Located on the second floor of the Grand Market, the Fakanal is a part-waitserviced, part-cafeteria restaurant serving up hearty Hungarian fare. We grabbed a table and then proceeded with trays to the cafeteria area, where a number of hot dishes could be ordered. The specialty here is the goulash, one version of which is like a heavy stew with beef, carrots, and potatoes. Even the smaller-sized bowl of this, with a couple of pieces of bread selected from a basket, was enough for a tasty lunch. There was also a bowl of paprika paste on the counter that could be added, by dollop, to the soup. Plenty of other choices await the hungry traveler, including various fried vegetables and chicken paprika. For a few dollars, this place made an excellent lunch after we’d circulated through the market. There appeared to be a cooking class going on when we arrived, and live traditional Hungarian musicians add to the ambiance. Try the traditional streudel at the stand one floor down for dessert--you can watch them make it on-site.
