What will you taste during our "Eat Hungary" gourmet tour?

Only delicious stuff! This Eat Hungary gourmet tour includes 8 tastings of authentic Hungarian food. On the menu, there will be a range of Hungarian cheese specialties, as well as a selection of Hungarian salamis. You'll also get to sample some typical dishes, such as ‘Lángos’ (fried Hungarian flatbread) and ‘Kolbász & Hurka’ (sausages and pickled vegetables). Of course, a gourmet walking tour would not be complete without a dessert. So, if you have a sweet tooth, you'll be happy to bite into ‘Túró Rudi’ (a small chilled chocolate-covered dessert). After that, you'll try ‘Kürtőskalács’, which is a sweet dough pastry covered in sugar (also called sweet dough chimney cake). But that's not all, you'll also get to taste a Hungarian Jewish cake with different fillings and layers, called 'Flódni'. In addition, the tour will give you the chance to sip on a glass of the popular 'Pálinka' which is basically Hungarian fruit brandy.
