The 43rd festival will feature popular Hungarian foods including chicken paprikás, Hunky turkey (roasted bacon sandwich), stuffed cabbage, homemade kolbász/sausage sandwiches, gulyás (goulash), palacsinta (crepes), cabbage and noodles, pastries and a wide array of other ethnic foods on Consaul Street.
