Comme Chez Soi translates as „just like home,” which is the feeling that the restaurant wishes to convey in downtown Budapest. Since it is so intimate, you can be sure that all the food is freshly prepared and served with personal service. A great French-style dish is the goose liver sautéed with apple slices served in a pan. One can imagine a French housewife serving it to her family for a special occasion straight from the kitchen, prepared with loving kindness. For a hearty Italian soup, order the minestrone filled with fresh cauliflower, broccoli, carrot, mushroom and celery in a rich chicken stock. Continue with the grilled scampi served with green salad. All the fish and seafood are fresh. The tender shrimp are sautéed in olive oil with garlic, but Singer says they are so tasty because he uses ‘secret spices.’ Perhaps you will be able to figure out what they are. If you want more Italian food choose the three kinds of pasta with three sauces: ravioli Bolognese, tortellini with cream sauce and Parma ham, and fettuccine with pesto. There is also a pizza menu featuring thin-crust Roma-style pizzas with a variety of toppings. For the main course, try the grilled Argentine beef tenderloin, prepared as you like it and served with gorgonzola or green peppercorn sauce, with home-made mashed potatoes or rice on the side. This dish proves that Argentina raises some of the best beef in the world. A glass of hearty red wine is the perfect accompaniment to this well-prepared dish. For dessert we recommend the Godiva chocolate mousse, made from 50% dark chocolate, from one of Belgium’s leading chocolatiers. The perfect ending to a satisfying meal.
