For me, Saturday night’s dinner in Pécs was a highlight. A few people had some issues with their meals, but they’d chosen a different menu. I had picked Menu C, which was the only all-vegetarian menu option.
Menu C Included:
1. Two pancakes stuffed with courgette and mushroom. Aka, a vegetable crepe. I’ve tasted veggie crepes before, but they rarely live up to their fruit-filled versions. Note: courgette is zucchini. The crepes I wound up with were deliciousness under a blanket of cream sauce. If these two crepes had been dinner, I would have been happy because they were quite enough for a meal. However, this was only the first course.
2. Potato with spinach, tomato, cheese and roasted vegetables. At least, that’s what the menu said, but what arrived appeared to be a sandwich, not a baked potato. I was wondering if they’d added a biscuit to keep the vegetables together. When I took a bite, I realized that the “biscuit,” was instead fluffy potatoes. I couldn’t eat more than half of this sandwich because I was nearly full.
3. Sponge-cake. When I looked at the menu, I was disappointed that the only menu I could choose had such a boring dessert (the other menus looked like they had amazing deserts). Then my plate arrived with three snowballs covered in chocolate sauce. They tasted more like sponge-cake ice cream, and they were amazing.
The entire meal was a little richer than my usual chosen cuisine, but it was a nice change from noodles and bread. I had a fabulous meal, and I honestly have no idea how to recreate any of the food. Perhaps I’ll try to look up similar recipes and add them to our Sunday-night cooking attempts.
