Gluten-free in Budapest

by mandeLeben

Since being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease in 2015, my life has changed in many ways. Because of my new lifestyle, I started my Instagram page on January 1, 2017, as a way to share my journey and connect with other Coeliacs. Last summer I also started a gluten-free recipe blog because living a Coeliac life can be a hard thing. You have to make sacrifices. You have to give up on a usual way of life and prepare for each day. It has been a long journey to get to where I am now, but it has been entirely worth it.

Budapest has changed a lot, too! I remember the first Valentine's Day dinner with my husband. It was almost impossible to find a place serving gluten-free food. Now a few years later, we have a street food "revolution,” with more and more restaurants opening in the city, creating gluten-free options. Budapest is famous among tourists for its nightlife and beautiful architecture. It is well worth visiting, and you do not have to worry about finding gluten-free food during your stay. Let me be your guide to finding the best available options in Budapest, Hungary.

 Market BDPST

This place is my personal favorite in the middle of the "party” district. You can find on Király street 8, near Deák Square, a 1-minute walk from the subway. They offer a wide variety, with their tacos and hamburgers being made gluten-free. I highly recommended them, especially the Chiolorio taco, made with spicy beef neck. It is incredible. Their burgers are great too, and you should not miss the opportunity to try them! Check them out on TripAdvisor.

 Che Che Nemburger (Notburgers)

Che Che is famous for its Notburgers, which are made of quality meat. They are proud of their recipes, and I can say I loved everything I have tried. My personal favorite is the Steak Notburger, Bacon & Egg. Don’t miss it if you visit Budapest! Find them on TripAdvisor.

Etna Pizza

I know this is not Italy. I know people do not visit Hungary to eat pizza, but you have to try Etna restaurant’s gluten-free pizzas. The last time I ate a pizza this good, I was in Venice, and I was sure that I would have to travel back to Italy to get pizza this good, but Etna proved me wrong. They make my favorite gluten-free pizza in town. Here is their TripAdvisor listing.

Honorable Mentions


Most of the time I cook our meals at home. Not only is it healthier, but I love cooking. Every Saturday I go to the market to find the best ingredients for my meals. I love the market atmosphere. A city’s real sense of being is discovered when visiting places locals go to, and our market is one of those places. I understand that tourists do not want to cook and would instead go to a nice restaurant to enjoy the local gastronomy. Luckily, Budapest went through a significant change recently, and many new casual restaurants are opening along the street. I have tried a few of these new establishments and liked what I ate. Please be advised that not all of these are gluten free restaurants, but they do offer gluten-free options:

1. Menta Terasz (Mint Terrace)
2. Tama
3. Vakvarrjú
4. Drop (they are a 100% gluten-free restaurant)

You can keep up with mandeLeben on Instagram and on her website.
