The mall near the train station in Budapest was CROWDED because it was December and Christmas shopping. We found a place to eat a sit down lunch after waiting 20 minutes for a table. The lunch was good, with goulash and sandwiches. My sandwich was chicken, and Andreas' was a cubano. He loved his. Mine was okay. The goulash didn't have much in the way of chunky stuff in it, but the broth was good. We were at the mall to go grocery shopping for sweet potatoes, which you cannot find in Moldova. You can find them most everywhere else in Europe now, but not Moldova.

We went to this restaurant at St. Stephen's square in Budapest twice. The first time was really good. The second time was awful and we both caught food poisoning. The only difference seemed to be the staff. I had a cappucino to warm me up, and we both had goulash. I also had a steak and egg thing while Andreas had chicken paprikash. His was better.

Pizza 4 Amici is in the basement of a building on Blvd. Eroilor, and they make good mulled wine! Their food is also very good. I had the wine to warm me up. Andreas had a banana milkshake. No comment on the reason. We, as usual, ordered too much food. My chicken soup - was not zeama. I am so going to miss zeama when we move to Luanda in the autumn. Andreas had a cold plate and pasta and I had veggie pizza. All were very good and very filling. The service was nice too! The waitress checked on us every so often and told us that things would take a bit.

We saw these shallow bowls hanging on the wall in MolDeco when we were getting some framing done. I fell in love with some of them, especially the one above on the right. They're all hand made and painted by an artist in Transylvania. Andreas decided to buy them all for me. The whole set was under a hundred dollars. I consider it a steal.
