Respond to Review of Napfenyes Restaurant and Pastry Shop - Napfenyes Etterem es Cukraszda

Review: I've eaten in vegetarian restaurants all over the world, from California to Turkey. Napfenyes is easily one of the best I've tried anywhere. Very memorable experience. The food is thoughtfully designed, not just some generic stir fry or falafel or heavily-processed and sodium-laden mockmeats. I visited each of the three nights I was in Budapest and have been thinking about the food ever since. The first night I had braised cauliflower "goulash" (Hungarian-style) with spaetzle that was on special - delicious. The spice-level was pretty tame, but I can understand why. I saw the "Fried Pancakes Filled with Vegetable Cream served with Mashed Potatoes and Onions" on the menu and decided that was my culinary goal for the trip, and I had it the third night I was there. Unbelievable - crispy on the outside, loaded with sort of pot-pie style vegetables on the inside, and obviously you can't go wrong with potato anything. Yeap, also delicious. As someone who walks everywhere and thus expends a lot of energy I really appreciated the large portions, too. Totally satisfying - and I don't utter those words about vegetarian restaurants very often. I didn't get a chance to try their pizzas, but I saw them and they look great. Definitely worth a go. The deserts are equally tasty. I had some kind of vegan custard one night, and the fake curd balls another night. Custard anything and I'm on board, and it was definitely good. Service-wise, they are welcoming and attentive without being bothersome. In other words, service in the best modern European tradition. All of the folks I interfaced with speak English, so that's an obvious advantage. The prices are very reasonable considering the amount of food you get. I mean, if you can leave totally full of high-quality food and dessert for 10 to 12 USD, that's pretty remarkable. Can't praise this place enough. Seriously, I wish I could have stayed in Budapest longer just to keep going to this restaurant.
