When I'm hungary for turkey, I prefer French cuisine.

lol kidding - goulash is one of the world's best beef stews; but overall I think I'd prefer Turkish slightly.

I haven't really tried any Turkish food - Turkish Delight is nice and Pide, but they're not really cuisine.  My folks are Hungarian so we eat lots of Hungarian dishes here - yum yum Thumbs Up

Hungarian goulash is one of the finest dishes the world has produced, however, there's not much to beat a good kebab regardless of where it comes from so while I'm not fully au fait with the real cuisine of either country, I'm voting for Turkey purely for meat roasted on a skewer.
Back in the day when visiting Germany I preferred eating in (the former republic of) Yugoslavian restaurants - their ćеvаp cooked on swords over charcoal fires are some of the best I've eaten.

I've had both, but not for a long time.  I'll go with Turkish.

I think I've had more Turkish dishes than Hungarian, so I went with that.  We have a restaurant really close by called Cafe Istanbul.  Good stuff.  Also belly dancing and hookah on some nights.

Turkish. Because of the mix of Eastern and Mediteranean influences.
Hungarian food does not arouse my appetite to be honest.

Both great--  I think Hungarian has a somewhat more refined quality (gulyás, paprikash, stuffed peppers); Turkish is more visceral (lamb, fish, bulgar, fruits) .

I'm Hungarian but I usually order Turkish döner, gyros etc (though I haven't had hands on kebab so far). They're all great. Gulyas and other Hungarian stews can be made in so many different ways, if made to my taste, they are great too. My favourite Hungarian meal is lecho (lecsó in Hungarian), which is said to be something like Ratatouille, but quite far from it.

Mindez elmúlt. Ma már tudom köszönteni a szépséget.

In Hungary I liked the pörkolt, which is basically the gulash as we know it outside Hungary. I remember Hungary having a good kitchen
Turkish food: I know kebab, which is nice, and we eat pizza often which is supposed to be Turkish (lahmacun) but is it really?
We used to visit a Turkish pita / dürüm place which has nice food in general.
Well, I vote "both".

I'm Turkish, and like our food. Now that I'm not too much aware of Hungarian food, I'm not gonna vote. I must have eaten somewhere sometime, without being aware of where its origin is. Sleepy

Not being a foodie, I imagine Turkish cuisine is essentially a blend of the Mediterranean and Oriental strands, courtesy of the grand Ottoman Empire of yore? I'd say, I have never tried any Turkish food that I didn't like (with the exception of the OTT-sweet pastries, perhaps).

Turkish cheese rolls are so good.

Hungarian cuisine has become a culinary melting pot of Turkish influences. But also Slavic and German. So it's an easy choice. Both.

Interesting to see this poll come back up after a few months dormant and so few voters.  Maybe we can get few more participants.

Hungarian was once very unique and famous worldwide. Mostly game (boar, partridge, deer etc...) . n fact it once had the greatest restaurant back in the 30s , the Gundel .
