Fast Food, Hungarian Style: Lángos
No visit to Hungary is complete without trying lángos, the national fast food.
A lángos is a deep-fried flat bread made of potato dough. It comes with a choice of toppings: garlic, sour cream, grated cheese, or all three. The name comes from the Hungarian word láng (flame) from the days when the snack was baked next to the flames of a brick oven.
The good news for Cheapos is that a lángos is the size of a dinner plate and so is an easy meal-replacement. Even a deluxe lángos will only set you back about HUF300 (€1.20; $1.65).
