    Didn't see any fried cheese anywhere!? :x

    The hotdogs in the squares were quite nice, cheap and well placed, although I have to say I went to a Pizzaria near the Trade Fair Palace and it was better than anything i've had in my two trips to Italy.

    Although the bohemian meals were very good! :D

    I'd go for the duck anyday,

    you eat sauerkraut more than the germans!
    i voted for gulyas. i like sauerkraut prepared in the alsatian manner, with carrots, bacon and vermout.

    I think we Czechs eat more cabbage than sauerkraut, however, both are delicious, especially the Moravian cabbage or home-made sauerkraut with Těšínská apples or with horseradish and dill!

    And only now I noticed that in the poll items vepřo-knedlo-zelo and pečená kachna s knedlíkem a zelím, "zelo" or "zelí" is translated as sauerkraut, which is not correct. It is cabbage; sauerkraut is usually served with smoked meat and potato dumplings.

    I cannot believe you forgot to put smažený sýr on the list! (and nothing is better than that with krokety and tatar sauce!) :eek:

    And by the way, the fresh cabbage you get in your obloha, if you're lucky, is as Jana pointed out, is indeed very different from the German Sauerkraut (and much more tasty).

    Hmm, I grew up having vepřo-knedlo-zelo with sauerkraut and nothing but sauerkraut. Cabbage is basically never used in my (Moravian) family.

    I think Jana meant cooked cabbage used as a příloha, not obloha.

    My favorite is duck. Potato dumplings. Plum dumplings and one kolac for desert. Two dark beers and one becherovka.
