Gastronomy

The food of Hungary can be considered a melting pot of the continent, with its own original ingredients. All told, our modern kitchen is a unique synthesis of ancient Asiatic components mixed with Germanic, Italian, and Slavic elements. We are especially passionate about soups and desserts.


These local restaurants are amongst the best of the country, each of them representing the diverseness of Hungarian cousine, with locally produced ingredients used where possible. There are national and local dishes amongst many international ones with a ’Hungarian spin’ on them.

We help to visit the best restaurants in the area.

Transport (free) and English speaking guide can be arranged.

A dozen of the most’ Hungarian’ dishes mandatory to try when in Hungary:

1.,Halászlé - Fisherman's Soup

A traditional Hungarian soup of paprika-spiced broth and thick cuts of river fish. Fisherman’s soup is traditionally made outside, over a fire, through a several-hour process that includes preparing a fish broth from scratch. The fiish is usually locally sourced from the river Tisza.

2.,Gulyás leves – GoulashSoup

Known to most as “goulash,” this popular soup is a Hungarian original. It contains chunks of beef, potatoes, and vegetables, plus plenty of paprika and spices. Originally made by cattle herdsman, gulyás is pure comfort food: hearty, homey, and hot.

3.,Hortobágyi húsospalacsinta – Hortobagy Pancakes

A very popular type of pancakes, Hortobágyi, filled with ground meat, fried onion, and topped with a sour cream/paprika sauce is a true and unique hungaricum. Why it’s awesome: Slightly thicker than its French counterpart, palacsinta is less prone to tear when containing richer fillings (see above). More to eat = more to love!

4.,Sült libamáj – Roasted Gooseliver Slices

Hungary is the world's second-largest foie gras (libamáj) producer and the largest exporter. A true delicassy, roasted-or grilled- liver can be enjoyed as a stater or main course complemented with various side dishes and seasoned to make it yet another traditional Hungarian dish.

5.,Disznótoros hurka és kolbász – Pig Slaughter Sausagess

They come in a variety of meat types and flavors, hurka is generally boiled and kolbász is generally smoked. Both can easily, and tastily, be eaten alone or simply with a slice of bread and peppers, hurka and kolbász are also present in many more complicated Hungarian dishes, making them incredibly versatile meats.

6.,Paprikás csirke - Paprika Chicken

Perhaps one of Hungary’s most recognizable dishes, paprikás csirke is chicken in a creamy, paprika sauce, often served with (surprise!) sour cream. It’s hot, spicy, meaty goodness, and is generally accompanied by a delicious side of dumplings or pasta.

7.,Töltött káposzta - Stuffed Cabbage

It’s stuffed with meat and rice, which are cooked and then smothered with sour cream. It’s straight-up Hungarian comfort food. The cabbage in Hungary is often pickled, offering a deliciously tangy component to this rich, savory dish.

>8.,Bejgli – Spiral Strudel

A spiral-shaped log roll containing a sweet walnut or poppyseed filling. Traditionally served at Christmas, bejgli is the perfect treat to cozy up and share with friends and family.

9.,Esterházy torta - Hungarian Esterhazy Torte

10.,Gundel palacsinta - Gundel Pancake
