Oh.My.God. Amazing Deep Fried Burgers at Korzo Haus in the East Village!

Hell yes you read that right!  Deep fried burgers.  Korzo Haus is a tiny Hungarian eatery that serves amazing burger blends wrapped in a thin bread dough called "langos" and fried to perfection...which makes for an absolutely juicy and tasty burger!

The amazing thing about the burger is that as over the top as a deep fried burger may sound, the dough is actually very light and not bready at all!  Even more impressive is that it doesn't feel greasy when you pick it up to eat.  Also, since it's fried until somewhat crisp, the bread holds up really well to the meaty burger.  

Even better is if you happen to be in the East Village area as I was after work, they have a happy hour deal where you get an original burger (with Emmentaler Cheese, apple smoked bacon, mustard, and pickles).  

Here's my original burger (requested medium rare), which comes with these little fried dumplings called "halusky"with an buttermilk aioli dipping sauce, red cabbage slaw, and sliced apples.

All of the above comes with a pint of beer during happy hour for $12!  I believe this is just called a Korzo Haus amber ale. 

Closer view of the sides...

Close up of the burger...and yes it is as juicy as it looks!  If you look closely you can see the cheese and the bacon that is above the burger, but still perfectly encased in the bread, making this burger easy to eat! 

They make their own mustard, pickles, and even their hot sauce!

A look at the other burger options, with a vegetarian option that actually also sounds enticing... you can also look at a sample menu HERE, which goes into details for a few other dishes such as  Szegediner pork ‘n kraut stew, beef goulash, a bratwurst sandwich, and some interesting looking sides.  The menu also changes often!

This is definitely a MUST TRY place if you like burgers or if you simply want to try something new!
