For all the craptastic things about this city, one of the things I like about it is that there's always something that I've never seen before even though I've driven past it who-knows-how-many times in the last 10 years. Sunday I got to see another of those things. In Hazelwood there's a Hungarian restaurant that you have to call in ahead of time to get into, because it only seats about 16 people. As far as I can tell the food's authentic and not modified for the American crowd -- the guy who runs it immigrated from Hungary, and Hazelwood has a large Hungarian population -- and it was good. Goulash, hluska, paprikash, and a bunch of stuff I can't remember the names for (a lot of it involved pork). I wish I'd've found this place years ago.
