Lady kept asking me if I want the cream, the rice, the bread, etc. When it's time to pay, the price is going to scare you. Mine summed up to over 3000 HUF for rice and goulash. That's almost restaurant price.

Depends what souvenirs, the foods cheaper then England & you can get a bottle of wine for £2! I'd say £100 if you're not planning on eating out (gyro & pizza takeaways are cheap #yummy)
