    Well - the restaurant in the Pilsner-Urquell brewery is pretty good but, it is real touristy. I'm afraid the only other place I ate there was Mickey D's (sorry). :roll:

    Glenn, you ate at McDonald's while in CR? :?: How dare you miss out on all that good food for yucky ol'e Mickey D's. Their fast food is even tremendous!

    believe me I eat at plenty of local places in CR - really enjoy them.
    McD's wasn't my idea but, let me just say in their defense, they were much better than the ones here locally.
    My travelling companion is much more of a "tourist" than I am - baseball cap, blue jeans, short cut jackets, white sneakers, has to have lots of ice in drinks, and likes McD's.
    Oh well -
    I'll be back in Prague next week and can assure you I will get my share of local cuisine (you can tell from my picture that I don't miss many meals).

    Anu, unfortunately you're going too late in the season to enjoy the best part of cafes -- sitting outside. If you want restuarants here are my suggestions. Czech food: in the center, Plsenski Basta (and if you get homesick, order the Buffalo Wings, excellent) and near Bory park, Svejk but the waitresses are rude. Be are that most meat is overcooked and tough by North American standards. Spanish food: El Cid (outdoor seating with flame heaters, great cocktails, super waitstaff. and on the park). For fun, conversation, live music, and wierd Mexican-American food in a "genuine" Irish pub, Zack's. And for Chinese downtown, there is a 2nd floor restuarant at the main tram stop at Sady P; can't remember the name} and the Shanghai up near Bory. Both of these are true Chinese, not run by Vietnamese; unfortunately, the restuarants run by the Vietnamese don't serve Vietmamese food, but it's still good. Most of the Chinese and Vietnamese speak pretty darn good English. Unlike the Soviet communists who made everybody learn Russian, the Asian communists were/are much more forward-thinking and taught English in the school. They are thriving and the Russians are not. --oh, sorry about the tangent. Just meander around the Center and you'll find something good and fun. Enjoy!
