A Food Diary of Prague

Eastern European food is good old fashioned comfort food. Meat and potatoes, in one form or another, make up the majority of the cuisine. Dumplings, goulash, and sauerkraut are among the staples found on every traditional Czech menu. You really can't go wrong with any restaurant in Prague, as long as you pick one that is not on a main square (if you go on a walking tour, ask your guide for a recommendation of where he or she goes!), and has some people already eating. Of course, when we travel, we play the tourist and take pictures of our food - usually before we dig in, but sometimes it looks too good, so we dig in, and THEN remember to take the picture. So, without any further ado, here's what we ate in Prague!


Always start with a Trindlnik. Always. And if it's hot, get one filled with ice cream!

For dinner, try a classic of meat with sauerkraut and dumplings!

Another classic with creamed spinach, which doesn't really count as a vegetable, venison, and fried dumplings!

Or visit the market for lighter fares - perfect for snacking!

This is the Czech version of ham in a crescent roll, but homemade and WAY better than the canned crescent rolls!

Garlic bread and cheese is a staple too!

And most importantly, wash it all down with a beer!

You can opt for the original Budweiser from Budwar, Czech....


Or go with another classic brew, Pilsner Urquell! Even Evelyn agrees :)

Note that no beer was given to the baby in the taking of this picture.
