Discover the Culinary Gem of Budapest: 101 Bistro, Where East Meets West

After a decade of exploring the culinary scenes across the globe and working in internationally acclaimed restaurants, Chef Keve Márton decided it was time to return to his roots and open his restaurant. His chosen spot was on the burgeoning corner of Széll Kálmán Square—when the Covid pandemic struck, derailing plans worldwide. Yet, Keve’s resilience shone through. He launched 101 Bistro during the pandemic, initially as a delivery-only service. Inspired by his adventures in Taiwan, this venture became a massive success and served as a stellar advertisement for the physical location that would follow.

As the pandemic eased and doors opened, 101 Bistro quickly established itself as a must-visit destination in Budapest. While its delivery service continues to thrive, the in-person experience offers something even more special. The restaurant’s cozy space perfectly captures the essence of East Asia’s bustling, high-quality eateries, focusing on communal dining and small plates that invite sharing. This culinary philosophy is evident in dishes like the Szechuan spinach and the San Bei eggplant, highlighting the menu’s strong vegetable focus. Yet, it would be remiss not to mention the confit pork belly bao buns, arguably one of Budapest’s finest culinary offerings.

Lunch menus at 101 Bistro are exceptional, offering a taste of Chef Keve’s travels and experiences. For those joining in the evening, the restaurant also boasts a selection of Asian-inspired cocktails and highballs that perfectly complement the dining experience.

Tip for Diners: Consider adding one of their long-lasting products, such as the Szechuan chili oil, when ordering home delivery. It can enhance home-cooked meals for months, bringing a taste of 101 Bistro into your kitchen.
