Food and drink
You’ll find few more imaginative menus in Budapest, the dishes draw on (and ‘fuse’) Asian, African and European influences. The selection changes seasonally and the quality is generally good, although I’ve been told of misses alongside the hits (notably overcooked poultry main courses).
The tapas platter starter (you choose six dishes) is excellent.
The low-lit restaurant takes Africa for its muse, with dramatic wooden masks on the ochre-coloured walls. It all feels pretty slick and funky.
The service is top class.
It's very central - standing just round the corner from St Stephen’s Basilica.
A meal at Mokka can be expensive. Set three- and four-course menus range between 9,000 forints and 11,000 forints. If you go à la carte, you’ll find starters average 3,000 forints, mains 4,500 forints and tapas dishes are 600-1,000 forints. You can get chicken breast quesadillas for a fairly reasonable 3,000 forints, but the tenderloin steak with goose liver and coffee-flavoured mushrooms will set you back over 6,000 forints.
