Target: The Hungary Boy (Food van) @thehungaryboyau
Habitat: Foodtruck Parks, Markets, Special Events and Da Coffee Bean
Last Sighted: Da Coffee Bean in Braybrook
The Hunt: I haven't heard of a Kurtosh, or Hungarian Donut as described by The Hungary Boy, before I spotted some awesome photos of it on Instagram late last year. From what I can gather the Kurtosh, informally known as a Spit, Stovepipe or Chimney Cake from Hungary, is a strip of dough wrapped around a cylindrical shaped mould which is then roasted on a spit until golden brown then finished with a sprinkling of topping of your choosing. But I found that it's more like pastry than dough with the crust golden & crispy and the soft & fluffy dough on the inside of the cylinder. I loved the look of it once it comes off the spit as it stands on the cooling tray like a golden chimney with steam coming out of the top. I got the Coconut covered Kurtosh, which I loved literally tearing into strips and eating hot, but I would've been happy with any of the toppings available. Next visit I'm definitely trying the Nutella coated Kurtosh! You can catch them next at @dacoffeebean, alongside @poketimemelbourne, from 4 this arvo until 9 tonight.
Best Known For: Kurtosh coated in Cinnamon, Shredded Coconut, Crushed Walnut, 100's & 1000's Sprinkles and Nutella (for $2 more).
Last Known Location: Da Coffee Bean, 252 Ballarat Road, Braybrook
