Wondering what to eat in Hungary? We’ll lead the way through all the best Hungarian specialties from hearty stews to dreamy desserts.

GOULASH

No Hungary trip is complete without finishing off a big bowl of steaming goulash. This beloved Hungarian dish is made from a stew of beef and vegetables drenched in a spicy paprika broth and served with potatoes or noodles. This is one dish you’ll definitely want to recreate when you get home!

SOMLÓI GALUSKA

Somlói Galuska is the most popular cake in Hungary and soon to be your new favorite dessert. It’s more like a trifle, made with pastry cream, walnuts, raisins and three different-flavored sponge cakes. The classic way to gobble up this treat is by scooping three balls into a bowl and topping it with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Delicious!

If you’re looking to try Hungarian street food, look no further than lángos. It’s like a pizza, Hungarian style, made from deep-fried flatbread that’s crispy on the outside and pillow-soft on the inside. Topped with all kinds of flavors like cheese, sour cream, ham and garlic butter, this is one dish that will keep you coming back for more.
