Personal Note: I have no idea that Langos is from Hungary, all the while I thought that this is a food from Austria as I first tasted it during my 3 months stay in Austria in one of the fairs I have attended. I tasted both the savory version with garlic butter and the other one with a drizzle of confectioner's sugar. I actually bought 2 pieces,  I ate the savory one for my lunch while roaming around the fairground and the sweet one, I savored at home with a cup of black coffee. I love Langos and the memories it evokes during my time in Austria
