When I was in Hungary for the 2010 ITU World Championships and Congress, I had the opportunity to eat some traditional Hungarian food. When I visit a new country I try to eat the foods that are typical to that country or region. On one evening, several of us visited an excellent restaurant, Babel.
Just for you, blog readers, I brought home a menu and photos of the meal. The boldface print is, of course, Hungarian. Take note of the number of special characters. The English translation is second, followed by a recommended wine. I did not go for the wine with each course or cheese plate options. Sadly, I don’t have a photo of the second course. The dill foam was fantastic.
