Best Hungarian Dishes

I noticed that my blog is full of “best hungarian sweats”, “best hungarian dishes/food”& co :)) And I’m not a hungarian girl. I’m just a girl who like to travel and to taste the traditional dishes of every country (I think that the food can tell us  a lot about people). And I fall in love over and over again with the hungarian kitchen.

I was in Budapest for the new year’s eve  and I have discovered 2 new incredible restaurants in Budapest and I want to share with you some good hungarian food pictures.

First stop, at the Szamos Gourmet Palace, placed on Vaci Uta. It’s a amazing place, very elegant and the dishes were just incredible. A memorable experience. I had a appetizer, fried goose liver with honey grilled apple, dried plums and the best mashed potatoes I have ever eaten (and I’m not a mashed potatoes “fan”).  The fried goose liver melted in my mouth; it was perfectly cooked.

The main dish, was steak a la Budapest; a well done beef steak, with baked potatoes and hungarian “lecho” (a vegetables stew).  Just perfect!

And the desserts…. Oh, if you love dessert, it’s the perfect place to be. It’s a pastry shop and one of the best hungarian chocolate manufacturer. It’s like in heaven: good chocolate, all you want made from marzipan, bonbons  and cakes.  I had a “gourmet selection”, 3 mini cake slices, the most famous hungarian desserts: the dobos cake, the Esterhazy cake and a dark chocolate cake, served with fresh fruits and chocolate bonbons.  And they were incredible.

The second stop was at Vigando Restaurant, placed in Buda, near Bathany ter (bus station). It’s a traditional hungarian restaurant, a cozy place with delicious food and great view to the parliament building. Here we had great traditional hungarian dishes: dumplings with chicken paprikas (best hungarian meal), served with sour cream, a delicious and big  main dish; a creamy veal soup served in a bread ball (crispy outside and soft & pufy inside), perfect for a cold evening.

In the second evening, I had a chicken breast with honey spiced sauce, coated in a pancake, with grilled vegetables. It wasn’t a traditional hungarian meal, but it was delicious, again.

So, if you ever go to visit Budapest, please try the hungarian dishes, they are delicious.
