Street Food in Prague
An Introduction: Prague street food
They say that Czechs love their food just about as much as they love their beer. But they always say a lot! And while their restaurant game has always been great, the Prague street food scene is still evolving with a mix of local and international eats on offer.
If you like to wander around while you eat, we’ve put together this guide so you can find the street grub you want.
Street Food Jam @ Cross Club
The Cross Club is one of the most popular clubs in the city. Every 2 weeks throughout the summer they host an all day street food festival to delight your appetite. Expect dozen of stands offering up a delicious array of stuff. Also there’s live music throughout the day and vibrant atmosphere as locals and tourists alike come together to enjoy the (hopefully) good summer weather.
Chimney Cake (Trdelnik)
A staple of the region the chimney cake is a spiral of delicious dough. Rolled on wooden pegs and then slowly grilled over an open fire. You can have yours dusted in sugar, cinnamon, walnut, or coconut to perfection. You’ll find plenty of stands all over the city offering this fine treat. But particularly in the Old Town as it’s a hit with tourists.
Prague 1 Farmers Market
Open every week, Monday – Friday, Prague 1 Farmers Market is a place to head to. More especially if you’re feeling peckish for some local produce. This place has a huge array of all the usual stuff. Everything from dairy produce and vegetables to baked goods galore. Eat as you go and take something back with you. That way you’ll be helping to support the local economy.
Hot Dogs in Prague
Sausage lovers out there might be happy to hear that Czechs are big fans of this quick on-the-go snack. Though Czech ones are a little different. They are served inside a French crunchy baguette rather than soft bread. As everyone and their dog hates soft food, then this is a great idea as it helps keep the condiments a little more secure.
Furthermore you’ll find stalls all over the city as well as eat-in places catering the more gourmet end of the market. One option popular with locals is EuroHotDog who serve from street stands all day long and are both good and cheap.
Fried Cheese Sandwich
Another local favorite is fried cheese. This is served in between bread or alone as desired. So head over to Wenceslas Square pretty much any time of the day to get your fill.
