Hungarian Traditional Food @ Marvelosa Budapest (Marvelosa Kávézó)
I hesitate to write because most of the photos I took came out blurry; we had just visited Buda Castle and unbeknownst to me, my sweat had tainted my camera lens. But then Marvelosa is just too nice a place not too share, blurry photos or not.
So, here goes!
Marvelosa is a small place, occupying one narrow side of a larger building and has been operating since 1900, a year after the building was completed. It was refurbished in 2005 and as the operators put it ".. to create a place where everybody can have a good time and enjoy themselves. Where they can realize how important it is to stop for a while in our rushed present days and hectic world..... where everybody can feel like arriving home". How true that is, even though we were not from Hungary we did feel at home and we did pause for more than a while.
One can either sit inside or dine al-fresco at tables on a blocked out section of the road. Al-fresco seems to be a favourite among patrons...

Okay then, let's have a look at the food...
Mikszath Hungarian Chicken Paprika (Paprikás Csirke) with home-made pasta. A very good dish with savoury sauce topped with a whisk of cream.
Look at that pasta! .... don't look like the usual one.... it's because it's home-made in small nuggets which made them softly chewy. These are Tarhonya (Rivilchas): Grated Fresh Egg Pasta.
"Lautrec" Chicken Thigh Fillet served with grilled vegetables and honey-chilli sauce. With horizontal slits the meat was nicely done yet still juicy. The sauce was unique, sweet and spice going well with the chicken.
We did have other dishes like salads and other mains but the photos did not turn out well; so to do justice to the place I won't put them here.
After finishing with the food, we lingered on, slowly sipping our beer enjoying the slow pace while watching the world pass by on the road and slightly further away boats on the Danube.
Marvelosa was aptly named, we did indeed have a marvellous time of good traditional Hungarian food in a very cosy homely place!
