Buja Disznó(k) [‘Lewd Pig(s)’] is a deceptively simple yet excellent kitchen on the gallery of Hold Street Market Hall that’s all about fried pork. Its menu is charmingly to-the-point: you can have fried pork, pig’s ears with potato salad, or “szalontüdő”, a traditional Hungarian food made of the lung and heart of a pig with bread dumpling. Just pick the option you like (make sure to ask for a glass of “almafröccs” – apple juice with soda – to go with it, then look for an empty table somewhere on the gallery while you’re waiting for it to be made.
The fried pork (similar though not quite identical to the Austrian Wiener Schnitzel) is surprisingly large and probably the best I’ve eaten in Budapest, and comes with potato salad on a charming, completely flat wooden plate. Make sure you don’t ignore the bit of bone placed on top: you can carve or nibble some really tasty bits off it, too!
Note that the closing times given here are when the kitchen closes; the restaurant itself is open for another half an hour.
