Kuszkusz – Conscious street food

So now you have already learnt a Hungarian word. Kuszkusz simply means (and is pronounced) couscous, and now you may have guessed what type of food is served here! Couscous, of course! But if you ever thought that it’s such a boring food, you’ll change your mind after tasting these plates. András Berényi, a well-known chef in Budapest, has opened this little street food bar with his brother Gábor. The co-workers are Zsófi (chef) and Cili (pastry chef) and they prepare the dishes and cakes.

I ‘eat the street’ several days a week and appreciate a lot those places where fast eating doesn’t mean junk food. Think about a kitchen with the quality standards of a 1st class restaurant but where you still get your plate in 5 minutes and can also take it away. You have arrived to Kuszkusz. You can choose from several type of plates: with or without meat, even vegan, and there is a daily soup as well. Try the tea also, a nice hibiscus flavoured warm drink without sweetener.

When they say ‘conscious’, they really mean it: the meat of the delicious veal meatballs come from a small farm on the South of Hungary where the animals live free-range. Other ingredients are also from local producers. They don’t use additives and the packages are all reusable or biodegradable.
