I recently visited prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic in eastern Europe. While there, I got to try many foods within the city, like dumplings and sauerkraut.
The most popular thing that is had with almost all Czech food is potato dumplings, bread dumplings and carlsbad dumplings as a side of the dish. They’re a kind of like bread and soak up sauces like goulash. Another side dish that is had with a lot of czech food is sauerkraut. Those two foods were brought over to the Czech Republic from Germany and became Czech staples. The Czech also borrowed schnitzel. Schnitzel is fried chicken or ham patty and was brought to the Czech Republic from Austria.
The most common dish you will see on a menu in the Czech Republic is goulash. Czech Goulash is different from Hungarian Goulash. Czech Goulash has more meat and has no vegetables in it unlike Hungarian Goulash. This dish often has a side of potato dumpling like I mentioned earlier. This dish does not change very often, the only thing that might be different is the type of meat.
The main dessert I found and had when I was in Prague was apple strudel. It’s very similar to apple pie but instead it has a more flaky texture to it rather than a crumbly texture that apple pie has. Like apple pie, it’s served with vanilla ice cream a lot of the time. One thing that I noticed was that the strudel doesn’t have a gooey kind of texture around the apples like apple pie has. The apple strudel has the apple slices that are cut pretty thin and carefully stacked on top of each other.
All of these dishes I got to try when I traveled to Prague. I think the cool thing about these foods it that they all came to prague from neighbouring countries like germany and austria.
