Lángos are a Hungarian snack that are also popular in Vienna. They are fried flat bread served fresh out of the hot oil, and my favorite rendition involves a healthy dose of garlic on top. They are pretty much a street food: I’ve seen them at stands in Prater and the zoo, in the Christmas markets, and at my beloved snack shack in the Bauhaus parking lot.

This past weekend I learned that they are also available at the beach, because nothing says “waterside fun” like a large piece of fried bread and a can of beer:

That is my husband showing off the lángos; my arms are not that hairy.

In all seriousness, these are one of my and my childrens’ favorite snacks. Yes, “chidlren” in the plural! Considering the recipe looks easy and I know it’s something everyone in the family will enjoy, I am going to try to make a batch later this week. If all goes well I will share the recipe. Fingers crossed!
