One of the real treats in Hungary is the access to more reasonably priced caviar from Russia. When I go to Hungary, I never miss a chance to enjoy this delicacy either on thick Hungarian Blini or in some other preparation! If you're a huge fan like me, you might want to bring a jar or two of caviar home to enjoy later or to give as an extravagant gift. As with all food items, sure to check customs regulations in advance and understand what exactly you are able to bring back.
- Osetra Caviar: Ranges from amber to brown in color. Tastes deeply of the sea with hints of nuts and fruit. Undertones of herb.
- Beluga Caviar: Beluga Caviar comes from Iran, and you will not typically see it on the menu in Hungary. Beluga comes from the largest sturgeon. Pearls are large and slate gray with a deep, sea taste. The rarest and most delicious of all.
- Sevruga Caviar: This caviar comes from the smallest sturgeon. Expect small pearls with a mild, briny flavor with hints of fruit and a greenish black color.
