Hungarian cuisine is very hearty, nourishing, and for the uninitiated, sometimes spicy. Paprika is the national spice, made from red peppers, and is used in gulyas (goulash), the most popular dish in the country. Like goulash, many of the most popular dishes in Hungarian cuisine are soups or stews, such as the fish chowder halaszle, typically served with warm bread. Hungary is also well-known for its dairy industry, and it produces many popular cheeses such as Pannonia cheese. Hungarian cuisine is similar to its Central European counterparts, yet also manages to be distinct in its own right. To learn more about popular Hungarian dishes, click here.
