When visiting the Hungarikum Bisztro we were given a booklet complete with their recipe for Goulash Soup. Here their mantra is to create a place where guests can truly feel like a guest would feel in their home, where the meals are prepared in a traditional authentic way.

If you find yourself in Hungary and would rather dine out than make this, then visit them:
