So, after three wonderful
nights in Prague and three unbelievably scrumptious dinners, I wanted to end our visit on
a high note. After the excellent recommendation of Restaurant Canto from the hotel
concierge, I asked them for another nearby, quality restaurant. He recommended a popular
international spot near the Vitava River. I explained that I was looking for somewhere
with a more traditional Czech fare. He replied definitively, "If you want Czech food,
go to U Svejku."
walked down to U Svejku and noticed the wood facade building and music coming from inside.
The atmosphere was the essence of Czech featuring all natural tables, walls, and chairs.
An old man in the corner playing traditional Eastern European polka classics. The lovely
barmaids were attentive and helpful.
I sat down and ordered the house draft of Pilsner
Urquell, the benchmark Czech brew since the 1200s. We ordered an appetizer of beer
cheese on sourdough rolls. Then, considering it was the last night that I would be in
Prague, I decided to splurge and buy the most expensive thing on the menu. The
"Peasants Plate" featured 1500 g of smoked meats and Sauerkraut all for
about $8USD. The meats were simply mouth-watering in their full flavor and marinade.
Thankfully, I was able to finish the whole platter and revel in the atmosphere and
If you, or anyone you know is planning a trip to Prague, make sure to dine at the U
Svejku restaurant for a meal to last a lifetime!
Enjoying a mighty feast at my favorite restaurant in the world.
Here I am enjoying a tall glass of Pilsner Urquell, the world-famous Czech brew.
I can taste it now. Mmmm!
