Fekete kutya (the black dog) is one of my new favorite places in the Jewish district. But the problem is that it’s far too crowded when I try to go there now!
This intimate bar-café is very central, full of good vibes and tucked in an alcove passage of Dob utca, just next to local dining and drinking hits such as Macesz Huszár bistro (check the related Spotted by Locals article).
When it opens, it is a calm retreat (and a nice place to work) but it gets busy at night as regular guests flood in to have a bite and a few drinks.
The bar has a small cozy corner with some books for those in need. On the other side, the wall is painted in a street art way. The bar has very cool terrace tables facing the street (and the few cars but you don’t really notice they are around).
The other big attraction is the food, that I found quite remarkable for such a place. The offer is simple but tasty (got much bigger recently adding a lunch deal for 1450Ft, 2 dishes on weekdays). Frankly I’m not a big fan of “cooked liver” but I tried the “sült maj” served with white bread and homemade pickles. Quite a treat! And there are more Hungarian tapas on the menu. On tap, they’ve got lots of nice Czech beers and fruity Hungarian syrups.
All that is nicely and warmly served. Love it!
