"Food Wine Budapest: A Terroir Guide, by Carolyn Banfalvi, concentrates on gastronomic pleasures. It is, quite simply, the best guide available today to the culinary renaissance of the city and region in the post-communist era. Banfalvi profiles some of the best restaurants and wine bars in Budapest, but also includes cafes, pastry shops, specialty food shops and markets, as well as the traditions behind their offerings. Helpfully, she includes extensive translations for the names of wines, foods and cooking methods as well. This is the first book in a new series called Terroir Guides, which promises to explore cities or regions, focusing on the way local influences are reflected in food and wine. The Budapest guide sets a high standard for those that follow." —Laszlo Buhasz, The Globe and Mail
"Getting to the heart of regional cuisine can be a tall order, but The Terroir Guides ably examine the interplay between markets, local food artisans, winemakers, and chefs on a town-by-town basis, taking the reader from field to plate and making a great companion for any food-obsessed tourist...packed with local history, food lore, and useful translations." --Sherman's Travel
"I love The Terroir Guides. They give me everything I want. They're a tactile pleasure, compact, meaty. They're lovely to look at, elegantly laid out, mutedly and tastefully colored...positively overflowing with the Who, What, Where and How even an intrepidly independent traveler should know...The Little Bookroom has a knack for putting guidebooks into print that are as useful as they are beautiful." --Wine News
"A travel guide worthy of the city.You can easily kill a week in Budapest, but until now, good food guides written in English about the area were scarce. Carolyn Banfalvi's new book, Food Wine Budapest, is part of the beautiful Terroir Guides series, and fills the gap nicely. It has neighborhood guides, a primer on Tokaji wine, tons of good restaurant recommendations, and pretty pictures." -CHOW.com

In short, if you're headed to Budapest (or anywhere else in Hungary), this is a must-have book.
Her food-related Hungarian-English and English-Hungarian dictionary was very helpful. Locator maps would have been useful, with numbers used to indicate locations of each place. We did discover, though, that Budapest is an easy city to navigate and it's not difficult to find what you're looking for.
If you're planning a trip to Budapest, you'll be glad you have this book in your backpack.
Even if you are not planning a trip to Budapest, it is worth reading for the information on soups, meats, dumplings, and palinka. The coffeehouses and sweets are documented to great detail. This book will not disappoint. It is a great investment on the rich food culture of Hungary.
Super happy with this book and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves good food and drink and is planning a trip to Hungary.
I have also learned that there is a website [...] by the same author with updates of their latest restaurant picks.
