Kürtőskalács on Lamma

Lamma Island’s many restaurants, food stalls and stores offer a variety of cuisines, from Chinese to Fish & Chips to Continental. The stores that cater to this small population of 6,000 (twice that on weekends) stock mostly everything from Austrian jams (Darbo naturrein!), to Marmite. One of the few things that have been missing till now were Hungarian Chimney Cakes (Kürtőskalács in Hungarian).


Fortunately, this sad state of affairs has been remedied by Roland who bakes them fresh every morning at the Prime Bar, next to where Tony dispenses his excellent offerings of soul-saving South American coffee as people rush to catch the morning ferries to work. The crisp rolls are mildly sweet and come with a choice of toppings including cinammon and chopped walnut. Both coffee and rolls are highly recommended.

Yung Shue Wan Main street, from 7 to 11 am.

    Kürtőskalács on Lamma? I never knew! Got to check it out.

    John, would you like to guest blog in the Lamma-zine?
    I’d definitely like to republish your blog post above, if that’s OK with you?

    BTW, my mother was Austrian, and it seems you have some Austrian family background as well?
