Kocsi Csárda Lunch Experience (Heviz Hungary)

The sun was scorching at noon when we were looking for aplace to have our lunch. The hotel (link to previous post) where we are stayinghas given us an offer that if we eat in their partner/recommended restaurant inthe center, we will get 10% discount. It’s our first day in this city/place sowe tried to go to this place. It’s called Kocsi Csarda. It’s situated in thecity center, a few hundred meters away from the hotel.

I am not a big eater so I always take a “pass” forappetizers. I had my main dish and a bottled of sparkling water. Amo on theother hand has a weakness with preserved/conserved meat so he took a portion ofmixed conserved meats. Before ordering, we asked how big/small are the portionsand we were advised that they are just enough for a person. It’s not true, asAmo did not finish his appetizer and he did not have any space t all tocontinue for another dish. I could not ask for dessert either as I was so fullof what I ordered. It was however apeasant meal, w were both contented with the taste.. And though the portionsare too much, we are not actually complaining.

If you are not really an eater but would like to taste everything, half portions are allowed at 70% of the full portion.

The dish I ordered: "Fűszeres csirkemell chili mártással" (braised chicken) with "Piritott burgonya" (fried potatoes
in pan
The taste of the above dish was yummy but a little bit salty. But maybe it's normal, I notice that generally, the dishes here are saltier than normal. Presentation? Hmmm...it's warm, yes but eating in the pan? Does not seem so smart... and the presentation does not seem that good. It was very saucy but the sauce is salty (in fact saltier). The portion is so much for women who watch out their weight.

The Interior of the place, no one's there as the sun was so lovely to miss... It was a very nice weather.


Analising the Hungarian menu...>=) Later we were given the English one...


The unending appetiser.... Too much in volume too...
The service was quite slow but maybe because it was peak hours. The waiters speak German but not English. Though I could manage a bit, I am not that ready to converse in German yet, especially 80% of the customers are either Germans or Austrians...

Ah, this was nice run down of your stay..interesting. It does look good but I'd probably agree with you on the salt-

The dishes look tasty, the restaurant looks nice. I too have a hard time with too much salt. I have cut down on a lot of salt. Enjoy your holiday.

@Regina,
Yes, I know from a friend who's working in a restaurant for many years who prepare really mild tasting dishes so those who are cutting on salt will not have problems. On the other hand, those who need more salt can use the salt dispenser's service...

@Randy,

I love stopping by at fellow bloggers' place.

@ Joyful,
Thanks for passing by... yes, I am not really watching on salt but I just don't like when I taste it..

I was always told the food isn't very good in that part of the world, but the food looks very good.

@Ratty,
I don't know that there's that belief about the food in this country but even back to Italy and the Netherlands, we already loved Goulash....:-)
