Situated a stone’s throw away from the famous ruin bar Szimpla Kert, in the heart of the Jewish Quarter, the lángos stand at Street Food Karavan was established by Tamas and his friend, Gabor, in 2014. “We both had a passion for cooking and quality food. We often made big dinners for our friends […] We enjoyed it so much that we decided to quit our jobs and start a venture together,” Tamas explains. “We looked for a place for our lángos van and found a parking lot in the party area of Budapest, which seemed like a good spot. The owner didn’t want to lease us only one parking place, so we asked other food truckers whether or not they wanted to join us. They said yes – and so, Street Food Karavan was born.” The spot is essentially a courtyard of – you guessed it – caravans, serving up traditional Hungarian food staples and other comfort food. The lángos here is so delicious that it ranked in the Top 10 of EasyJet’s best street food stalls in Europe. “We wanted to re-invent lángos and make something new. We felt that, although this traditional Hungarian street food does have potential in the 21st century, it needs to be adapted to new cooking trends.” While it’s usually served as a flat piece of dough, Street Food Karavan gives customers the option to turn their lángos flatbread into a burger with either chicken, pork or beef.
