Fare is a bi-annual print publication exploring city culture through the intersection of food, history, and community.
Each issue is guided by locals of the city. We work with as many local writers, photographers, and illustrators as possible, so that in addition to expert insight, you also get a sense of the creative aesthetic.
The magazine is curated and designed to be interesting for all readers— regardless of prior interest, or intention to visit. We’ve heard from numerous readers that issues of the magazine summon up the real spirit of their home town, or motivate them to vacation somewhere new and different. It can be a roadmap, or just armchair reading.
The unification of two ancient settlements, the Hungarian capital is a city of stunning architecture, kitchens churning out comforting classics, and a verve for social politics.
In Fare: Budapest:
- Dine at Rosenstein, a stalwart of Jewish-Hungarian cuisine, where matzah ball soup, chicken paprikash, and poppyseed cakes are treated with reverence
- Step into the healing waters of the Gellért Thermal Baths, one of Buda's grandest art-nouveau buildings and a living piece of the city's ancient bathing culture
- Meet Peter Pallai, a jazz critic and former radio producer who, as a child, was sheltered from the Nazis and later fought in the revolution against Hungary’s communist regime
- Learn about the past, present, and (socially-minded) future of Budapest's infamous and innovative ruin bars
- Partake in “Lomtalanítás,” an annual tradition in which spring cleaning turns into a citywide treasure hunt
