapest trip.  Unlike most malls, the prices fluctuate greatly from store to store so shop around.  The goulash was really good and worth trying.  If I’m in Budapest again, I’ll drop by and try another dish, another restaurant, or just the same dish again.

Tummy Points: 3.5 out of 5
