Hungarian food is amazing for many reasons, and it is definitely worth a try. Unfortunately, travelling is not in the plans for many people due to the pandemic that put our travel plans on hold, but there are plenty of great places where you can try Hungarian food until you can finally arrive in Budapest.
In this beautiful country, you can find Hungarian food in Toronto. If you would like to try chimney cake, go to Eva’s Original or make an order. Eva immigrated to Canada in 1956, and it was actually her grandson, Justin, and his wife, Kristin, who founded the place. If you are looking for a Hungarian restaurant that has been serving flavourful comfort food in the Upper Beaches, Budapest Restaurant may be your choice. Another restaurant was opened in the ’60s and is still open today. Country Style, a family-style restaurant known for traditional Wiener Schnitzel and goulash soup, can be found in Toronto.
United States of America
Langos Truck in New York has all you need. There, you can try various Hungarian foods, not just the world-famous lángos. In Anaheim, California, there is a restaurant called Dunarea Restaurant, a Romanian business that also offers Hungarian food, such as goulash.
For those who would rather cook Hungarian food, we have great news. You can order all kinds of Hungarian products from US-based shops. Savory Spice has many locations in the US, and also an online shop where you can buy Hungarian paprika, among other products. Hungarian Meat Market offers a little more variety, from spices to meat and even honey. Another shop can be found in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but they ship nationwide. Hungarian Deli has even more variety. Looking through what they offer, I could point out some products that are definitely not Hungarian, but overall, I liked the products they sell. Just a tip from me: check out all categories, maybe you will find food, sweets or even other products you may like. I saw they even sell Baba shower gel. I would never have thought I could find them in the US!
Speaking of what I never thought of, I managed to find a Hungarian restaurant in Vientiane, Laos. Budapest Bistro even has Langos Friday, so maybe you can try it sometime. If not, just check out the menu.
If you go to any of these places, it would be fun to hear about them. Feel free to use the comment section and tell us about your experience. Until then, check out some other great places HERE, or check out some Hungarian recipes HERE.
