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

Review: Photos: Two weeks ago during my Budapest trip, we went to a vegan, traditional Hungarian-style restaurant, "Napfényes Étterem", which was situated in a basement (actually a gorgeous, breathtaking one with calming ambiance). After hearing lots of good reviews on Happy Cow, I was determined to try them since I never had Hungarian food. We approached the friendly brunette, who quickly took our orders, which we had no problems with. I was fortunate to be the first customer because in the later hours after noon, the restaurant appeared nearly booked! Keep in mind, the dishes are huge. A main dish may feed two if you are not used to "Hungarian-portions." We started off with two average organic Cappuccinos with Dairy-Free Whip Cream (Hungarian: Bio capuccino növényi tejszínhabbal) and shared a main dish: Fried Pancakes Filled with Vegetable Cream served with Mashed Potatoes and Onions {Hungarian Zöldségkrémes rántott palacsinta hagymás burgonyával} (spelt wheat pancakes filled with spicy vegetable cream served with fried, mashed potatoes and savory tomato sauce). It was beyond filling for me, but I enjoyed the crustiness of the vegetable-filled pancakes plus the chilled tomato sauce made the flavours wonderful. So what's for dessert? I was truly stuffed and did not have room for that, but I never had curd dumplings, neither vegan nor vegetarian. So I tried Fake Curd Dumplings with Soy Yoghurt {Hungarian Hamis} (balls of millet covered in sweet breadcrumbs served with soy yoghurt and brown sugar). I smelled the sourness in the vegan white yoghurt, but the fake curd dumplings had interesting textures-sort of rice-like pudding in it. Honestly, I couldn't even finish that dessert with my boyfriend because we were stuffed. It was a huge dessert dish to finish off with. Only approx. $20 for all of them, which wasn't too bad for a vegan fancy restaurant! Huge Tip For First-Time Visitors? Bring a friend or two. You definitely need help with finishing the delicious meals. Arrive at noon when it's not busy, plus you get more attention.
