Falafel Sziget – Hummus paradise!

Last year as I was walking near Blaha Lujza square, I noticed a newly opened hummus place that I went to check out right away with my pals.

And well, the result was so convincing that I’ve kept coming every other day ever since!

I guess I can safely claim that Falafel Sziget is the most authentic and best hummus / falafel joint in Budapest! (Ok, Hummus bar – see the article here –  is not bad but this is even better!).

Maher, who’s the manager and the main cook, is a Palestinian who’s been around in Budapest for years and speaks Hungarian perfectly. Delicious chickpea recipes have absolutely no secret for him!

For instance, he made me discover what Foul is (mashed fava beans with a slight fermented taste). If you add that to a layer of hummus, it’s called Mszabbaha and it tastes fabulous!

It’s also at Maher’s that I got to like falafel for real. They are always freshly made and crispy here. And of course, the hummus is to die for. But another of my favorite is the plain falafel sandwich (served in a pitta bread), for just 600 Ft. Best price in town!

All those dishes are served quickly, on the Ikea tables of that little Middle-Eastern canteen. Enjoy!
