Although this is not a dining place, as in sit down and be served, this little restaurant is so popular with Hungarians there is a line out the door at lunchtime. Fozelék is a cross between a soup and a stew, though it is puréed and this wisp of a restaurant has been voted the best in the city by all who have been polled. Fozelék is a national dish and treasure, so if you have not tried it, you have not officially been to Hungary. Inside there are only bar tables and stools, but if the weather is good, the sidewalk will be packed with tables. Take it to go if you have to. They will give you a spoon. The stew comes in a number of varieties, but green pea and potato are the most popular. If you want something more hearty, they sell fried chicken too. This is the cheapest, filling meal you will find in the city. If you still want some dessert, they serve palacsinta (Hungarian crepes).
