Bye-Bye Retró Lángos Buffet – Bulldozer Party @ Budapest

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Farewell is to mark the closing occasion with holding a Bulldoser Party

February, 28-29. 2020.

Saying Good Bye to the venue that exited for over 10 years, whereas many locals spent their lunch break there. Also needless to say the message from tourist who once visited the Retro Langos Buffet in Budapest shared with friends planning a visit to Budapest to a must visit venue. Anytime of the day always in queues, but it was worthwhile in waiting for the good packed Hungarian and/or international mouthwatering fillings at the Retro Lángos Buffet. Many folks simply hit the road to grab their sour cream and cheese + onion lángos.

Unfortunetely,  the Retro Lángos Buffet became a victim in closing one of the prime downtown destination for fried-dough delights in Budapest and it’s still  open until the end of this February to visit … best-loved street-food spot. The Retró Lángos due to the forthcoming long-term renovation tasks of metro line M3 at Arany János Street is to close.

On Friday, February, 28.  sharp 4 p.m. – 11.30 p.m. and rolling along next day Saturday, February, 29. also from 4 p.m. until 11.30 p.m. Live music breaks  and not to be missed in style and with a fireworks display on the spot.

Better not to go with full stomach  cause the  fantastic flavors at bulldozer party will involve everything that goes with lángos … garlic-guzzling contest … frisbee-throwing … dozen-and-dozen of yummy flavors. Next day on Saturday, February, 29.  from 4 p.m. early arrival is expected by the kids to enjoy trampoline.

For further details about the whereabouts of  the Retro Lángos Buffet new venue still to come … stay tuned to

Hans Zimmer concert was a gigantic success @ Budapest – 2020

Hans Zimmer’s Concert Show @ Budapest blew up the László Papp Sport Arena.


The concert show began with Batman Beginnings movie music and a gigantic laser show in the background. The audience began the concert with a full catharsis of spectacle and sound. By the end of the one-and-a-half-hour concert show, the full-house László Papp Sport Aréna did not want to let the artists off the stage.
Hans Zimmer is Hollywood’s most sought-after film composer, who has written music for more than 100 movies – totaling over 24 billion USD The mega-production he dreamed of, curated and directed by Hans Zimmer, set off for a European concert tour, one of the important stops of which was Budapest.
The composer provided a rich experience for concertgoers, which deservedly quickly became a must-see show all over the world, just because of the author’s many decades of stunning career.

By all means if anyone couldn’t make it to the concert, then heads up because in the spring of 2019, Sony Classical released the movie soundtrack on the double album “The World of Hans Zimmer – The Symphonic Celebration”. The album featured music from the concert tour and featured newly staged concert renditions of Hans Zimmer’s greatest hits and may enjoy the magical floating sounds in their own environment.

Veresi Tomato Plantation @ premises of Veresegyháza – Hungary

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

By invitation took a visit to the 3 acre greenhouse at Veresi Tomato Ltd. The importance of switching to digital precision farming was the main topic for the invited competent speakers.

A few words were told about the coming PREGA Conference and Exhibition on February 18-19. to be held this year. Its main theme is the transition to precision farming that is essential for competitive agriculture. Smaller businesses can also participate. It is in the interest of conversion, as precision farming promises greater crop safety while lowering costs.

Talked about the use of precision farming is “moving forward” in the world. Producers are transforming their economies to take advantage of new technologies, which are growing by 5 to 10 percent a year.

In the 21st century the digitalisation is a Globe fact in many fields. Import the Production, Processing and Distribution Chains of tomatoes will be able to follow through the QR code Where, How it was cultivate and how it reached the consumer.

The Spectral LED-based artificial lighting for horticulture, research and development on an industrial scale has not yet occurred all around the world. After the transfer of the greenhouse, Veresi Tomato Ltd. meters high tomato on straw bales are bedded.

After the presentations took place visiting the greenhouse plantation. Seeing the plantation and the optimized spectrum LED lighting was also fascinating.

My question was … Can a greenhouse tomato be healthier than an outdoor one? No matter how surprising was the answer was YES! Was told that when growing outdoors, it is not really possible to control what other substances the vegetable absorbs with water. Groundwater may contain chemicals that have been released into the soil for many-many decades. At the Veresi Tomato Plant, the tomato stems are in coconut fiber cushions. Checking the quality of the water in use to water the plant. This is what controlled cultivation means. No tomato can contain material which they do not know or they do not want them to get into. What there they the tomatoes is you to get only Nutrient. Today’s generation still remember granny’s garden int he countryside where the tomatoes tasted as tomatoes sweet in flavor. Here at the Veresi Plantation brings back that divine taste, enjoying the quality and the heavenly taste speaks for itself.

At the tomato plantation, you can get to know the different (by number) sweet tomatoes, see the pollination of the bees, and the working hands as the ripe bunches were collected and prepared in box to ship to the shopping mall.

The Grapes: Brix value is 12, which is similar to grapes. This is a premium tomato specialty with small berries, which is grown only in Hungary. There is no match for freshly picked tomatoes.

There they have an education center as well, where it is possible to get to know the advantages and disadvantages of various cultivation technologies, to spread misunderstandings about greenhouse cultivation technology and to conduct variety experiments based on the climatic conditions of the Carpathian Basin.

Need not look any further … Premium Tomatoes All Year Around can be  bought from the Veresi Tomato Green-House Plantation.
