Explore some of Prague’s local neighborhoods while hearing some of its history and mystery with Eating Prague Tours. Walking along cobblestone streets and exploring the intricacies of the Czech culture and people, you will enjoy the depth of their wonderful cuisine that most people miss out on. Feel like one of the locals, meet vendors behind the scenes, and see the rare mixture of Old Town and New Town charm.
Discover the city through its cuisine
Most people don’t have a lot of knowledge about Czech cuisine. It’s a city of intrigue, mystery, and is waiting to be discovered. Enjoy a 4-hour walking food tour of this magnificent city while tasting plenty of authentic food from incredible local shops. Get a real understanding of why Prague is famous for its open-faced sandwiches and sample some Czech desserts. Soak up some serious history in a café dating back to the early 20th century that has played host to dozens of famous historical figures. You will also discover the residences of world famous musicians, visit the upside-down horse and view the unique works of the country’s greatest contemporary artist.
The meeting place for the tour is a store run by two sisters-in-law, that is single-handedly reviving Prague’s gingerbread tradition, where you will taste their delicious regional cookies. Their authentic gingerbread is made with nothing more than honey, butter, nuts, and peppery spices that make them so delicious.
For the love of food
Taste Prague’s freshest and finest all natural meat products in the city. You’ll get to visit a butcher’s shop that serves the best quality meat from Czech farms — aged “Fleckveih” beef, juicy Přeštice pork and sausages. The glass covered butcher’s shop and bistro can grill or heat up anything for you. From the counter, you can watch Old World techniques at work.
Next on the tour is the best tasting soup in the world, which you’ll be able to savour while gazing out large Gothic windows at Prague’s historic skyline. The restaurant you’ll be having this soup in is situated at the very top of a mystery-veiled tower. Sit among the uncovered wooden beams, oak floors, original walls, stone boulders, exceptional ironworks, and Bell of St. Maria, cast in 1518, dominating the remarkable interior space.
“Svíčková” (pronounced sveech-covah), is known as one of the most traditional of Czech dishes and is the next thing you’ll try on the tour. It is mouth-watering and was my favorite dish that I had while on this tour. It is a creamy vegetable sauce with bread dumplings, beef sirloin and topped with cranberry preserves and whipped cream!
Discover one of the hottest new entrants to the Prague food scene, Sisters, and their incredible open-faced sandwiches. It is a tribute to Czech traditional fast food.
For the sweet-tooth
Dine in Cafe Louvre, one of Prague’s top cafés, which was opened in 1902. Karel Capek, Franz Kafka, Albert Einstein, and many famous actors and writers would come here on a regular basis. Here you will try some of Prague’s best loved desserts and find out why the Czechs claim it as their traditional dessert.
Sample local beer
The Czech Republic is also known for its local beer. “Prague is one of the greatest cities in the world for beer lovers,” said Evan Rail, a long-term resident of Prague and regular contributor to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Beer Advocate magazine, among other publications. Local beer is available in every restaurant, pub, and bar in Prague.
