The retail store is comfortably stocked and has a traditional Hungarian feeling. Cookware and cookbooks are stacked throughout the store and in the midst of the store, sits a display case filled with fine Hungarian Herend figurines. There are fine deli items with numerous courteous employees to answer any of your questions.
Ottos has the greatest salamis, sausages and deli items important to many traditional European and Hungarian dishes. Ottos has it all! You can start with a simple Hungarian sausage and a bottle of imported brewed beer or turn into a "sophisticate", and create your own fine gourmet European meal.
Traditionally, in Hungary, at the beginning of winter, when the harvest is full-grown and ready to eat, it is cause for a huge celebration! All kinds of delicious sausages are made during the festivities. Fresh sausages are made and eaten first; and others are specially reserved for smoking and drying.
Otto's carries a variety of these fine sausages and salamis. The sausages range in many styles, such as: mild, garlicky, dry, spicy, mildly smoked or any of these combinations.
The májas hurka, (liver sausage), and tasty véres hurka, (blood sausage), are ready to cook to be served on a wooden platter, along with fine red cabbage braised in vinegar.
