I didn’t think it wise to tell anyone that their infamous soup tastes like borscht. On the same note, I tragically “forgot” to pack the “Got Goulash?” shirt my mother gave me for Christmas.
I had my first taste at a place called Eklektika, just down the street from the Operetta Theatre. First impression is pretty okay: filling but not heavy, and you can easily adjust spices and seasoning to your taste. I want to try it at other places across Budapest too to get a sense of all the variations. Ultimate goal: make Hungarian friends and plead for homemade versions.
