Your next delicious treat should be Hungarian
Last night I was invited to sample Hungarian Langos made by Joseph at the Old Museum Night Time markets. When we arrive the markets were very quiet which was great for us because Joseph informed us that at the markets earlier that week he had a line of 30 people for well over an hour. I was interested before, but knowing these unique Hungarian delicacies were that popular, I was beginning to salivate. Langos are made from a sour dough base, which Joseph fries only after an order is placed to ensure they are served warm. Each Langos has a layer of crushed garlic and if you want, which we definitely did, you can add a layer of cheese and sour cream
Whilst we watch my new favorite treat being created before our very eyes, another customer walked in through the gates and straight up to Joseph's stall. I'm guessing she was a very happy returning client as she seemed to be on a mission to get to Joseph's stall. Plus, when asked whether she had consumed one of these yummy creations before she replied, "many, many times," before chowing down.
After our yummy half-and-half creation was complete, the hubby and I took a bite each and both instantly agreed it was some of the best market food we had ever tasted. Seriously, we were so concerned about getting the delicious Langos into our bellies that we pretty much ran for the nearest table.
However before leaving his stall, Joseph did give us one piece of advice; "they go best with beer." So in between gobbles we grabbed an ice cold one and then contently guzzled the whole thing up. Turns out we were both massive fans of the cheesy variety and I know when I see Hungarian Langos during my next market visit, that will be the food item I order.
Langos and beer. YUM!
I should also mention, and I didn't really notice this till later, that these yummy treats are huge! We should have noticed earlier considering we had to share our one delicious Langos. After finishing it I waddled back to the car with a very full belly knowing that during our next visit to the markets we can feed the both of us for $8. What a deal!
