Angry Parsnip asked yesterday about Czech food.
And yes, it's wonderful and we ate lots and lots of it. Probably too much.
But I'll start off with the drinks...
Well, there's beer - lots of it and very good indeed according to the beer drinking part of my family. There is a Beer Museum - really a bar - where you can have a tasting menu of five or ten types brought to you in a wooden glass container. (Guess which is my drink!)
You can go to the Yellow Tiger where Bill Clinton drank with Vaclev Havel
and admire the decor unchanged for years and years (note wonderful beer brawl print.)
You can have swanky drinks - I had a Bellini - at Hotel Pariz
or coffee severed with water and a tiny candy
and glorious cakes
Here is a pig's kuckle waiting to be devoured
and pork ribs and potato pancakes and mashed potato and breaded cauliflower. You could do OK as a vegetarian here but meat-eaters will do better, I think.
This is a meal that defeated us - potato dumplings, bread dumplings, duck, sauerkraut, red cabbage, pork and ham all on one place.....wonderful stuff but we could have shared with each other...
After that we had to have a night off and ate Italian...
An inviting look into a charming rustic restaurant.
But here is the piece-de-resistance -trdlo - dough cooked over open coals wrapped round metal poles. Rolled in sugar and cinnamon and nuts and eaten as you walk along...
My daughter's idea of heaven.
Though I love food, I'm not really obsessed with it, so apologize for the ho-hum photos.
