What’s true for Budapest bars (see the Müszi article) is also true for new restaurants and eateries opening up in Budapest: there are so many of them that even a Budapest foodie can have a hard time!
Recently I developed a soft spot for Sonka Arcok’s daily menu, on lovely Egyetem tér (near Táskásradió espresszó, check the article).
Its polished interior with warm and darker wood colours is a bit reminiscent of Spain, that seems to be an influence here.
In fact, as you’ll notice entering the restaurant, nice pieces of hams (some of them Hungarian, some of them Spanish) are on display by the door.
However don’t be mistaken, if Sonka arcok serves sandwiches and tapas, it has more in store than just pork.
The menu card is truly diversified offering a nice glimpse of what Budapest new cuisine (as embodied by chef Tamás Bereznay) is all about.
What you really need to try is the daily menu on weekdays: it’s a great value for 3 courses and it comes with a homemade lemonade! On nice days, you can enjoy it on the tiny of terrace on the square.
