Edi looks forward to his Finomito Kantin burger


???????????????????
???????????????????Good news, because good food is hard to find in the Szell Kalman ter (aka Moszkva ter) neighborhood. This one’s called Finomito Kantin – finomito means “refinery” and kantin is “canteen,” implying a cool industrial edge but also referring to a commitment to more refined cuisine than the fast-food joints that populate the square.

???????????????????

Finomito Kantin is tucked behind the ice- rink-soon-to-become-beer-garden near the Szena ter bus station. Here’s a map: http://binged.it/12mS0dX.

The menu is simple. Freshly prepared burgers, soups, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and some pastas. They have their mantras painted bilingually on the wall: IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO EAT GOOD FOOD. and SOUP IS LIQUID HAPPINESS and EAT TASTE SMILE. Can’t argue with those. And can’t argue with fresh food, served simply, on recyclable materials. The best thing to happen to the Szell Kalman ter area since the arrival of Arriba Taqueria. Enjoy.

Opening hours: Monday through Saturday, 11:30-8.

Find it on Facebook, in Hungarian, unfortunately but the menu at the restaurant is in English: https://www.facebook.com/finomitokantin?fref=ts. Enjoy.

One day, people looking for tips on life in Budapest started coming to me. Friends, then friends of friends, and so on. People were telling newcomers and longtime Budapesters alike, “Adri knows!” Now it’s time to share what I’ve picked up over more than a decade of fun-and-frequently-frazzled family life in the big BP.

    Looks like a cool little place. Do you know if any of their menu items are Vegan? I’m moving to Budapest in a few weeks so trying to get an idea of what is around outside of the city center.

    Have also tried Manga Cowboy and Jack’s Burger bar recently. Both Just ok, not places I’d go back to. Out of all the burger places, so far black cab gets highest points in my book.

    Finally went back to finomito kantin on a Saturday… Pretty good! If it weren’t so cramped I’d go back a lot.

    Black Cab at this point is still the best burger in the city, but there is a new place called Goodbar that has nice burgers too. Check it out – Kecskeméti utca 6. I am an American who has been living here for 3 yrs, and always on the lookout for a good burger. Jacks burgers are pretty terrible, but Manga Cowboy DOES have good wings.
