Last month I stopped by what I would call a gem of a restaurant. A hidden treasure on East 7th Street in the East Village; Korzo Haus. Rarely in my life have I eaten Middle European cuisine, but that is what is being served here, or as their website spells and states it, "Mittle European Komfort Fare".
We started with a tasty and flavorful spicy Hungarian goulash ($13), slow-cooked paprika beef brisket stew, onions, peppers, and served with crispy rustic spatzle. This dish had just the right kick to it too.
And then was there very popular Korzo Burger. This burger seems to be very popular among foodies in the know. It is a unique style of burger because it is wrapped in langos-Hungarian fried bread. We got the original ($13), a fresh ground beef patty, apple smoked bacon, allgauer emmentaller cheese, mustard, and dill pickle. It was juicy and fantastic. The fried bread, adding another layer of texture. It's a great burger. The hulusky fries (potato spatzle) were fantastic too.
So for a unique culinary adventure, take a trip to East 7th street, and be comforted by some Middle European fare.
