Folks, after reading the daily bulletin from another expat site (Chew.hu), I simply had to preempt todays post and insert their photo. Why should I be the only person to have sprayed coffee on their monitor today!?
The original caption from Chew.hu: Via Pestiside.hu reader P.M. we get the above pic of a rather unappetizing menu offering, taken at the historic Hunguest Hotel Palota out in scenic Lillafüred. ("Quite an interesting 'inter'-course offered by the cook along with the traditional halászlé," is how P.M. puckishly described it.) Mercifully, a quick re-translation of the original Hungarian reveals it to be nothing more than a harmless bowl of rooster soup with home-made "snail" pasta. Then again, judging by some of the other cock soups that have been sprung on our readers, you can probably never be too careful.
