Wienersnitzel


That is the Hungarian translation of the 'Becsi Szelet' on the side of the building and that is what this OBuda restaurant specializes in.

Obuda is now also part of Budapest, the oldest section of the city with lots of low buildings that still remain in pockets of the neighborhood. The area I've visited was Kolosy Square where some of the original buildings remained, others were rebuilt in similar fashion and others are new and multi-story over towering the others.

The Hungarian name doesn't sound even close to Wiener Schnitzel or to cotoletta alla milanese (the original dish). Although, now that I think about it, maybe "Szelet" is how the Hungarians pronounce "côtelette."

Love the wavy dormer windows.

These guys in Blogger can only be kidding me. I left a comment in the morning and it wasn´t saved!

Anyhow, I said I like the building and that maybe we should go in to try the food. No?

A nice sturdy building. I really like those windows in the roof. I wonder if the rooms up there are high enough to stand in.
