Cheese Shops (Sajtbolt) in Budapest

Budapest has currently a very small handful of specialist cheese shops that are worth mentioning.

Cheese Shop in the inner city

The cheese shop of T. Nagy Tamás is conveniently located in the city center, close to the Deák tér stop of all metro lines, Váci utca shopping street, etc. “Although precious few specialist cheese shops exist in Budapest, lovers of Italian, French and British cheeses will no doubt find “Big Tom’s” excellent range (and personal service) a real delight. Recommended. ” (Talking Cities UK). This is also one of those few places where truffle (original and canned) is sold, and where the owner took part in a French Truffle 001 course in France, once he decided to sell the product. In addition to cheeses, you can get dried fruits and some wines here too.

Szega Cheese Café in Budagyöngye Shopping Center

The cheese shop & café & ham shop is specializing in Camembert cheeses and sells hams too. Vegetarians, please skip this part. Mouth-watering Hungarian indigenous pork (mangalica) ham, prosciutto, jamon iberico, etc. hams are hanging above your head. It’s on the Buda side – alas a bit farther off the tourist tracks (unless you happen to take the Funicular Railway, or the Children’s Railway, or for any reason you should be strolling in the Buda hills on the route of the trams/ streetcars number 56). It’s a relatively new store, highly praised and compared to French cheese shops by locals. (Very close to one of the wine shops of the Hungarian Wine Society). In March 2007, the cheese shop won the Best of Budapest award.

Opening hours: 10 am – 8 pm, Sat 10 am – 4pm.

Soma’s Cheese Store

The third cheese shop, Soma’s Cheese (Soma Sajt) is really off center, so it’s for the cheese-freaks and dedicated ones, but it’s worth mentioning because of the specialty Orda, goat and sheep cheeses the store has on offer. The originally Transylvanian Orda is an easy-to-cut, fresh cheese (great for salads, meat dishes, simply with bread and butter or toast, or just by itself T. Nagy Tamás). It’s also ideal for dieters due to its light texture & low calorie content (125 kcal/ 100g). SomaSajt offers orda in 5 varieties: garlic-parsley, paprika-chives, dill, sesame, chives. Before you dive into a 1-2 hour journey to the shop, check out major stores, which will sell some of the Soma’s ordas, cheeses & ricottas: Auchan, CBA, G-Roby, Rothschild, TESCO to name but a few.

    I would like to purchase Orda cheese. I live in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. Do you have a website where I can purchase it and ship to U.S?
    My phone # is 770-552-7092. Please e-mail me at your earliest convenience.
    I have a good friend here who is from Budapest, originally, and speaks of Orda and how delicious it is.
    Please advise shipping costs to Atlanta, along w/ cost of cheese/ pound and minimum required to buy. How long does this cheese keep in frig?
