The odds are against you if you wish to try genuine Hungarian cuisine. The best dishes like stuffed cabbage take a long time to prepare and they are barely available in restaurants in proper quality, so unless you are couchsurfing with a Hungarian, you would have to rely on fancier restaurant’s reinterpretations of these. Or, you could try the Trófea chain which is an all you can eat buffet, but they offer a nice variety of these dishes. Also, check out the markets and try their lángos, which is fried bread dough, combined with a dairy product Hungarians eat regularly, tejföl. Watch out, it can be addicting! If you’re looking for something sweet afterwards, grab a Túró Rudi, a dessert of cottage cheese covered in chocolate.
