Slovak Street Food: Langos
Langos is a popular street food or fast food in Slovakia. I would describe it as a deep fried concoction of dough at its basic level. It's all in the toppings though. It is best topped with a generous slathering of garlic spread, cheese and sour cream, all for under a buck. You can also have sweet versions of it with different kinds of jam, or if you're a fan of condiments then ketchup and mayo are also a possibility. If you do opt for the garlic spread, keep in mind that it will follow you around all day, and I mean all day long. It's potent, but oh so good.
Turns out though that langos is actually a Hungarian dish that became popular here in Slovakia and now in Czech Republic as well.
