MÁK’s concept is to offer state-of-the-art gastronomy to foodies from all walks of life, in a relaxed unpretentious atmosphere. The chef of MÁK, Janos Mizsei, at a remarkably young age of 24 has won several awards. He was named the best young chef of Hungary 2014, while the restaurant has been recommended in numerous international publications such as The New York Times, the Michelin Guide, Time Out and Lonely Planet. Mr Mizsei uses the finest, seasonal ingredients to compose dishes that are innovative and highly creative, though not too fussy, but irresistible to even the most discerning palates. He loves playing with different textures, acids and unusual combinations of ingredients. While respecting the culinary traditions of Hungary and local ingredients, MÁK’s style of creation and presentation as well as simplicity can be originated from the best practices of Scandinavian Cuisine.
The prestigious “Most talented young chef of the year” title went to 22-year-old János Mizsei chef at Mákxpatloop.hu
