I did some research before coming to Prague and was pleasantly surprised to find a variety of cuisines, including a variety of vegetarian and whole great food options. The evening of my first day here, I ventured into a restaurant in Dejvicka and had delicious crab risotto. In my first two full days here, I stumbled upon two vegan restaurants. The first one was all tofu (which I’m trying to limit); the second one had more variety, including whole grain baked goods.
I will resume cooking again soon, but for now, I’m enjoying the great restaurants. I’ve had excellent Mexican at La Cantina, creative vegetarian at Maitrea, wonderful Italian at Grosetto, fresh and tasty waldolf salad at Cafe Louvre, and sumptuous chocolate lava cakes on several occasions. I am keeping a list of places that I’d like to try and places that I’d like to revisit.
For those days when I do cook at home, there are two Vietnamese fruit and vegetable stands less than a block from me, and there are weekly farmers’ markets around the city (in certain seasons). The raspberries and blueberries are delicious at the moment with a balance of sweet and tart. I’ve added them to my daily breakfast routine for this season.
