Croccantino


Ah I'm lazy! Whole month passed from my return from Budapest and I should write something about this beautiful city but I just can't force myself to start. Well, here're few words in my defense. I'm constantly somewhere, last weekend I was on the peninsula Peljesac (near Dubrovnik), at the same time I'm am preparing a trip to London for Christmas, New Year in Prague ..... So it's not just laziness.
But here's one short review of a nice pastry shop in a small, very beautiful and well-known tourist place Orebic located on the sea side of the Peljesac peninsula.
Like everywhere on the Croatian coast tourist season is over. And so it is in Orebic, peace and quiet. I wanted to eat something sweet, and since everything was closed, I didn't hope to my wish come true.

And then we found opened pastry shop Croccantino.
The choice was not great as it probably would have been in the heart of the summer season, but I still chose a tasty cake that satisfied my desire for sweets.
I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of full service. So if your trip takes you to Orebic - visit Croccantino.

My Hungarian Goulash


Recently I was in Hungary and my wish was to have a good, original hot Hungarian goulash.
However, as everywhere all became money and commerce so famous Hungarian goulash is no longer what it was, or what I thought it was.
That's why I decided to buy a spicy red paprika, and I mean very spicy, and make the atmosphere of a real Hungarian cuisine at my home.
Actually I've never knew a true recipe for goulash; I was looking for it on the Internet, in cookbooks that I got home .... everywhere was different written. So I decided to take from all a little bit and make a "my" goulash mix.

I used:
30 dkg of beef
1 large onion
3 dcl mashed tomatoes
3 dcl red wine
vegetable cube
2 tablespoons sweet paprika
hot paprika (carefully-according to your taste)
parsley, garlic, salt, pepper

Meat and onion fry in oil together, then add all the ingredients as it is written: mashed tomatoes, wine, vegetable cube sweet paprika, hot paprika, salt, pepper, garlic.
Altogether cook over low heat, the longer the better,  at least one hour.
Serve the other day. Yummy, delicious. You can serve it with boiled potatoes, which is my favorite choice, but I say again, it may be something else according to your wishes.
Imagine me eating spicy goulash, u, a, is there a bit of  bread, quick, give me... u, a, spicy....spicy!

Bon appetite!

Szamoz Gourmet Palace


Entrance
A few pictures are not enough to conjure up experience of sweet delicacies that are offered at this restaurant. We accidentally discovered it and returned back for more each day, twice a day. Since we practically lived off sweets, this time we didn't try  the famous Hungarian goulash; "sweet sin" OMG who needs goulash.
The service and staff are excellent. Prices are very reasonable.
It was a hot summer weather even though it was October and we were sitting outside, but when I went to the rest room I saw the interior of the cafe, beautiful, clean, neat... really  gentlemanly.


                   I recommend!
