Steel City Chimneys serves up all things chimney cake. Yes, you read that right. A chimney cake, AKA a kürtőskalács, is a Transylvanian confection now popular in Hungary and surrounding regions. Named for their chimney-like shape, these pastries are seriously underrated here in the US of A. Luckily, the folks at this food trailer are righting that wrong by bringing these sweet things straight to Pittsburg, PA.
Chimney cakes start out as balls of handcrafted yeast dough. From there, bakers roll them into a cylinder shape and grill them on a rotisserie. This cooking method caramelizes the sugar, providing a creme brulee-like effect. Once they’re warm and crispy, the fun starts. Coated in either sweet or savory ingredients, chimney cakes make the perfect vessel for a variety of fillings. At this trailer, you’ll find chimney cakes filled with everything from ice cream to fried chicken drizzled with barbecue sauce. Eager to try this Transylvanian treat? Swing by Steel City Chimneys ASAP and do just that. Even better? Book ‘em for your next event. This unique vendor is sure to leave guests grinning, so it’s a choice you won’t regret.
