Szent Jupat: "Moscow Square: Hungarian" Top 5 Page for this destination Szent Jupat Tip by antistar

Szent Jupat, Budapest: 4 reviews and 9 photos

Warning: Extremely Unhealthy Food!

They make no bones about it: it's traditional Hungarian food. Big style. Washed down with litres of Dreher or palinka, the heavy Hungarian food comes on great wooden platters and is served in cozy wood panelled surrounds. The service is great, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. They are even honest enough to warn you that certain starters and main dishes will be too much for anyone less than Giant Haystacks or a sumo wrestler.

I had a goulash bean soup, followed with cheese pancakes that were fried, and then deep fried in batter, and served three deep on top of a large serving of deep fried potatoes. If that wasn't enough carbohydrate, there was a serving of rice to go with it. Potatoes, rice, pancakes and batter. Oh, and a small token serving of salad.

I was full just looking at it, but it did taste very good. You might just want to make sure you have enough hunger and space in the stomach before entering this demanding restaurant.
