Budapest agent on traditional goulash/gulyás.
If you come to Hungary and want the goulash you should order a pörkölt, which you get in nearly every restaurant. Pörkölt is so popular that you even find festivals where Hungarians challenge themselves to make the best, with loads of pálinka and a big celebration at the end.
Paprika, of course, is the essential ingredient, so five paprika dishes.
Lecso onion, paprika, green and red pepper, tomato sauce Gulyásleves beef and vegetable paprika soup Paprikás Csirke chicken in creamy paprika sauce Pörkölt beef/lamb/pork and paprika stew Tokány beef, mushrooms, paprika, pork, pork kidney, smoked bacon, sour cream, herbs and spices stew
