Warning: This post is not for vegetarians. Royal Hus Hentesaru Pecsenye in Budapest near the Nagy Diófa utca. And as the name implies, this is a butcher store that sells different cuts of the different types of meat. Other than fresh pork, beef or poultry, you can find authentic Hungarian sausages, lard (szalonna), cracklings, breadcrumbs coated chicken cutlets. There is usually one or two small high tables, where customers can pick their choice of the sinful (but delicious) item and eat right on the spot (standing). Traditional butcher serves you and they serve it on paper plates. They also have mustard or ketchup as condiments and the pickled cucumbers or paprikas and cabbages to go along with it. And oh, they serve it also with Hungarian bread (kenyer). I know, already so full pack with carb, but you can’t just eat the Hungarian sausages (kolbasz) with mustard, you must eat it together with the Hungarian bread!
This is a surely ‘must see’ when you are in Budapest-The parliament building which has one of its famous parts that has a hexadecagonal (16-sided) central hall. Chef Rose, our guest photographer captured this during her visit to Budapest and she also fell in love with the very crispy Langos, especially the one at Fény Utcai Piac
Hungarian sausages are really delicious and I think if you are visiting Hungary, you must at least try these handmade ones by the local people. They smell so good even in a distance! What’s more when it is cooked in a casserole? Wallop some sour cream (the Hungarian Tejföl), it’s a taste you probably can remember for long and co-relating it to Hungary each time.
