Visitors will find authentic specialties like Lángos, either simple, or filled with cheese, meats, or vegetarian stuffings. There will also be savory donuts filled with all kinds of fresh ingredients, like cured meats, chicken steak, salad, and so on. A colorful display of donuts will attract foodies with the perfect atmosphere to eat and be merry.
