When traveling to different countries, it's always important to try their traditional cuisine. In Prague, you can eat a lot for very little (the Czech Republic does not operate on the Euro). I have to say, within the last week, I've loved every bit of food I've tried here. Not only are the prices great, but so is the service. Below is a photo of a kebab with three different types of meat (beef, pork, chicken), onions, mango, pineapple, and saturated in a sweet and tangy sauce (I haven't a clue what it is, but I do plan to find out!) as well as their Margherita pizza (cheese, fresh spinach and tomato) if you are a simpler person.
For my friend and I, both the kebab, pizza, and four cokes (they're really small servings), we spent maybe $25 = 500 Czech Crowns. Needless to say, we got back to our apartment and fell asleep! We were so full from our dinner that we couldn't move. This goes to show that yes, the portions are smaller, but they can be heavier.
A traditional Czech specialty was one that I was hesitant to taste, wasn't too crazy about it, but I have to try everything at least once. Czech dumplings and Goulash are a traditional cuisine, and can be found at almost every restaurant in the city. I tried the meal at three different restaurants, and they were are a little better than the one before. They may not look exactly appetizing, but don't let the presentation fool you because one of my roommates did in fact really enjoy it. Have fun!
This was the first try at the Goulash. Not too bad when you drink a cola with it!
