Where to find Hungarian ingredients?

  • 6

I'm planning on getting back into cooking Hungarian dishes, which I haven't done for ages. Where (downtown if possible) can I find Hungarian ingredients, particularly good quality Hungarian paprika and fresh parsley root? The long gone Elizabeth Delicatessen on Bloor used to be my go-to place but now I don't know where to look.

  1. I get fresh parsley root from Longo's and paprikas from Highland Farms--both far west GTA sources. Paprikas shouldn't be hard to find downtown(?).

    1. Not located downtown but Blue Danube in Etobicoke is a great place for all things Hungarian.

        Blue Danube for sure, also Honey Bear on 249 Sheppard West.

          Second Honey Bear. I took my Hungarian-born dad there a few months back for the first time and despite the tiny size of the place, he found everything he was looking for.

      2. Köszönöm szépen for the quick replies!

        1. Downtown it's not but there is a good selection North of Steeles, East side, In the small plaza, next to Noah's and What a Bagel. And I thing you could find what you are lloking for on Bloor, across from Ed's.
