Hungary’s favorite street food! Lángos (pronounced lon-gosh) is deep-fried yeasted flatbread eaten with a variety of garnishes like sour cream and dill or cheese and ham. Keeping with Hungarian custom, our langós is brushed with garlic and sour cream, sprinkled with fresh dill, topped with hickory smoked ham, Marieke 1-year Gouda cheese, and a dusting of paprika! Our dough is made tender and more flavorful with the addition of potatoes. Introduced centuries ago, lángos was originally baked and eaten at breakfast time on bread-making day in Hungarian homes. The bread dough was mixed, a fire was started in the wood-fired oven and then small pieces of the proofing dough were baked near the flames. This is how langós derived its name; “lang” means “flame” in Hungarian. As that tradition faded, langós evolved into a flatbread deep-fried in oil rather than baked before an open flame.
