What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

We adopt local customs so we don’t care about McDonalds or KFC, but have noticed that the Mexican restaurant in front of the Embassy is a favorite among expats. Lots of Hungarian cafeteria style fast food, pizza, Greek, Turkish, Chinese fast food. The best for Embassy personnel or anyone in the area is the small market Belvarosi Piac behind the Embassy since its first floor offers a dozen good restaurants from fast food to less fast but overall great food (vegetarian to heavy sausages to fish). - Dec 12, 2017
McDonald's, Burger King, Subway, KFC. Cost like in the U.S. The only other American restaurant: TGI Fridays. Lots of Hungarian cafeteria style fast food, Greek fast food, pizza stands, Chinese food fast food. - Jan 23, 2012
All the fast food joints are here--everything from Subway and KFC to TGI Fridays. I think the cost is comparable to the US. But there are other good/fast restaurants here too. For example, there are many falafel/kebab places and Indian restaurants that offer quick take-out service. - Apr 28, 2010
