When you are in Prague just for a weekend and for the first time, then there are no excuses. You should stick to traditional Czech restaurants and try Czech cuisine. After you get home from your trip, you can have salad for a few meals to balance out your diet ;) However, if you are staying here for a longer period, or you have already visited before, then you should be a bit adventurous and think out of the box when planning your meals. One restaurant, which is excellent and certainly “different” is the crêperie (or palačinkárna) “U slepé kočičky“, which mean “by the blind kitty”. Despite the slightly morbid name, the place has a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere and is kid friendly.
On the menu you can, of course, find a large variety of salty galettes and sweet crepes, but also soups, salads, and international main courses. To drink, they have a very nice selection of wine, but also milk shakes (think cold flavored whole milk instead of malts) and homemade lemonades. All crêpes are prepared from buckwheat flour(!), so not only is it tasty but also healthy. You can find the daily lunch menu here, which is mixture of international and Czech cuisines.
If you are planning to visit in the evening, make sure to make a reservation. This place is packed especially during the weekends, in mainly the non-smoking part. During the summer months, you can enjoy an outside seating in the courtyard. The restaurant is located in Prague 7. It is not far from the city center, but you will probably have to use a tram to get there. If you do, you will have the chance to see a more residential area of Prague, which is a good way to get a real feel for the city.
Last note from us, make sure to come with empty stomachs, because the crêpes are really filling!
As in many European countries also in the Czech Republic we consider the end of April and the beginning of the May to be quite magical....
Easter in Czech Republic is likely to be different from anything that you have experienced at home. We have put together some Easter...
