    Since I’m Hungarian I was really interested what kind of meals you found tasty here. I’m glad you think our dishes are yummy, but I have to correct you: the picture you posted as ‘rétes’ is called bejgli, traditionally filled with walnut or poppy seed filling.
    The dough of the rétes usually stretched by hand to really thin and filled with lots of filling. It’s baked until the outside is crispy. Rétes mostly filled with sweet filling (sour cherries, poppy seed, apple, cottage cheese, plums, poppy seed&sour cherry) but my personal favorite is not sweet but filled with grated cabbage.
    Next time you have to try aranygaluska too, if you try desserts:)
    And the meggyleves that really hits the spot:)

    Hi! You have a wonderful collection of hungarian national food here. ?
    Just a small hint: the picture you used to represent ‘Rétes’ is actually another famous traditional hungarian dish, called ‘Bejgli’
    It’s made of a slightly more complicated dough then the strudel, rolled up with a poppy seed or walnut filling. ? We usually eat these around Christmas and Easter.
