Vendéglő a Zsákbamacskához (Zsákbamacskához Bistro)

It was still raining when we reached this restaurant, as recommended by a hotel staff. Zsákbamacskához apparently is the name of a cat cartoon character, or something to that effect.

The restaurant was located in the basement:

Because it was raining, it was empty despite it being a Friday night. Do note the way they keep their bottles towards the top of their bar!

One of the starters was a dumpling soup topped with cream

The dumplings were hidden somewhere inside...

A main dish of catfish cooked in some tomato tinged sauce, served with lots of steamed vegetables

Another main dish of grilled goose liver with steamed apple slices and potato croquettes. The croquettes were absolute classic; the apple slices complemented the rich slices of gooses liver (which unfortunately wasn't of foie gras standard, but at 13 euroes, you can't expect foie gras).

We had a dessert of somli with chocolate sauce, but no pictures sorry.

And a little souvenir taken from the restaurant:

There you go, a little picture of the aforementioned cartoon character in that postcard
