According to Wikipedia, “lángos” is “a Hungarian food speciality, a deep fried flat bread made of a dough with flour, yeast, salt and water.” According to me, it’s something you really, really have to try if you’re in Hungary – and this spot serves great lángos (I think it was once voted as the best lángos place in the city), so you might as well try it here. It’s greasy, it’s salty, and it tastes damn great – the ultimate traditional Hungarian street food.
To get here, you have to go into the Fény St. market (near Széll Kálmán Square), go up the escalator and to the far end of the building on the top floor, it’s on the right. There’s a good variety of toppings and additional seasoning in the dough, just beware – the topping can be piled rather thick, so expect to eat it on the spot, rather than while walking.
Seriously, why eat gyros or hotdogsfor street food when you’re in Budapest?
