Everything is better fried. Case in point ... cheese. Sure, it's one of the most amazing foods, well, ever. Now dip it in a little batter and fry it -- voila! A crisp crust yielding to oozing, molten curds. Brilliant.
Now, for a little pop quiz: What's better than fried cheese? - Fried bread that's been rubbed in garlic and topped with cheese, of course. If you've never had the Hungarian fried bread langos (laan gosh), then you really should get on that.
A cross between a carnival zeppole and pizza, it reaches its most delicious, and heart-attack-causing, point with the addition of sour cream. Though the best versions are hoarded by our buddies in Hungary, where it makes a regular appearance at fast-food restaurants and breakfast tables, some excellent specimens have been spotted at street fairs in London.
What is the "Lángos"? (Wikipedia)
"Lángos can be made with yoghurt, sour cream or milk instead of water, a dash of sugar along with salt and sometimes with flour and boiled mashed potatoes, which is called Potato Lángos (in Hungarian Krumplis lángos or Krumplislángos). It is eaten fresh and warm, topped with sour cream and grated cheese, or Liptauer, ham, or sausages, rubbed with garlic or garlic butter, or doused with garlic water. Other ingredients and accompaniments can be mushroom, quark cheese, eggplant, cabbage, kefir, omelet, a confectioners' sugar, or jam.
Lángos may be cooked at home or bought from street vendors.
Traditionally lángos was baked in the front of the brick oven, close to the flames. It was made from bread dough and was served as breakfast on the days when new bread was baked. Now that people no longer have brick ovens and do not bake bread at home, lángos is virtually always fried in oil.
Lángos is sold at many fast-food restaurants not only in Hungary but also in Austria. In Austria, especially in Vienna, lángos is very popular as a fast food at fairs and in amusement parks like the Prater. Lángos is known in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Croatia as langoš, in Serbia as languš (although it is commonly called "Mekike"). It is also popular in Romania.
Lángos is very similar to a version of frybread made by the American Indians."
