Onyx (Budapest, Hungary)

In Budapest, next to Vörösmarty Square, I was fortunate enough to try one of two Michelin starred restaurants in the  country.  Unfortunately, I had a terrible stomachache before dining (too much goulash), so I could not enjoy the food as much as I would have liked.  Everything, though, was excellent.  Not blow-your-mind crazy, but very delicious. My meal was as follows:

Marinated tuna, pineapple and avocado

Spring roasted carrot, veal sauce

Wild-caught sea bass, lobster, smoked potato puree, sabayon

Roasted duck liver, beetroot, green apple

Potato gnocchi, sturgeon caviar, mangalitza pork bacon

Venison, mushroom toast, onion variation

Strawberry gazpacho

Caramel, chocolate, yoghurt


I also had the primarily-Hungarian wine pairing, which was fine.  Not amazing, but not bad by any means.  And stylistically, I found the restaurant to have a very peculiarly odd layout.  Perhaps the list open and comfortable of any Michelin-starred restaurant I have visited.  Certainly not a bad experience, but I will try Costes next time.
