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.
This Makos Gruba is a variation of the traditional bread pudding with poppy seeds. Instead of being more of a solid desert, this one from Fine Bistro was more pudding, less bread.
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.
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!
Beef Goulash Soup
A warm and comforting stew with tender beef, and soft potatoes and carrots. Perfect at the end of a busy day with sights and a relaxing soak in a thermal bath.
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.
