Torkos Csütörtök takes place in February, where many of us visit restaurants in the hope of finding new flavours and places to eat. Due to the fact that we can try various meals on half of their price we try places which are ordinarily fall into the luxurious category.
However, there are people who do not have the opportunity to eat in restaurants, not only on this special day, but maybe never. Unless we do something about it…

That is why we, at the Budapest Bike Maffia, had a thought and surprised the tenants at the Aszódi Street homeless shelter. We have provided more than 300 portions of the „classical” Sunday lunch menu.
Well, it is true that we did this on Thursday and not on Sunday and it wasn’t lunch but dinner, but this does not change the essence of the idea. The menu was: broth, schnitzel, mashed potatoes with nutmeg, homemade pickles and some dessert. Why did we choose this menu? Because this is the meal that brings back childhood memories, homely moments, or if someone did not experience these even in his childhood, he might have a chance to take part in it now.

We have repeated this initiative and in that case we have personally served the festive menu to the tenants of the Táblás Street temporary hostel. To make the atmosphere even more similar to a restaurant we have played some music as well.

The Szimpla Kert and the Élesztő helped us to organize these events.
