Shopping and Desserts

Here in Budapest, stores are more specialized.  Before moving here, I was so used to going to HyVee or Walmart to get anything I needed.  Now, we've adjusted to shopping at several different stores.  For groceries, we have been shopping at Spar (a Dutch grocery chain). For toiletries and cleaning supplies we can go to Müller or DM (both German retailers).  For any medicine or vitamins we have to go to the gyógyszertár (the pharmacy).  It takes a bit more planning to purchase everything we need. On the other hand, it is fun to explore new and different stores when we find them.  Right near our apartment, there is a new shop, a cukrászda. This means a "sweet shop."  They have all sorts of desserts and pastries. The other day, we got some fancy desserts to celebrate being together for three years. It was delicious.

Yesterday, we got even more delicious desserts. This time, we went to the Gundel Patisserie. The Gundel restaurant is a very famous, and fancy restaurant near the Budapest Zoo in City Park. We chose the Chocolate Mousee and Sacher Torte. They were both amazing!

Luckily, we spend a lot of time walking around the city to balance all of the chocolate we've been eating!
