    Menus are usually printed in German and English, while major credit cards are widely accepted (there's still a significant number that don't though, so check in advance). By law, restaurants must clearly list prices on their menus. If they don't go elsewhere. Check the bill carefully too as overcharging in Budapest is not uncommon.
    Contrary to widespread belief, Hungarian cooking isn't all gulyás (goulash) and heavily spiced paprika dishes, just in the same way as Italian isn't all pasta and Indian hot spices.

    Favorite Dish: Hungarian dishes have a distinctive, unmistakable character of their own, often rich with sour cream, onions, eggs, butter and wine. An abundance of good local produce, meat and fish make for dishes such as Halászlé (Fish soup), Sült libamájszelet (pan-fried goose liver), Almával töltött fácán (pheasant stuffed with apples), Szarvastokány erdei gombával (venison stew with wild mushrooms) and Fogasszelet bakonyi módra (fillet of pike-perch Bakony style). Vegetarians fair less well though with a Hungarian diet that's traditionally meat heavy. Although vegetarian restaurants do exist here, they're largely sombre affairs which compare unfavourably to those in London or Paris. Most traditional restaurants will offer fried mushrooms (rántott gomba), Trappista sajt (Trappist cheese in breadcrumbs) or egg dishes, but that's about all.
