One night in Budapest

goulash soup

... there was a very hungry couple who wandered all along the Danube harbour to get something hungarian for the last dinner in this hot and spicy and unforgettable city. As in every European capital, it's most easy to get a pizza or Chinese food in those countless street restaurants but with a little luck and perseverance you will find the desired goulash as well!

Ours was served in a round crusty bread and to my astonishment was neither fiery spicy nor too fatty-meaty. In fact, it was just great to whet the appetites and still leave some space for more palate pleasures.

As a slowly extincting vegetarian I was happy with a veggie feast that consisted of grilled zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, peppers and tomatoes, some raw stuff as a nice crunch note and adorable pieces of 3 types of cheese fried in bread crumbs. Do I have to report on awesome melting lava errupting from golden rocks and covering green pastures underneath??? Splendid.

My partner in crime had roasted turkey stuffed with sweet marmolade-like chestnuts and layered with wine gravy. Baked sliced potatoes making nice pillows for this lazy piece of dizzy poultry.

Well, I am sure that there are hundreds of more or less private reasons to come back to Budapest. But goulash can be always a nice thing to add on the top ;)
