In the Old Town

Faency Fries

As you can guess, this place specializes in fries with all sorts of toppings served in paper cones. This one was basically sour cream and chives.
The only downside is that they have no seating. It is a short walk from the Old Town Square, so we walked there and found a park bench.


Loki Burgers
Everyone enjoyed their burgers here. Here is one with goat cheese,
and another with bacon.

Their lemonade of the day (raspberry) was refreshing and delicious, though not as icy as the drinks at Alebrijes (see below).

La Piccola Perla
We all enjoyed this Italian place. I ordered the tagliatelle alla Emiliana.
DH had a mushroom and truffle risotto.
DD1 also had pasta, and DD2 had a pizza.

Choco Cafe (Lilova location)
I strongly recommend this place for chocolate lovers. There are lots of hot chocolates to try here.

DH tried a single-plantation chocolate from Peru.

I tried a hot chocolate from Cuba because I wasn’t sure when I would ever be able to do that again.

The kids each got a mix of chocolate, raspberries, strawberries, and cream.

Everything was delicious! And at the current exchange rate, the price point is comparable to Starbucks ($5-7), but the drinks are orders of
magnitude better. They also have desserts and light lunch fare that looked great, though both a hot chocolate and a dessert might be too much of a good thing. All the more reasons for repeat visits if possible!

They also have a selection of chocolate bars and hot chocolate mixes.
I really wanted to buy some chocolate to take home. The only thing that held me back was the summer heat: I didn't want to risk the disappointment of having it all melt. Unfortunately, they do not ship outside the Euro zone. I hope they start shipping to the US someday!

Mala Strana neighborhood, near Malostranská tram stop

Alebrijes Cocina Mexicana
One of the cultural differences that we bemoaned on this trip is how rare it is to get ice in your beverages. Well, this restaurant is an exception! Every drink was wonderfully icy, which was much appreciated on a sweltering hot day.

The interior was nice and cool as well, not in a US-blasting-the-AC way, but noticeably cooler than outside.

I’ve already said enough to convince you to stop in for a drink on a hot day. But be sure to eat here as well! The owners and staff are from Mexico, and the food was great. We enjoyed a range of tacos (these were norteños),

tostadas (al pastor, anyone?).

and flautas. They were happy to make the flautas with only chicken inside and nothing on top for DD2. She approved: here she has one flauta left alongside her side toppings.

Near Betramka tram stop

Restaurant Zlaty Klas
This place was walking distance from our hotel. They had a variety of Czech dishes, one of which was chicken wings and thus felt a lot like home. I had the Roasted beef in cream sauce with cranberries and bread dumplings. Yum!

Finally, I can't write a food-related entry on Prague without mentioning that it was at a corner store where we finally found our first lemon Fanta of the trip. We had come across several other flavors on the trip, but none had replaced lemon as our favorite, so we were happy to find it--so much so that the kids staged a photo shoot for it!

That wraps it up for this trip. Thanks for reading!
