Ázsia Bt. – Exotic food shop

Ázsia Bt. is right next to the Great Market Hall, which means that every time I buy fresh produce, I sneak in to Ázsia Bt too. I have to check out what’s new in this exotic heaven.

Be prepared, because this shop offers so many things from so many places (and not only Asia!), that you might spend hours just wandering around looking at the shelves, daydreaming about cooking. I always check their tea repertory, featuring among others, my favorite ones: jasmine tea from China, Lapsang Souchong and also, different kinds of tea sets to serve these fantastic beverages.

When it comes to food, no matter if you’re looking pastas from Italy, rices of all kinds, quinoa, couscous, you will find it here! The same stands for your favorite sauce: Sriracha, soy sauce, fish sauce, ketchup? Do you prefer wasabi or some sweet mango chutney? It doesn’t matter because I’m pretty sure that you will find your match here. The only problem could be the abundance of options!

Ázsia Bt. also offers fresh exotic herbs like ginger and fresh dairy products like buffalo mozzarella and frozen ingredients such as shrimps.

Even if you’re not planning on cooking, you still can buy a Hungarian jam as souvenir or just some rice milk and chocolate for your sightseeing snack.
