The Lángos

Here comes the article for you to get pal with the famous and delicious lángos. Sure lángos is a real Hungarian food, and (ask anybody) there’s no market without a good lángos. We’re going to sharpen your appetite for one!

270752_1726777821431_3433216_nLángos [la:n-goʃ] is a Hungarian food speciality, a deep fried flat bread made of a dough with flour, yeast, salt and water - says the Wikipedia. Don’t mix it with the kenyérlángos, which is complete different dish. In the name ’láng’ means flame.

The perfect lángos has the diameter of cca. 20 cm, 2-3 cm thick at the edges, overall thin but not as a membrane, not oily, the colour is light brown and is freshly baked. You can choose from a wide range of lángos types. The most common is with cheese and sour cream and garlic but only your fantasy can delimit the variations. You can try it with sausage, cabbage, sheep cottage-cheese or even marrowfat or fruit jam. Try the first one first!

The best place to eat lángos is the markets, but you will find bakers on festivals, plages and lakesides. In Budapest we offer the Great Market Hall, in the side of Corvin Shopping Center, in the Garay street, The Kelenföld Railway Station, the Market of Fény street and the Market of Fehérvári Street.
