BUDAPEST RESTAURANT: Classic & Contemporary Hungarian Cuisine

Written by The Editors




Taking the cupcake and its kin to the next level, The Boombox Bakeshop is one of the gems of London’s Old East Village. Creativity is expressed in every corner and in every deliciously decadent bite.

The Scene

Budapest Restaurant is a local gem with a richly Bohemian and Gypsy-style ambience. The décor is a mix of traditional designs, embroidery, lace, layering, fringe, textures, prints and photographs. Red velvet valances and curtained tables are complemented by comfortable armchairs. A charming canopied seasonal streetside patio offers a sheltered view of downtown. Conveniently located in the hotel district, the restaurant is a short walk to the Delta Armouries, DoubleTree by Hilton and RBC Place London.


Menu Highlights

The Old World European look and feel is matched by a deliciously authentic menu. The chef is an innovator, adding interesting contemporary twists to the dishes and the plating of traditional recipes, retaining the heart and soul of the Hungarian classics. Confident, expansive cooking keeps traditional Hungarian flavours front and centre.
The passionate kitchen takes an enticing handful of top quality ingredients and allows them to shine. This is Marika Hayek’s lasting legacy. Enjoy classic offerings flavoured prominently by woodsy, smoky Hungarian paprika — dishes that are precisely prepared and expertly flavoured.
