Ooh it's toooo hard to choose. In my favourite pubs/ restaurants I would probably be going between vepřo-knedlo-zelo and kachna knedlíkem a zeli... but my boyfriends grandmothers make amazing svickova (Sp.?) On the vote I've gone for the duck.. since I'm no good at making it at home. Can make an OK attempt at a beef goulash, though.

I'll have an order of that beef goulash. My grandmother made that.
Ta a pár rohlíků a to mi stací. Budu v sedmé nebi.

I have to say, that I still like the food from the various...eateries...on Wenscelslas Square in Prague. I know they aren't reflective of Czech food, but they were great after lots of beer!!

Fried cheese. In a bun. Lol.

I think that's something quite different from the Czech version, which is either an Edam-type cheese, or the Czech version of Camembert called Hermelin, dipped in flour, egg and breadcrumbs before being fried, so the cheese melts inside the breadcrumb coating and when you cut it, it all oozes out!

Is that anything like fried Mozerella Chese that is served in the US?

Maybe you are right there, Polednikova.
I guess I don't really know the czech version of fried cheese, but I'm sure it is very good.
The greek fried cheese comes on a hot skillet and in the form of a square patty. Opa!

A Czech friend showed me her czech breakfast, an egg in a whole cut out in the middle of a slice of bread. But then sliced bread isn't big in Czech republic is it? Isn't it more the crusted 'brotchen' kind of bread.
Big difference between american bread and european breads.
So I guess her version was an americanized version.

Don't know. I don't have breakfast with many Czechs. Smile But they do have sliced bread. They choose their big brown loaf, put it whole in the big slicing machine that most supermarkets have, press a button and it slices it for you!

And you could quite easily make the fried cheese at home if you wanted to try it. The secret is not to have the fat too hot so that the breadcrumb casing doesn't split. I always coat it twice ie flour, egg, breadcrumbs, egg, breadcrumbs.
