Ázsia Bt.

This shop was one of the first shops in Budapest to specialize in oriental spices. Here you will find a wide array of spices from all four corners of the world (as suggested in their motto). Customers have the opportunity to shop from different types of noodles, sauces, spices, teas, rice, and even edible decoration.

Buono – olive oil and pasta specialty shop

Open every weekday and located centrally in the 6th district, Buono is the place to go if you wish to buy quality Italian pasta, olive oil, coffee, and wine. However, these are not the only things you will find at Buono. Notably, customers may purchase kitchen utensils, coffee-, and pasta-making machines.

The British store

In the British store, you will find all your favourite British food brands such as Cadbury, Maltesers, and Twinings. Customers may shop from a wide range of teas, cereals, jams and curds, and chocolates. I am not quite sure what it is, but the shop has a special feel to it. As a Brit who hasn’t been back to England for a while, I sometimes get a slight pang of nostalgia when I visit.

Szép Kis India

If you are looking for Indian spices and delicacies, then Exotic India is the place to go. Here you will find spices, lentils, ghee and oil, and different types of rice among other things. There is also a selection of African products that you may buy.

Kosher Market

Located in the 7th district of Budapest and mostly frequented by the local Jewish community, you will find only kosher goods in this shop. It is open Sunday to Friday to all customers, and you will find sweet and salty tasty foods, such as hummus, cereals, meat, but also wine.

Culinaria Italia

My personal favourite – located in Mamut I. shopping centre, you will find all the Italian delicacies that you would otherwise find in Italy. Ranging from a wide array of scrumptious Italian sweet and salty biscuits (some available in gluten-free versions too) to cheeses, dried tomatoes, and fresh pesto. It is also a go-to place to get a special Christmas or birthday gift for your friends and family. The shop offers pre-prepared gift sets of different Italian yummies, as well as beautifully packaged and delicious Italian panettone.

Culinaris

You will find three Culinaris shops in Budapest – two on the Buda side and one on the Pest side of the city. Here customers have the opportunity to buy international delicacies, such as meats, sausages, and different types of cheese. However, you may also find cereals, jams, and other groceries that you may miss from your home country, but are unable to find anywhere else in Budapest. In the Culinaris on the Pest side, you will also find a special section dedicated to chocolate. The recently opened shop in the Hegyvidék centre specialises in wine and other special alcoholic beverages.
