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

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 http://www.rollinginbudapest.com
