Here's my latest find-I'm sure some of you already know about it, but here's my review
I had always heard about Novak's ever since my college days in Corvallis, but never been there until last week... why did I wait to go? The place was pretty busy for a Tuesday night and of course thats the best sign of a good restaruant.
The food here was fresh and very tasty. The soup actually tasted homemade and cucumber salad with yogurt was excellent. I went to Hungary about 10 years ago and the food here tasted almost exactly how I remembered food tasting in Hungary. The pearl noodles-I was very excited when I saw that on the menu.
The place also has a pastry chef and the tortes there are excellent as well. The makos torte(poppy seed) had 1/3 of the flour removed and replaced with poppy seeds. The waitress even informed us that if we eat this we would not pass a drug test. Since no drug testing was in my near future-I decided to order and wow was the makos torte good.
