Mazel Tov is located in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest in the ruin bars area. Although not really a ruin bar, it has a very authentic and rustic feel. The vibe in the restaurant is amazing. There are fairy lights and greenery everywhere, the kitchen is open and right at the front of the restaurant so you are hit with the smell of food as soon as you walk in. The ceilings are high and there is a tree going through the roof, it’s all sorts of weird and wonderful.
The food was delicious and probably the best I had in Budapest. The menu was middle-eastern inspired with falafel, hummus, shawarma, pitta bread and more. We started with a hummus platter and falafels. The hummus was smooth and creamy and tasted delicious with their freshly made pitta bread. The star of the show was definitely the falafels- it had a slight sweetness to it and you could taste the chickpeas. So delicious.
For our mains we chose chicken shawarma, beef shawarma and grilled salmon. My salmon was perfect. It came with a side of quinoa and pomegranate salad, the combination of flavours were amazing. I’ve not tasted salmon like that before, it was honestly the best salmon I’ve ever had.
Our entire meal including drinks came to approximately Eur 74, which was not bad at all. Mazel Tov was the best way to end our long day and I highly recommend you go there for the salmon.
Till next time x
