Everything I Ate in Budapest | Simply Sojourns

I had been looking forward to Hungarian cuisine in the build up to my arrival in Budapest. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew I wanted to taste as many dishes as I could. I ended up sticking closely to the goulashes because they were super delicious! The portions were always generous and the price were very reasonable.

Makos Gruba

Mushroom Paprikash

These rose-shaped gelato cones are popping up a little bit everywhere, but I couldn’t resist. I actually went twice! I found this gelato stand in the square of St. Stephen’s Basilica.

Langos

Heavenly, flattened out deep-fried dough. Most often topped with sour cream, grated cheese, and doused with garlic water. Make sure to grab napkins because this greasy treat can get messy!

This coffee cake consists of cream spiced with cognac or vanilla, sandwiched between layers of almond meringue. The torte is iced with a fondant glaze and decorated with a chocolate pattern similar to that of the French millefeuille.
