Today I went to Hortobagy, a quiet, distinguished Hungarian place, for the first time in several years, and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. Our table had two different types of soup; I had the "Wedding Soup," a thin but flavorful broth with beef, chicken, vegetables and semolina dumplings, and my lunch companions both had the special bean soup, which also had sausage and other ingredients. Both were delicious, expecially the bean soup. My entree was the Oven-Roasted Pork, which came with a 2mm-thick slice of bacon, sliced potatoes and red boiled cabbage. Everything was very good, especially the very flavorful and tender roast pork. My companions gave me a nice breaded mushroom and some lovely special Transylvanian Gulash. The chestnut torte I had for dessert was pretty good, too, although not on the same level as the soups and entrees. The Hungarian waitress was very nice and effective, also.
