Street food is rare in Prague, even almost non-existent. Office workers like sit-down meals for lunch. As there are many good, inexpensive restaurants in the city, this is where most people go. The best street food is seasonal and sold at the Easter and Christmas markets. Langose is a real treat, a kind of fried pizza with lots of tomato sauce and grated cheese on top. Be careful! because it is quite filling. You should certainly try trdelnik. It is a soft yeast dough wrapped around a cylinder and then baked. You eat it dusted with cinnamon and sugar. Another treat is chlebicky. They are open sandwiches topped with cheese, ham, egg, salami and gherkins. Most famous of all are the sausage stands which you will find along Wenceslas Square, although not as many as a few years ago. The municipality has closed down many of them because they obstructed the way and in preparation for a major regeneration project. However, no one knows when this will begin. Try this culinary delicacy at least once during your Prague trip. They are very similar to German bratwurst and always served with a dollop of mustard and a heap of sauerkraut. The long skinny Frankfurters are less exotic but equally tasty.
