Tigris Restaurant, Budapest….not as great as it’s made out to be

The classy Tigris Restaurant  could soon earn a Michelin star – the most prestigious restaurant rating there is.

Bolstered by this knowledge, we had our lunch there upon arriving in Budapest and hurriedly dumping our luggages in the hotel.

When thinking of a Hungarian food, I can only come up with goulash and if I am asked to describe it, I would have said it was a heavy thick meaty stew. Turns out, the version I found in Tigrist were none of those things. Goulash was actually a light broth, flavored with paprika, diced veggies and some meat, usually beef.

The ambience – atmosphere and decor – was nice. The service was English-fluent, attentive, professional and friendly.

Though the goulash soup was quite nice, the cutlet of pork in bacon with a selection of beans and peas was pretty bland and not memorable. The meal certainly wasn’t the “best in the world,”…not even the “best in Budapest.” Once again, this is the true truth. I always say it as it is…
