Pork, pork, and so much more
Anthony Bourdain has a No Reservations Prague episode worth checking out, with plates overflowing with vepřo, knedlo, zelo (that's pork, dumplings and sauerkraut—the most authentic Czech meal). But vegetarians, fear not. A lot has changed since he shot this episode a few years ago. The center has become dotted with health food bio-markets and raw food restaurants and I've survived as a happy pescatarian here for many years. Lehka Hlava is a vegetarian paradise in the city center that satiates even my most carnivorous comrades.
Any beer geek worth her hops knows that the Czech Republic is the birthplace of the original Pilsner. When we first arrived years ago, it seemed that there were only 2-3 (albeit phenomenal) choices of beer. Now you can hardly swing a pork knee without hitting a pub carrying some of the finest microbrews in the world. We'd attempt to list them all there, but then we'd rob you of the experience of locating and securing your own personal fave. (We pride ourselves on being uber-helpful, but the beer must be earned.)
Never to neglect wine lovers, Moravian wine (from the southern region of the Czech Republic) can hold its own and there are plenty of vinárny (wine bars) in town. Vinograf is a personal favorite.
