The Food Diaries: Langos in Hungary
After a long hard day at the outdoor spa, you'll find that you've worked up quite the appetite. So you'll be happy to know that the Hungarians have created a bready, cheesy and garlicy treat called Langos, which happens to be just the thing you need.
You're probably wondering what these delightful things are. It's quite simple actually. It's a fried dough that's a lot lighter and airier than a doughnut, which is then smother in garlic sour cream and topped with a very generous layer of cheese. I could hear my arteries clogging with each bite. It's a good thing I had the sound of gulping my beer to drown it out.
You'll find langos stands throughout Budapest. I can only imagine how good this would be after a night out. You know, to get that layer of grease to protect you from all the alcohol.
What's your favourite hangover food?
