Prague Food edition "Corner view Fire"
The first thing you should know about Prague is that food is expensive. I think it has to be one of the most expensive places in terms of food we have ever been too. Now I don't mind paying for a good meal, but if you do a sit down dinner in Prague you will find a lot of filler on your plate such as potato dumpling, bread dumpling, and cabbage and very little meat (as shown in the last photo). I liked my meat, but the rest I could pass on. The second thing is that they have a fee for just sitting down that is about 10 euros or $13 American dollars. We didn't know this until it was too late. What we should have noticed was that no one was eating and just drinking beer. Actually, I don't know how the restaurants are staying open because we never saw anyone eating at them. Your best bet for food is to eat a great breakfast in your hotel. If you have a mini bar or fridge take some of your breakfast back to your room for later. Pick something up at the store (Billa). The other options are street food which is more reasonable like the Prague sausage that my husband is eating or fast food which there are plenty of but not cheap. A meal at McDonald's will run you about 8 euros. Just so you know they don't use euros in Prague, but the Cech crowner; however, I am using that as a point of reference. My favorite of the street food was the Trdelnik a pastry wrapped around a wooden stick that is cooked over hot coals then dipped into vanilla sugar. The second would be the Langose which is Hungarian fried dough topped with Nutella. I think if we were ever to go back, we might try going outside the city for a good meal. I am sure the prices might be cheaper. Definitely a tourist trap or as my husband calls it a TT.
