Alchemist (Alkimista in Hungarian) is a dining restaurant provided for 18 guests in the heart of the historic city or Szeged. We offer a seven-course tasting menu in the name of slowfood and the dinners are guided by the chef personally. The modern style interior in the old milieu reflects the conception of our cuisine: we work in a 21st century perception but based on fine traditions and time-honoured culinary cultures. We favour local ingredients and, keeping the rhythm of the nature in mind, we change our menu every two weeks. Alchemist is an open-minded, thoughtful modern restaurant with strong personal modality that attracts like minded, curious guests.
The size of the restaurant and the fact that we are able to coordinate the reservations allow us to work smart our workplan is environmentally conscious and we also collect the rubbish selectively. With this concept we don’t waste food, time or energy. In our cuisine the interpretation od modern but forgotten ingredients is frequent, for example we often build vegetables and herbs in our dessertd. Fancied ingredients are mainly local ones: mangalica pork, goat and goat cheese, river fish (due to the proximity of River Tisza), field mushroom, fresh herbs and edible flowers, sand grown root vegetables, sunflower and corn, buckthorn and camomille and many other things.
