Expensive, albeit shitty! Perfect combination.
These arrogant cunts told us that they can’t separate the yolk from the egg whites cause they come in a shell and they are together. My americano tasted like burnt rubber and the “Belgian waffle” was more like “Belgian awful” with uncooked dough on the inside and the Nutella cream was just shitty hazelnut whipped butter. The last time I saw something that consistency was in two girls one cup.
We should have walked out after they “enlightened” us about the eggs. Unfortunately, we were hungry so we stayed. Ms. Salty ordered an omelette with a bunch of stuff in it and I got a cajun benedict. The omelette looked kind of sad and it was watery and just plain tasteless with only a little of each ingredient put inside. When I paid we found out that every ingredient in the omelette was charged separately so her food came out to cost quadruple. Basically twenty bucks for 3 eggs, 6 leaves of spinach, one slice of ham, one slice of eggplant and a couple slices of peppers. In New York that might be a normal price for an omelette but in Budapest, that’s outrageously expensive.
The Cajun sauce (not hollandaise) on my badly poached eggs was inedibly salty. The eggs were also accompanied by my favorite side dish. Wilted dry salad! These people can suck my left nut! I’m not a fucking rabbit! Stop giving me dry salad!
I was going to ask about the state of my coffee as well but fortunately, I had a perfect view of the coffee machine that produces this awful SUT water. An americano is supposed to be however many shots of espresso you ask for in hot water. Some places are lazy as fuck and they just let your espresso run a little longer until the amount you get equals an americano. The problem with this is that you have that hot water under huge pressure going through the coffee for way too long. The rubbery taste also comes from the machine if it isn’t cleaned often enough and the caked on residue produces unpleasant burnt aromas. Needless to say, this is what is happening here as well.
We are extremely reluctant about returning here but quite honestly I just want to go Gordon Ramsey on their ass the next time they give me shit like this.
I’m a very lenient person. It’s not easy to make me pissed off or trigger a response like this. But I really hate if someone thinks that I’m stupid. I know that eggs have yolks. I really do. I ask for whites because I like it that way and not because I think that chickens lay them separately in a glass. I asked politely if they may do the omelette as I like it (3 whites + 1 whole egg) and I had a condescending explanation that eggs contain yolks too. Thank you very much. With this extraordinary fact, I also learned something else: it really doesn’t mean anything if a place is all hyped up. I am sure that we all have different tastes but this breakfast was so disappointing that I didn’t want to eat out for a week. The omelette was meh and super expensive, my coffee was bitter and the waffle was sadly raw in the middle. I really had a high expectations because of the reviews and I saw that the place was always full, these are good signs in general. Now, this was a typical too good to be true case.
