Mazel Tov

Budapest, Akácfa u. 47, 1072 Hungary

 

This place is fantastic and not to be missed! It looks pretty simple from the outside but ones inside, join the huge que, unless you where clever enough to reserve a table in advance (Highly Recommended) a marker on just how popular this place is and rightly so!

 

A plethora of Middle-Eastern inspired gastro delights await you

 

On entry to this beautiful restaurant space, you will notice its large glass window giving you insight to exactly how their freshly baked bread is made to order! There’s a large wooden counter, serving up the most delicious of dishes and the wide open space of the restaurant is light, fresh and funky, presenting a sort of outside inside type of vide.

 

The dishes were exceptional ranging from homemade falafel, shaksuka (poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce) to hummus and a selection of deliciously presented kebabs, all beautifully presented on their very stylish Moroccan inspired cement plates.

 

There’s an intentional essence of ‘bourgeois décor’ here from the general sophisticated atmosphere, the gorgeous turquoise tiles, the 1930s chairs, stunning lamps, exposed bulbs and tasteful furniture, the lush greenery dangling beautifully from the terraces overhead to the enormous skylight that brightens the whole covered courtyard and terrace area at the rear of the space, not at all bad for an ‘apparently’ run down building.

 

If you don’t feel like eating (a big mistake!) then treat yourself to a designer cocktail or three or maybe even something non-alcoholic, like their original homemade lemonades, if that’s your thing! Just don’t rush, while your time away on the comfortable and very relaxing terrace space.

 

Were told Mazel Tov is a meeting of European Jewish heritage and the oriental, Iberian Sephardic traditions, well who are we to disagree, we just know that we loved everything about MT and we would highly recommend it. Don’t miss it.
