I've written before about food-oriented tourism in Hungary. Hungary's currency has depreciated by 30% in the last few months, so it is an incredible bargain. Airfares are cheap.
I found that picture above on flickr. There are so many places in Hungary where you can eat great food. The idea of being able to do it at bargain prices is very appealing. You can probably just visit Budapest and get all the good stuff (including "mangalica") - but if you are interested in seeing live Mangalitsa, you'll need to get out of the city to see them.
I'm hoping that one day, it will be possible to go to a casual restaurant (not just one of the USA's best) and get a plate of cold cuts like the one shown above.
