Spicy and rich, Hungarian Dishes are worth trying in Budapest. Almost everything has paprika. Here are the majestic Hungarian Sausages WTF!DSC01720Goulash is a staple food for Hungarians. It is basically beef (or chicken) in paprika and other seasonings.DSC01100Pörkölt and Paprikás -The word pörkölt literally means ‘roasted’ and the dish is made of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, pork or liver (varieties depend on the region) cooked with onion, paprika and other spices, resulting in a juicy dish served with another Hungarian gastro-curiosity, the nokedli (egg noodle dumpling).  (Wiki)DSC01105Never leave a country without tasting a local bee.
