Prague has changed a lot in the past decade, but one thing that has remained unchanged is the checks food. It is one of the most delicious, hearty and home style food which is tasty as well as wholesome.
What makes it different is the authentic style of cooking and presentation which catches the eye. And whatever it is that you are ordering you can be sure that it will be in a fairly large portion, just the way the Czechoslovakians like their food
Here is a list of some of the most delicious items of food that you must try at Prague-
Guláš are actually more of a Hungarian dish which is made with a mix of ingredients slowly cooked into a pot like a stew or soup. But the Czech version has its own twist. The Czech beef guláš are all meat and no vegetables! Not even potatoes!
They are served with thick slices of bread called the Knedliky – and make a perfect combination which is best had by dipping it in the stew.
You will find Guláš and beef guláš listed on the same menu, which might be confusing as these are not the same thing. One is the beef-based soup (served as an appetizer), and the other, a thick chunky stew with meat and eaten with the bread or the Knedliky as a main dish.
This is a traditional to start to every meal. It is a soup like the “Fazolova”- the thick bean soup, with cheese and smoked meat and served in a clay bowl.
This is the Edam cheese with a thin coating of egg white and flour which is deep fried and is very crispy. It is a typical pub food of Czechoslovakia.
This is of course the most famous (and most liked) Pražská klobása (or the Prague sausage) and is made with paprika. This is a street food which you will find everywhere.
The spicy, “Párek V Rohlíku” is a Czech twist to the hot dog which is served by putting a sausage into Rohlík – the special bread.
Bramborák is also a street food. It is a pan fried pancake made with potato and is something you can have “on the go”.
The Palačinky (pronounced as pala-chinky) are the Eastern Europe’s variant of the French crêpes. In this, they fill up the rolled up pancakes with jam, fruits or ice cream and serve with a topping of almonds, sugar or whipped cream.
An odd name, this Czech biscuit is just another traditional staple food made in the shape of a coffin. It has hard and crunchy outer coating, tastes sweet, and is soft on the inside as it literally melts inside the mouth.
Strictly speaking, this is a Balkan delicacy – a national dish of the neighboring Serbia that has crossed over the borders and loved by the Czechs.
It is made from various kinds of minced meats like the beef, pork, lamb or veal shaped in the form of a burger.
