Prague has no shortage of restaurants. They are tucked away in winding streets that make up the maze of Stare Mesto, the Old Town. You can find them along Wenceslas Square in Nove Mesto, the New Town. Few tourists hop on a tram or walk or all the way to Mala Strana or lesser quarter, across the Vltava River. It is in the Mala Strana quarter that you will find exquisite, simple and authentic restaurants.
Czech cuisine is famous for large portions of meat. Duck is also considered a true delicacy. One of the best eateries to sample Duck a la Czech is Restaurant U Modre Kacknicky. Be seduced by their duck in slivovice, a potent eau de vie from Moravia. The poledni menu, or lunch menu at a fixed price, is the best kept secret in town. Tourists are not automatically given this list. Simply ask for it and you will be surprised at the prices. Ferdinanda is one of these typical lunch time restaurants that has always interesting dishes featuring on the lunch menu. If it is just coffee and pastry you are craving, Curakavalimonada is the best place to sample fluffy merengue, crispy outside and gooey inside.
Here are ten eateries in the Mala Strana district that will tickle your taste buds and make your trip to Prague one to remember.
