Prague: 3 Tips

Ahh Prague… 

There is certainly no need for me to wax on about how stunning the city is – from the Charles bridge, to Prague Castle, and every nook and cranny in between, you won’t regret a trip there.
Here are my 3 Tips – none actually have anything to do with ‘touristing’, but they are oh so good.

Tip 1: Drink at Hemingway’s 

Where do I even begin… I could start with my love for cocktails – but this is a blog, not a novel. They make incredibly creative, and crazy delicious cocktails, like my new favourite: The Mezcal Sour. I should add that I thought I hated Mezcal. Apparently I don’t.

I topped the night off with….hmm frankly, I have no idea what this drink was called. But it came in a teacup!?! Enough said. I was sold. It also happened to taste divine.

We may, or may not have made reservations for the next night on the way out of the bar….
On that note: don’t forget to make a reservation, they only allow seated patrons, so don’t take the risk

Tip 2: Eat at Guga

We stumbled into the place without knowing what it was and were delighted by its cosy ambiance. Having never tasted (or frankly, thought to taste) Georgian food, we thought – why not?
And boy were we pleasantly surprised!
To be honest, I don’t even remember what we ordered – and truth be told, I gobbled it up without taking any pictures (I’m not doing such a good food blogger job here eh?).
Lucky for you, this place is right next to Hemingway’s so I’d recommend having a bite here before imbibing in the cocktail deliciousness next door.

Tip 3: La Degustation

This might not be the best tip for someone travelling on a budget – but oh my goodness was this one of the most incredible meals I’ve ever had.
La Degustation is one of, I believe two Michelin starred restaurants in Prague. They created a magical meal and I managed to actually take some pictures (I really need to work on this food blogger thing).
The dish that made me realise that I apparently don’t hate squash or zucchini

Divine beef…

Unfortunately, I gobbled up the amuse bouche and appetisers – and dessert before I thought to take pictures. Oops.
I paired my meal with wine – but, in a nice twist for those who don’t want to drink, they offer a fruit juice pairing as well.
Yummm… writing this blog just made me hungry.
