Top Five Burgers in Budapest – 2016

For me, there is no better way to begin any exploration of Budapest than with its food and beers. So the first thing I did after booking a flight was to start my research about the local cuisine. I was particularly interested in the local Burgers, Beers and Traditional food. I did discover that Budapest developed enormously over the last 25 years and has become a gastronomic heaven that will delight foodies – particularly those with a desire for meat-heavy dishes.
My main purpose was to find the best burgers in town but not those who considered to be expensive and super prestigious.
So if your next trip is to Budapest and you are a burger seeker like me, check out my list below of the top five flavorite burgers that I would love to try myself.
