So, we're going to Budapest and Amsterdam this holiday season... Budapest for Christmas and Amsterdam for the New Year. I've read through a lot of these posts--thanks for all the helpful advice!
Our constraints: we are young, don't like things too stuffy, and don't have too much money. However, food is a priority for this trip, so I'm pinching my pennies to be able to afford some yummy things.
In Budapest (four days) I plan on going to the Central Market, Kadar, maybe Klassz or Csalogany 26 (the latter for lunch, maybe)?
In Amsterdam (six days) I think we'll be eating a lot of street food--fries and olliebollen, etc. Maybe try out Zus en Zus for New Years Eve?
Any ideas on what might be open in Budapest on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Any Jewish or Asian restaurants, maybe? Or should we wing it? Will restaurants like Kádár be open after Christmas?
In Amsterdam, any tips for keeping things yummy and cheap? Sandwich shops?
