Enjoy a Plate of Gypsy Cabbage at Hungary’s First Roma Restaurant

In some restaurant news you probably won’t use but might very well find interesting, Hungary’s first Roma restaurant opened last week out in Békés. We waited a bit to see if a website, picture or just an address would pop up, but alas, all we have is news reports like this to go by.

Owner Géza Ásós was quoted by the press as saying that the new joint – called Kira – will focus on serving traditional Roma/Gypsy dishes, including “Gypsy cabbage with hen” (cigány tyúkos káposzta), “chicken back with dowry” (csirke farhát móringgal), “duck neck with pasta cut with a knife” (kacsanyak késsel vágott tésztával), and, we imagine, some of the other standards of Hungarian Roma cuisine. (Read more about them here.) He also said the restaurants other aim is to “keep prices low.”

Interestingly, the chef of the place is apparently not Roma. However, we can only assume that the “authentic, genuine Gypsy folk music” Ásós promises will be played by musicians who are.
