In addition to the liquid treasures my wife brought back from her recent trip to Prague (see: The Return of the Wife), she also took some photographs documenting her culinary experiences…
On one evening, she and some colleagues went to a restaurant with a medieval theme with music and other entertainment.
There were some unusual appetizers …
Actually, the food consisted of three choices: A Chicken and duck platter, Roast Pig knee (which my wife had), and a Vegetarian Platter. All were done in medieval style and were served with huge great hunks of bread that diners could tear apart with their hands.
Next was the ‘Dvur’ Restaurant, which served Czech classics. As with all restaurants she visited, the beer was cheaper than soft drinks.
This was a Beef Goulash. My wife said the beef was exceptionally tender and the gravy really delicious. The things on the side that look like bread are actually a type of sliced dumpling.
This is the inside of the ‘Gate Restaurant’. It served Italian and American fare, but also some Czech dishes.
Everybody shared some nicely arranged appetizers.
My wife had Steak Tartar after the appetizers. I am not terribly fond of this dish but my wife orders it frequently and says this one was very good.
Lastly, my wife and one of her colleagues were served a Pork knee that was cooked with onions and beer and served with mustard and some pickles called ‘Ram’s horns’. She said this was much better than the version at the medieval place and that the skin was beautifully crispy.
Too bad, she couldn’t have smuggled some back for me 🙂
