Gay Hussar2 Greek Street, Soho, London, London, W1D 4NB
This restaurant, dating back to the early 1950's, and during its time it was very popular with some political leaders of the left - making it a political shrine for that period. While, on the culinary front, it launched dishes such as Chilled Wild Cherry Soup onto an unsuspecting British public. If its dark panelled walls could talk, they'd have a good story to tell.
It still offers good Hungarian fare, including generally the aforementioned soup, while other starters such as 'Beef Goulash Soup'; 'Fish Dumpling with a Dill & Mushroom Sauce' and 'Mixed Hungarian Salami' might also be listed to tempt you.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Cold Poached Trout with Russian Salad'; 'Crispy Roast Duck with Red Cabbage, Hungarian Potatoes & Apple Sauce'; 'Grilled Sea Bass with Leek & Potato Cake' and 'Smoked Breast of Goose with Scholet & Red Cabbage' among the main courses.
A few desserts such as 'Poppy Seed Strudel with Vanilla Ice Cream' and 'Walnut Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce' are there to round off your meal.
