When the rest of Maddie’s friends arrived (currently studying abroad in Copenhagen), she suggested we hit up a nearby street food market called, Karaván, for a traditional Hungarian food called lángos. Lángos is basically a savory funnel cake (so fried dough) served with sour cream and cheese on top – it kind of looks like pizza. This is the first time I have gotten it while I have been here – I had it once last year when I visited Budapest and I am glad I have held out so long, because it is the kind of thing that you oughtn’t eat very often…

Karaván has several different food trucks that serve all sort of things. The lángos truck had a few variations that were quite elevated. One of the truck’s specialties is a lángos burger, so the bun is actually fried dough, that a few of the girls ordered and they said it was delicious. But you could also get a traditional lángos with any topping they had, including sauteed peppers, arugula and even chicken paprika!

Afterwards, we popped into Szimpla Kert’s weekly Sunday farmers market – very cute. We walked around, bought some artisan jalapeño mustard (Marmaladys), and more fresh herbs because why not…
