Mmmm, gulyasleves (Hungarian goulash soup). I was on a hunt for this and found a fine example of it at Tabani Gosser. It was on the menu with four other soups, but it was no contest: I had to try this one.Gulyasleves is basically just a hearty stew, but if you like hearty stew, you'll love this. So my choice was easy. The boys had a harder time.The menu was quite extensive, ranging in price from 590 to 4000 forints. You could choose from wild game, steak, fish, salads, and desserts. If you feel like an appetizer, perhaps you could try the bone marrow with toast. I would have opted for the breaded mushrooms.The waiter was a delightful man who played a key role in the ordering process. Joel had ordered a pork dish as well as some pickle thing (sort of like an appetizer, but listed separately—there were lots of pickled options). The waiter said something about how they didn't go together, and he didn't bring the pickles!Jack tried to order catfish, but the waiter said they were out and chose another fish option for him. Jack didn't have time to protest even if he had wanted to!All the food was excellent. The guys both let me try theirs. I'm not even a big fan of fish, but that was good! It was wrapped in crepes and had mushrooms in it as well. Joel's pork was wrapped in bacon and cooked in a delicious sauce.I'd love to do a better job describing it for you, but I don't know all that much about food and its preparation. Just know that we were very satisfied with this dining experience. I would love to go back and try something new.When our waiter brought the check, he shook hands with Jack and Joel—and kissed mine.
