DAY TWO OF two in Budapest today. Cold, great, beautiful, yummy! First of all, yes, I had a cup of coffee in Budapest so let's just get that photo out of the way:
But the real treats came a bit later at the Christmas market where we tried a few traditional Hungarian food items, such as:
Lángos - a sort of bread pizza. This one is cottage cheese and dill.
Yes, cottage cheese and dill "pizza". Fantastic!
For desert we had a few bars of Túró Rudi -- which is basically cottage cheese (curd, really) covered in a thin layer of chocolate. How is it possible that Kerri and I went 40 years without havingchocolate covered cottage cheese?
