All served dishes at the Hortobagy Csarda are made from local ingredients, such as carp or catfish which are fished from the ponds of Hortobagy Fish Farm Ltd. This fishpond system is the biggest in Central Europe. The fish that bred in these salty soil lakes are the same tasty like those from lakes with better soil. But on the contrary: the carps grow bigger, whiter and more delicious. It is not surprising after all that fish from Hortobagy reached not just Debrecen or Budapest but Vienna, Praha, Varsawa, Berlin or even Amsterdam.
