food usually stands for large meals, almost drowning in sauce. It's
actually far more tasty than it sounds. Usually a lack of Zelenina [vegetables]
but plenty of meat. Influenced by many neighbouring countries you'll
find Guláš [goulash] and Hemenex [ham and eggs]. Two Czech traditional
dishes are dumplings, pork, gravy and pickled cabbage and the other
is roast duck. If this doesn't take your fancy then there are a variety
of good quality restaurants in Prague that cover anything from Chinese,
Italian, French, Thai and the list goes on. The top Prague restaurants
can hit the bill for 2000 CZK including wine and make sure you phone
ahead to make your reservation or your might be eating schnitzel for
