Date in the Jewish ghetto of Budapest

December 2019 · 3 min read


If you come to Budapest, one of the nicest area to take a loved one is to the Jewish ghetto, a part of the seventh district of the city. In this area, you can find several synagogues (and one of them is among the largest synagogues in the world), you can find a rabbi school, kosher stores, and of course, kosher restaurants (where the food is prepared after all the Jewish laws and regulations). But, the restaurant I just visited is not a kosher restaurant, even though it is located in the middle of this area, just opposite a very nice synagogue.

The restaurant is named Kazimir, and it does sound Jewish, especially knowing that the jewish district of the city of Krakow is kalled the Kazimierz, but still, this is a traditional Hungarian restaurant with quite traditional courses. But, they have a lot of cultural programs in the place, meaning that you can sometimes listen to live music, hear as people read from books and poems, and they also have a nice outdoor area in the back in case of nice weather. But, considering that it is now December, you can probably forget about the nice weather and just go straight to the inside of the restaurant.


As you can see from the interior, Kazimir looks really nice, and it has a fresh interior. But, what about the food itself? They have nice daily menus (from Monday to Friday) and these are quite cheap and easy to enjoy. The main courses at the menu will cost you around 10 Euro which should be considered average prices in Budapest. You can, of course, find cheaper options elsewhere, but most serious restaurants with somewhat fine dining operates with prices like that.


If you don't know what you are looking for, it is possible to walk by the restaurant without really noticing it. But, check the picture above, and you will see what the entrance looks like and be well prepared.


During my stay in Kazimir, I ate a very nice Hungarian Paloc soup (seep the picture above), and I also had a main course that was vegetarian (even though I love meat), which was fried cheese (almost like a Wiener Schnitzel, but with cheese on the inside instead of meat). I also had some fried mushroom and fried squas to it, and they were crispy and tasty.

In other words, this is a nice getaway place for a quiet evening in a nice environment with someone you love.

And, if you want the party to go on, do not forget that the seventh district of Budapest is not known as the Jewish ghetto to people under 40 years... it is rather known as the area of ruin pubs. Here you can find some of the best pubs in the world, including Szimpla Garden and several others. So, this might turn into a full evening program including food, drinks, partying, and lots of fun!
