The Fishmarket has daily fresh sea fishes and seafood from all around the world, what is really important, based on the fact Hungary does not have sea or ocean.

Having lunch in a Markethall is already a unique thing, even if it the most beautiful market hall in Hungary, full of souvenirs for the tourist as well as vegetables, meat, cheese, and popular Hungarian food as street food.
Icecream with alcohol
The 18+ And Less offer an extreme combination of ice cream and alcohol just like Jack Daniel’s with chili and dark chocolate, pálinka, tequila and cocktails from different components can be found here. The quantity of the alcohol does not make you feel tipsy, but who knows how strong is the placebo effect. Of course, if you are under 18, you can have ice cream only without the alcohol.
It is hard to describe this Hungarian stew of vegetables, or rather a thick veggie soup whish is so popular within this country but cannot really find anywhere else. Mostly these are cheap food for home and not really served by restaurants, but the Hokedli Pottage bar close to the Octogon.
Countless street food
The Street food Karaván is a small garden full of caravans offering different type of street food from the Hungarian cuisine, but you can find Mexican or vegetarian food as well. The place is alwys clean and has a good atmosphere even for lunch or for dinner.
