Hungry in Hungary? 5 Street Foods You Should Try in Budapest

Budapest is the beautiful capital of Hungary known for its many relaxing spas, spectacular skyline and deep history. It is also well known for its foods – street foods in particular. There are few better ways to learn more about a city than through its foods. Here is a list of 5 street foods you should try when visiting beautiful Budapest.

Lángos

What began as a simple fried bread has evolved into a savoury deep fried bread with overflowing toppings of garlic, grated cheese and sour cream. These can be found throughout the city, on beaches and even poolside during warmer periods. This favourite will be worth every calorie.

Chimney Cake (Kürtőskalács)

The chimney cake was once a holiday treat but now can be found year-round. It is sometimes also called a hollow funnel cake. It’s made of a thin bread, perfectly glazed with butter and sugar and is served warm. To top it off you choose your favourite toppings which include coconut, chocolate sprinkles, cinnamon and nuts, among many others. It’s a great quick snack to grab while touring the beautiful city.

Gulyás (Goulash)

Goulash is one of the most popular Hungarian dishes and contrary to what many people think, it is a soup and not a stew. This dish, which is great for a cold day winter’s day, is made with paprika, spices and in some cases, classic meat, which give it its distinct flavor. This soup is like food for the soul.

Sausages (Hurka and Kolbász)

Hungarian foods are largely meat based and this food is a great place to start if you’re a meat lover. The simplest variation is sült kolbász which is grilled sausage. If you’re more adventurous, you can try hurka which is boiled sausage. There are two variations of this sausage – májas otherwise known as liver sausage and véres otherwise known as blood sausage. These are great dishes for foodies who love to explore new cultures.

Unicum

Unicum is one of Hungary’s national beverages. It is a herbal liqueur made with a secret family recipe of over 40 herbs. It is thought to have many medicinal properties. It’s mostly consumed as a shot in a liqueur glass with a meal or during social gatherings and certainly is an acquired taste but can become quite addictive as you get used to it!
