Last Night

Last night, after a good ten years of meaning to get around to it, I finally had dinner at Country Style Hungarian Restaurant on Bloor Street. Partly to commemorate the 52nd anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution, of course, but also because I was hankering after an enormous plate of chicken paprikash and dumplings. Delicious. They serve schnitzel at that place that is bigger than your head. Also surprising: that we had to wait a good twenty minutes before we got a table. And we were the youngest people there, which is unusual for a downtown restaurant. It was full of the most normal middle-aged people I’d ever seen in my life– not a hipster in sight! I hope the decor continues to be never ever updated, because it was so perfect. The food was amazing, and since I want to try everything on the menu, we’ll be going back again.

    Do they have good vegetarian options?

    Umm, they have *no* vegetarian options (except non-pork perogies) but I don’t know– it’s definitely worth carnivoring for.

    Kerry, this post brought back many memories. When I was a student, we all frequented Hungarian restaurants (including Country Style) because the portions were immense and the prices low. Decades later. as the cityscape continues to change, it’s comforting to see that Country Style still looks exactly the same. by the sound of things, the food hasn’t changed, either. Vegetables? Dream on…
