Yesterday I was able to enjoy one of my favorite cuisines: Hungarian! Love the stuff.
Hideg Megglyeves or Chilled Cherry Soup
I have got to figure out how to make this stuff.
BTW… for my acquaintance in Detroit who years ago told me about the fantastic cherry beer at De Hemms, off of Shaftsbury on the edge of Chinatown… I stopped in during the day (I avoid going anywhere near the place in the evening because it seems to be the wrong sort of bar now – blech – but during the day it is normal). Sadly, they don’t have that anymore. I asked the bartender and he said they were trying to get some. Alas. Perhaps that is why I chose the cherry soup for a starter instead of the other great things on the menu. That and the fact that it is Friday.
Then Kapros Gombas Halgaluska or Fish Dumpling with dill and mushroom cream sauce
I enjoyed the red peppers on the table as well.
It is getting harder and harder to find Hungarian food, I believe. I may have to return to this place before I leave.
Today I plan to take in the War Rooms from World War II and perhaps the Transport Museum. Both have been on the list of Things To Do for the longest time and I never get to them. Later, an evening Mass and then supper out with a priest friend.
