Step into everything Hungarian, and the only authentic Hungarian restaurant in Calgary and be prepared to eat very well. Rozsa, the owner, served us very well and explained our choices.
We had the Hungarian Cabbage Rolls (2 very large rolls with smoky pork meat) served with red cabbage sauerkraut, an overflowing plate of Chicken Paprikash and home-made Dumplings (spaetzle) and Breaded Deep-Fried Cheese served with Home-Made Potato. That last one, the Home-Made Potato doesn't sound like much but I could have eaten several helpings and was disappointed when it was gone.
Couldn't really decide a favourite dish. But the two of us couldn't finish what we ordered. So to ensure that we had enough for leftovers at home, we ordered up more Chicken Paprikash.
The surprise though, was the Hungarian wines. The Dunavar is a Merlot-Cabernet and very mild, a nice pairing. The best though, was the Tokaji (Yellow Muscat). We ordered more of this white wine. Outstanding and a little on the sweet side - which went very well with every dish we ordered.
This is going to become a regular restaurant for us. Wednesday nights are quiet and relaxing and Jonas'. You simply must eat here.
