I plan to travel to Budapest in August, any nice sites to visit . What are some of the must- haves in terms of food. Shopping?
Well there are nice suggestions but I think New York Cafe is a bit commercial plus super expensive and the other tourist attractions - however true that you must have see them. If that's what you're looking for I'm sorry. If you're looking for the local treasures, check for sure any of the BATHS. I mean Budapest is like the capitol of the thermal baths and spas. The city is actually built on underground thermal waters. http://tinyurl.com/n7covkr here is a collection of the best and historical ones. About food, there is a label name of hungarian specialities: Hungaricum Food Hungaricums are: goose liver, goulash, fishsoup, sausages (Gyulai, Csabai), filled cabbage.

You can try "Lecsó", it's made from pepper, tomato and onion. Sometimes they made it with eggs or bacon, but you ask it without. Also if you eat fish, try the Fishsoup! The others are just snacks and desserts. here is a collection of the main veggie restaurants of Budapest: http://tinyurl.com/mklfgf3 over 6 years ago
