Travel Treasures- Prague

Some of my favorite foods in my travel came from Prague. The Czech Republic is a much more temperate country than I thought so they served hearty warm dishes often.  Some interesting things I found was that the beer was less expensive than the water and the soup was always served in a breadbowl.  The traditional dishes included a meat, dumplings, and pickled vegetables.  My favorite combination was the rabbit with potato dumplings and spinach with gravy.  Basically anything that pairs well with beer you can find in Prague.  We had a pickled cheese (which I thought needed some sort of bread) and a toast with garlic and beer cheese.

The most surprising part of Prague was the Bakeshop which was recommended to me as well as popping up in my internet research.  We had amazing quiche, asparagus soup, croissants, brownies, breads, cookies, juices, and chicken skewers.  This is the only place we made a point to return to as well as the most expensive place to dine (although no meal was expensive).

There was also great street food from the footlong kielbasa to the freshly fried potato chips.  The only disappointing thing was the lack of breakfast.  The locals must party too hard to be able to wake up in time for that!

The only way to describe this amazing treat is through wiki.  We enjoyed the one lined with nutella most.

Pivo

As prague has the highest beer consumption per capita, it is only fitting to say we enjoyed quite a bit of Pilsner on the trip.  A light beer which has been brewing since the 13th century.  My favorite was the x33 beer from U Medvicu.
