Balkan Gulas with Dumplings/Poppy Seed Pastries BBE 01/19

Rated 4.9/5 from 7 Customer Reviews

A classic dish with a beautiful deep colour...

Gulas (also known as goulash) has its roots in Hungary but the Austro-Hungarian Empire helped elevate it to national favourite status across Slavic Eastern Europe, including the Balkans. It’s always made with locally-grown paprika, which gives a fantastic rich colour and delicious, sweet depth of flavour – and it feels like just the right ingredient for dinner on a cold winter’s night! To finish, we’ve got flaky, cinnamon-dusted poppy seed pastries from Croatia called makovnjaca served with a sweet cinnamon sour cream dip.

Excellent service, only let down by the poor performance of the website on mobile.
