The Hungarian Girl

Introducing: The Hungarian Girl blog


In honor of Saint Stephen’s Day on August 20th, a national holiday in Hungary marking the state of the nation. I’ve decided to feature a posting of the top 10 Hungarian foods.


10. Bejgli

Bejgli is a sweet bread roll filled with poppy seeds, raisins and walnuts. It is most often prepared for holidays like Christmas and Easter.

9. Sour Cherry Soup

Cherries are abundant in Hungary during the hot summers. This cold soup is wonderfully refreshing and flavorful.

8. Winter Salami

You don’t have to be Hungarian to recognize this famous salami! Winter Salami can be found all around the world including at your local deli. The salami is based on a century old producing tradition from the city of Szeged. It is packed with flavor and cured to perfection.

7. Debreceni Sausage

Hungarians are serious meat eaters. There is no doubt Hungary is well-known for having excellent sausages which includes Debreceni. This flavorful treat was named after the Hungarian city of Debrecen. It contains pork that is spiced with paprika, garlic, pepper and marjoram.

6. Fisherman’s Soup

Fisherman’s Soup also known as Halászlé is a hot and spicy river fish soup. It is a favorite among locals and tourists especially around the Danube and Tisza river regions.

5. Palacsinta

Who could resist fried crepes?

4. Dobos Torte

Stacked with several layers of chocolate buttercream and topped with a thin crust of caramel, Dobos Torte is a rich and elegant cake. It was invented by Hungarian confectioner József C. Dobosin in 1884. If your looking to indulge this is must have dessert!

3. Tokaji Wine

This sweet wine has a long and distinguished history. For centuries, it was the favorite among royalty such as Louis XIV of France, Gustav III, Peter the Great, and even great composers like Beethoven.

Tokaji Wine became the subject of the world’s first appellation control, established several decades before Port wine, and over 120 years before the classification of Bordeaux.

Today, it is still recognized as a highly esteemed wine and has won several international awards.

2. Chicken Paprikash

Tender chicken simmered in broth with onions and paprika then mixed with sour cream. A traditional Hungarian dish that is truly irresistible!

1. Goulash

There is no dish more known to Hungary than goulash. It is a staple in every Hungarian home. Although, it can be made in a variety of different ways, there’s no disagreeing that using fine ingredients like paprika is what makes goulash so great.
