Any major metropolis worth its salt should have a reputable food market. And Budapest’s Great Market Hall is no exception. As the Hungarian capital’s largest and oldest indoor market, this spectacular collection of food vendors offers a taste for any palate. Looking for seriously delicious charcuterie? How about a taste of the classic Hungarian snack Lángos? Or maybe grab a bag of the country’s famous, smoky paprika to bring back home? Hungarian food writer and cookbook author Zsófia Mautner takes us on a tour of all that and more at this one-of-a-kind urban foodie mecca.
