Hungarian dishes

Transcarpathian cuisine has absorbed the gastronomic traditions of Ukrainians, Hungarians, Romanians, Czechs, Slovaks, as well as Germans and Jews. Still, the Hungarian cuisine had the greatest impact on it. Most of the dishes that local restaurants offer are based on authentic Hungarian recipes.

Ukrainian food culture is unthinkable without the Hungarian cuisine, which is especially popular in the west of the country. The cuisine of the Hungarians is famous for its satiety, wide variety of dishes, as well as multiple interpretations of traditional treats. Other features of typical Hungarian food are an abundance of meat and paprika. The latter is so popular in Transcarpathia that they held festivals in its honor.
