Hungarian food writer Zsófia Mautner recommends Babel as one of her top 10 restaurants in Budapest, describing it as the ultimate destination for contemporary Transylvanian cuisine in the Hungarian capital. At Michelin-star Babel, executive chef István Veres uses ingredients that evoke the region where he grew up. The menu itself harks back to the childhood memories of the restaurant’s young, visionary chef, and the concept at the heart of Babel’s cuisine rests upon this nostalgia. The 10-course tasting menu features singular signature dishes such as trout with lichen, beef tendon and radish or a broth of Tokaj wine, celeriac and parsley. A seven-course vegan tasting menu is also on offer at Babel.
