On a quiet residential street, is nestled the unassuming Fulemule Etterem. A stroll from Blaha Lujza Ter (Metro/Tram), happening upon the restaurant is like winning a delicious orienteering challenge. The warm, wood-overloaded decor welcomes you with open arms and a big belly...and it's no wonder why! Tasty beer, wine, spirits and delicious, heavy food glide to your table and fill your craving for Hungarian food.
We ordered a mixed platter for starters to sample a variety of Hungarian delicacies. Our unashamed favourite was the goose skin crackling, washed down with a dark, local beer. For our main dish we had:
(Him): Crispy goose leg with fried potato latkes served with sour cream and grated cheese
(Her): 1/2 Roast duck with red cabbage and onion and garlic mashed potato
Each mouthful deserved an accompanying 'happy noise'. On both dishes, the skin was crispy and the flesh was moist, soft and flavourful. The accompaniments were delicious in their own right - when we go back, I'll just be having a serving of the latkes, they're unmissable!
By the time we had finished (and my husband finished my huge plate for me!), we were satisfied...and then we got the bill and our smiles grew larger!!! Hurray for a favourable exchange rate :)
