Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Meals in Praha
Among all the places we visited last year, I must say that Prague is one of my favourites, particularly when it comes to gastronomic delight. I shall return to Prague if only for the food, really.
Our first meal was in this place which I visited back in 2011. I recall falling in love with the food so I vowed to return. Everything was exquisite.
However, our experience was nearly ruined by a group of tourists, quite elderly – possibly retired, sounded American, Republicans from the look of them, smoking huge tobaccos which they felt they were entitled to do because they were outdoors. Granted, that is true. However, when the ashes from their tobaccos fall into our food, it isn’t such a grand experience.
And as people moved further away from them (us included), they had the gall to actually feel offended because they feel that it is their right to smoke in a rightfully-smoking area – which they even verified in a loud, obnoxious voice from the waitress, hoping for some kind of affirmation/support for their atrocious behaviour. Truth be told, I have no words for this sense of entitlement, this lack of sensitivity towards other people, the inability to go beyond one’s self and to just exercise simple thoughtfulness to other people’s possibly untoward experiences. Ok, rant over. This is after all, a photo journal, a travelogue of sorts which we share every Tuesday.
So here are some pictures of the luscious food that somewhat made up for the other guests’ inconsiderate and thoughtless actions – but definitely marred our experience in this place. We’d probably not return to this place, even as we make plans to go back this year.
Restaurace U Kozla
Now this place was recommended by our AirBnB host and for good reason. This, apparently, has been in existence for quite awhile now in Praha – and is not known to most tourists.
The food is really cheap and just so delicious that we went to this place TWICE!
Soup to warm us up.
Prague is famous for its pork knuckle – and so we had it everyday. It is also famous for its fried cheeses – which we also had every single day. My daughter prefers cheese to chocolates – as can be seen here.
I forgot what this one is called – a sandwich with meat and onions – absolutely yummy.
Ice Cream with A Twist in Prague
I saw photographs of this particular dessert being shared on Facebook – and it reminded me that hey.. we’ve been to that place! This was right after we went to the Klementinum Library and we were famished from walking up those steps to reach their astronomical tower that overlooks the entire gorgeous city.

Mandatory photo – but of course.
Must be French onion soup, if I am not mistaken.
To wash one’s hands.
Writing this post is definitely making me famished.
You can not go wrong with pork knuckle while in Prague.
Did I say they have the best fried cheese?
And dessert. My heart. I am looking forward to returning in a month or so.
