    Paprika Csárda Hotel: A first taste of Hungary

    by Escadora7 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Paprika Csárda Hotel is the first thing one sees when entering Hungary from Austria via Hegyeshalom. It's a big complex of buildings on the left of the freeway, housing a hotel, a market, a gallery of shops, and the restaurant. In the back of the complex is a "Night Club", however, the ladies of this establishment are more interested in making the acquaintance of the truckers driving through....

    The restaurant is absolutely adorable - all wood ceilings, floors, and furniture, it is decorated in traditional hungarian style and it gives a feeling of warm welcome and cozyness. The food is excellent - but beware: the portions are quite large. A small soup each, with a shared main-dish is plenty for 2 people.

    When you open the menu you'll see 4 columns and might read something like this:
    Gözgombóc - Germknödel - Dumpling - Parenébuchticky
    The menu is written in 4 languages: Hungarian, German, English, Czech
    The Gözgombóc by the way is a steamed dumpling with melted butter, sprinkled with poppyseed and powdersugar - delicious!

    Favorite Dish: What is a visit to Hungary without trying the famous gulyás-soup. Paprika restaurant serves the soup in two sizes - either the small (which is a decent sized bowl) as an entree, or the large, which is served in a stewing pot, as a main dish by itself.

    I had a fish-stew, which also was extremely tasty. Can't really say which of the soups was better...

    Fresh white bread is served with any soup.

    If you have a taste for something sweet, try the Gözgombóc (see above). The taste might need some getting used too, since poppyseeds have a somewhat unique flavor (which goes amazing well with sugar and butter...).

    If you want something even sweeter, try the chocolate-palatschinken (thin pancakes). These are served flambé (see picture).
