Just by existing Goulash Charda (2215 N. Federal Hwy., Hollywood, 954-926-3355), one of the only significant Hungarian dining rooms in Broward and Palm Beach counties, is pretty special. Its status rises even higher if you add in the accomplished live musicians playing Gypsy music on ancient and authentic instruments. Now it has a lock on the competition, having just opened an Eastern European gourmet bakery and delicatessen. Feel like some dobosh torte, that heavenly Austrian pastry? Gotta have some homemade potato bread? Looking for hard-to-find Russian wines? Look no further. You ask, Goulash Charda supplies. I haven't felt this connected to my roots since my bat mitzvah.
