We've walked by Gay Hussar a few times and finally decided to check it out during dinner one day. Gay Hussar is a very cosy and comfortable Hungarian restaurant that has been around since 1953 so it is pretty well established. Apparently, this is a favourite hangout of the who's who in the political world and they definitely aren't shy in promoting that. Photos and drawings of them line the walls but I think some might feel a wee bit uncomfortable having so many eyes looking down on you when having the meal!
The first thing that caught our eyes were the 2 fresh chillies sitting on the table which I suppose were for eating with the meal. I guess paprika which is heavily used in Hungarian cuisine is made from chillies or peppers so it was appropriate? Didn't see anyone actually eating it though.
For starters, we were originally planning to get the Chilled Wild Cherry soup which was very traditional Hungarian starter. However, when we asked the waitress what it was like, she said that it tasted like sweet cherry yohurt with lots of vodka. It didn't sound too appealing so we decided on
Both main courses we ordered were delicious but the
We were stuffed after the mains so we couldn't deal with having a dessert...how very sad!! Will have to leave some space for that the next time we visit Gay Hussar. :)
