It’s a smoking hot bowl of beef Goulash! Man was i excited with i saw the word Goulash. The last time I had it was yoinks ago in Budapest.
So what is goulash?
Authentic gulyás is a beef dish cooked with onions, Hungarian paprika powder, tomatoes and some green pepper.
Potato and noodles are also added according to some recipes.
Hungarian goulash is neither a soup nor a stew, it’s somewhere in between. In Hungary it’s considered rather to be a soup than a stew, so look for it among Soups on restaurant menus.
This thick, hearty dish was (and still is) a very popular dish among herdsmen in Hungary. They made it in a cast-iron kettle hung above open fire, out in the fields.Herdsman is gulyás in Hungarian, so that’s where the dish’s name comes from.
I wolfed down my soup because i was HUNGARY! (haha)

The Pork Escalope was divine… very crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. At only RM9.50… what a steal!
The mushroom soup was a tad salty but thick and rich.
Vary Pasta’s set menu of either RM10.50 or RM12.50 is really rather affordable, which include a soup of the day, main dish, ice-cream and herbal tea. The pasta dishes are of above average portions.

This the Honey Rum Chicken (RM15.50). Simply yum!

    Was the goulash good? I love the goulash at the Great Market in Budapest. Very hearty!

    I find the ones here lacking the “kick”. Not enough paprika I feel.

    Such interesting ways of serving the sausages…, they look like shapes of ‘porcupine, ‘banana’ and ‘blossoming flowers’. :-p But interesting place and cheap prices too. Shall check it out next time.

  • Lisa says:

    ate there today for lunch. pork escalope was good but the caesar salad was terrible – not enough dressing, no parmesan flavour. the dressing was insipid.

    i would go again though because the service was pleasant and the other dishes looked temptingly good.
