Curious "chucho" rolled on a stick and fried. There is always a line and they make the dough instantly, there is a person doing everything, from weighing the ingredients to frying, all at once. They are not stuffed and the taste is not a big...More

This original Transilvanian dessert is one of a kind. Although you can find kurtos in many places all over Hungary the quality is not comparable. Here it is always fresh, delicious and you can feel how much effort the couple dedicates to always provide the...More

Stumbled upon this little stand at the Citadel and was pleasantly surprised to find their chimney cakes were vegan. I went for a cinnamon chimney cake, which was still hot when served and it was absolutely delicious.

I love these classic “Transylvanian chimney cakes”. We tried a number of flavors - coconut, vanilla and nut - all came out hot and freshly made. Quick, friendly service. If you’re in Budapest, you have to try these!

I have bought one on the Gellert's hill next to Citadel. It was fresh made, very hot and very very tasty. The smell was everywhere and the cake was heavenly soft. I really love this street food. You must try once you are in Hungary.....More

Great snack, especially after a hot climb up the hill. Recommend one each if you are hungry. We had vanilla and cinnamon- it’s only possible to have one flavour. We waiting 4minutes to have a fresh one - worth it. Possibly cheaper in the city...More
