#SoCS – Tasty, tasting

Linda G. Hill has given us the following prompt for her Stream of Consciousness Saturday post this week: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-tast-.” Find a word that contains “tast” and use it in your post. Enjoy!

During our recent trip to Budapest, I spread my wings a bit food wise and tasted some very tasty dishes. I have blogger extraordinaire, John Rieber, to thank for stretching my food sense of adventure. If you don’t know John, you really should visit his wonderful blog, https://johnrieber.com/. John writes entertaining posts about food, travel, movies and life in Hollywood. Here is his post about Budapest at night: https://johnrieber.com/2019/02/28/budapest-after-dark-tour-their-incredible-ruin-bars-hungary-nightlife-with-a-history/


I had this delicious mozzarella cheese and pesto toasted pita bread at Anna Cafe on Vasi Street, Budapest. Vaci Street is one of the main pedestrian thoroughfares, and possibly the most famous street, in Central Budapest.

This was my breakfast on two of our mornings in Budapest. A giant pretzel with paprika flavoured curd cheese and Hungarian beef sausage flavoured with paprika. So delicious!


For dinner on our second evening in the city, I had traditional Hungarian goulash at a Hungarian restaurant. It was so tasty.


Mr Fox had chicken breast in a paprika sauce. I didn’t taste his, but he says it was delicious.


On night three, we went to an Italian restaurant. Mr Fox had the delicious salmon dish featured above. I had mushroom risotto which was amazing. I couldn’t eat it all as I had a tummy ache after eating far to much curd and goat’s cheese that day. I am lucky I wasn’t sick.


Budapest is an amazing city and food is awesome. I recommend it as a holiday destination.

  1. I see that you tasted many unique dishes during your recent trip to Budapest, Robbie. I’m glad you took photos of them so you could share. When I travel, I don’t think of sharing the food I eat, so I don’t have photos of them. I should start doing that.

  2. First and foremost, thank you so much for sharing the link to my story…I love to travel, and as much as I love the history, architecture and art of an area, I also love the food! We learn so much by seeing and tasting what they eat there…and we did indeed try the goulash, spaetzel and Wiener Schnitzel as well…and brough home three bags of their incredibly rich Paprika! Terrific photos!

    1. Thank you, John. I am so glad that I have learned to share about the food in places, thanks to you and your blog. I think you were a bit more adventurous than me, but I made bit strides forward. I brought home two bags of paprika too and a jar of local honey.

  3. You have reminded me of a wonderful and small Hungarian restaurant that used to be in NJ in the l970s.
    The owner would give you enough on a plate to feed a family of four! And if you said you were finished when you plate was half empty he would say; “No, no you are not!” with a smile on his face and walk away!
