These are our tips on how to save some money on food but still enjoy Prague:

ENJOY GROCERY SHOPPING

Fixing your own meals will be your cheapest option. Grocery shopping can be a real cultural experience. It can take a little extra time and planning but the cost savings can be worth the effort. For those who aren’t in the mood for preparing your own meal will be able to buy prepared sandwiches, wraps, and salads that range from about $5 at most grocery stores in Prague.  Pay a visit to farmers’ market. Not only is it a great way to find high quality food, but it’s also an exciting cultural experience. .

GET SOME STREET FOOD

Getting a meal from a takeout restaurant is a great way to get a filling, warm meal for a fair price. The most popular street food in Prague is sausage with bread and sauerkraut. And, of course, there are always plenty of cheap Kebab, Chinese and pizza places.

GO FOR LUNCH SPECIALS

Restaurants across Prague cut their prices during lunch to attract business people on their lunch break. Normally, they’ll have a set  menu with a few different choices. The meals are the same quality as dinner so this is a great way to have good food without paying a lot.

GET BEER RATHER THAN SODA

You will be surprised how much soda and bottled water costs in restaurants. Be aware that they don’t do free refills on soda in Prague. Sometimes it’s cheaper to have beer or wine:)

LEARN THE TIPPING CULTURE

The Czech tipping customs are different to American’s. You tip according to your satisfaction with the food and service in the restaurant. We Czech usually tip 10 – 15%. We normally round up to a nice number to make it easier for them to give you back your change.
