This boisterous, trendy gastropub on the city’s Pest side serves an irresistible pork-centric menu. Chef Tamas Bereznay specializes in the tasty Mangalitsa, an indigenous pig known for its flavorful, well-marbled meat that has seen a revival since disappearing during the Communist regime (try it in the goulash, you won’t be sorry). Non-pork dishes include a foie gras terrine with red onion marmalade and sirloin steak with oyster mushroom strudel and smoked cheese sauce. The contemporary space with high-top tables and soaring ceilings draws a hip, young crowd.
