TORONTO’S TOP TAKEOUT: I’m soooo hungry for Hungarian, bro!!!

Now, a couple years back, when we hit up Country Style Hungarian, this little family-run joint in The Annex, I saw a couple college kids order the platter for two, and not even come close to finishing it. Ever since then, I wondered if I could eat all that by myself — and now we’re about to find out!

Y’see, Country Style’s platter for two comes with cabbage rolls, dumplings, sausage, potatoes, beets and not one, but two kinds of schnitzel — Wiener AND Parisian!

Now, the wiener schnitzel is the more traditional kind — crunchy, munchy, and so big, it barely fits in the container! Throw in some sour cream, and a couple potatoes, and it’s the perfect hangover food…and I ain’t even drunk yet, bro!!!

But if anything, I think I prefer the Parisian schnitzel. The meat is thicker, breading is lighter, kinda like a chicken-fried steak…gravy not included!

Cabbage roll was too legit to quit! Stuffed with all kinds of meat, swimming in a sea of hot sauerkraut — dude, Hot Sauerkraut was my nickname in Call of Duty, son!!!

But what really makes it are these Hungarian dumplings. They’re sorta like spaetzle, made with egg noodles and dropped into boiling water for that nice, soft, texture. Man, I could eat a whole container of these…oh wait, I just did!!!

Now, because they ain’t serving up Malnaszorp in a to-go cup, I’m washing this feast down with a Rosee d’Hibiscus from Dieu Du Ciel brewery. This fruity wheat beer is brewed with hibiscus flowers, giving it a nice, tropical flavour. Man, I could slam at least seven of these…if I wasn’t polishing off a full platter of food!!!!

Now, I know what you’re thinking — did he really just eat all that? Well, in the end I came pretty close. I only left a few beets behind…cuz you know what I say, why eat beets when you can eat meat!!!
