Eating the Globe: Hungary

Over the weekend, we drove down to Palm Desert for a mini-break. We went out to Chef George's, a Hungarian/European joint that's popular with retirees. The owner-chef was a big deal in the old school California restaurant scene and influenced the Velvet Turtle chain of upscale restaurants.

I ordered the paprika chicken. With the plate, it easily weighed five pounds. It's basically a box of pasta, chicken, and a buttery/creamy paprika sauce that was more sweet than spicy. And a dollop of sour cream on top. It was quite tasty, but it was enough to feed five adults. I barely made a dent in it and couldn't really talk for the second half of the meal. It was devastating.

The restaurant was a step back in time. I highly recommend it.

Countries tried so far:
Africa: Ethiopia
Asia: Burma, China, India, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam
Europe: Bosnia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Sweden
North America: Mexico, USA
South America: Brazil, Chile
