The latest development of the Budapest eating-out scene is almost as fascinating as a good TV series (actually much tastier): there is barely a week without a new restaurant or bar opening-up!
Funky Pho is no exception to the golden BP (Budapest) rule. It’s a lovely place that belongs to the Budapest street-food eating-out experience of the moment. It’s all about Asian, Phô (Vietnamese soup) and Thai (check Pad Thai wok bar) these days!
The Hungarian capital has a good dozen Vietnamese eateries now. But Funky Pho is special! It’s a tiny joint, strategically located in the city centre by Jókai and Liszt Ferenc tér. There’s a few tables inside but you never have to wait too long.
The couple that decided to open the place traveled the world for years before ending up in Vietnam, where they fell in love with the local gastronomy and attended cooking classes.
At Funky Pho not only the phô are delightful and nicely served, but the grill salads and the spring-rolls are also a treat! Either way you can go for pork, beef, tofu, chicken and more, where Korean, Japanese and Chinese inspirations are getting mixed. Now the place has a much bigger offer including 100% vegan dishes (phô, salads, curries…) and very cool breweries’ beers and wines.
What they serve is all fresh, quick, healthy, prepared right under your nose & eyes. And they do ecological packing!
For some eye-candy, Funky Pho is tastily decorated with playful Asian street art.
