Can't go wrong with fried dough! Love the mural.


Cute mural! Reminds me of a commerical that had a luxury bird house:

Langos burger sounds like an interesting concept. Wonder if it's messy to eat like ramen or sushi burgers haha. I've only had langos from House of Hungry when they have events at Balboa Park. They are tasty!


Yep, you're right Junichi!

It didn't look too messy Elle. Perhaps you'll be able to make the trip to Budapest to try them out yourself one of these days. Nice to hear from you; hope all is well.

They serve langos every year at the Hungarian Cottage in Balboa Park during December Nights. That version has lots of garlic, which we love, plus the cheese and sour cream. A special holiday treat for us, but I bet the peppers version is even better!


lots of walking and the fried dough sounded lovely!


Hi Cathy - Elle mentioned getting langos from the House of Hungary as well. You can add garlic to the langos at most places in Budapest, though the traditional version just has cheese and sour cream....which is why I tried it that way. The version with peppers did have a lot ore flavor.

I did earn my langos Kat!


Looks like a great place to vacation!


It was Soo!


The langos reminds me of something I had at a food truck nearly 20 years ago, and still stands out in my mind.

I was in new zealand during the international street buskers festival, and all the food trucks were also international. The hungarian one was serving stuffed potato langos - I forgot what the meat one was, I got the vegetarian. It was a potato langos (very potato-y, more like a potato pancake) the size of a dinner plate, wrapped around sour cream, cheese, coleslaw, pickled onions and a skewer of battered, fried mushrooms. There was also a drizzle of mayo that I turned down. Man, this was good but I could only make it halfway through and was stuffed for the rest of the day. But wow it was good.


That sounds quite good H. Amazing how memories of food/time/place all come together!
