Rengeteg was one of the first places I found in Budapest. This is a place that feels, it is almost breathing together with you. Rengeteg is a cozy dreamworld with very old, strange furniture, tons of teddy bears and calm French music in the background. You reach this wonder through a heavy, red iron door. Do not look for a menu, there is no such thing in here, the owner or the bartender will sit down to you for a bit and tell you how you can ask for anything you can imagine, well, with chocolate. It’s good to know in advance, however, that making the chocolate will take a while – it’s a slow process, so only go there if you have the time. While waiting, I love to dive into the old objects, toys of endless variety.
If you go there on a cold day at the busiest times, it may be a good idea to reserve a table for yourselves as the place is very small. If you don’t find a table, you can go behind the red curtains and find yourself in the cellar of another place named Élesztő. The two places have a sort of agreement, so feel free to sit at one of the tables close to the curtain.
As it is also a one-man business, the opening hours are sometimes tricky, so it’s better to check their Facebook page before heading out.
