10 Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Prague where the Food is so Tasty that also Meat-lovers like to Eat Here

Being a vegetarian in Prague is not as impossible as you might think when you see the meat-filled menus. Almost all restaurants offer at least a couple of vegetarian dishes from smazeny syr, fried cheese, to sopsky salad, Greek salad. If you find yourself in an all meat restaurant, and there are many of these in Pague, simply order two or three side dishes. You will find a staggering number of potato dishes and some vegetables like broccoli, mixed vegetables and fried cauliflower. The good news is that finding a vegetarian restaurant in Prague is becoming less of a headache these days.
