The street-food wave has hit Budapest stylishly. This wok bar is just another example of a trend that keeps growing.
Since I lived in Bangkok (a couple of years ago), I’ve developed a soft spot for Siamese food.
I already published an article on one of my Budapest findings: check my Kis Parázs article, but with that place being crowded most of the time, I had to look for something else: I’m glad PadThai wok bar and PadThai Wok2go opened since then.
Well actually, I’m talking about 5 different places sharing the same concept (check their website to locate them).
One is located by the Basilica, Október 6. utca 4, another one is in Gozsdu udvar (read the related Gozsdu udvar article) which is actually open late till midnight and the third place in the center is on Egyetem tér (my favorite).
That’s where I go when I’m in a rush, especially late at night, to get Asian food prepared in 10 minutes, right in front of me, and served in a box to go (or ask for a real plate to avoid waste!) for a decent fare.
Ok, it’s nothing special for those that already know this world concept (you choose a “basis”, adding ingredients as you wish). However, I tried a place like that in Riga and it wasn’t as nice!
Obviously eating on the go doesn’t mean you shouldn’t spend a penny on the design. The owners of those 2 joints got that, so congrats to them!
