HUNGARY — Five Traditional Dishes

Budapest Agent on traditional goulash / gulyás.

‘If you come to Hungary and want the goulash you should order a pörkölt, which you get in nearly every restaurant. Pörkölt is so popular that you even find festivals where Hungarians challenge themselves to make the best, with loads of pálinka and a big celebration at the end.’

Budapest Agent

Paprika, of course, is the essential ingredient, so five paprika dishes.

Lecsó — onion, paprika, green and red pepper, tomato sauce

Gulyásleves — beef and vegetable paprika soup

Paprikás Csirke — chicken in creamy paprika sauce

Pörkölt — beef / lamb / pork and paprika stew

Tokány — beef, mushrooms, paprika, pork, pork kidney, smoked bacon, sour cream, herbs and spices stew
