El Toro Negro, Kafka Snob Food, Prague
Wow – it seems so long ago that we were in Prague – almost 3 months ago. Sorry it has taken me this long to post my eats in Prague. To be honest, I wasn’t utterly blown away by the food in Prague, the food was so so. Maybe it was my taste buds, or the fact that I didn’t really research it enough but nothing really wow’ed me unlike in Helsinki!
We arrived late afternoon in Prague. Dragon was still jet lagged so was pretty much asleep as soon as we checked in. We stayed at the Prague city apartments and I have to say, it was one of the nicest apartments I have stayed – it was bigger than our current place in Hong Kong! It was an old building but the inside was beautiful and we truly enjoyed our stay there.
We wandered around town, and stumbled across El Toro Negro – it was packed but thankfully they could fit us in. It is a steak bar and is located in the oldest part of Prague opposite the Old Town astronomical clock.
The menu was vast – diners have the option of choosing a wide range of meats and fish and there were over 120 cocktails on offer! I couldn’t go past the grilled tenderloin pork which was served with chips. The pork was tender and the chips was excellent!
‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the Argentinean rib-eye steak served with potatoes. The steak was cooked to perfection, medium rare and tender. Rather a small serving but we had our eyes set on desserts at the markets.
We walked around the night markets – it was beautiful and the food looked good, especially the desserts. ‘The Mother’ couldn’t resist these hot donuts and they were excellent when eaten warm, especially in the cold weather.
I couldn’t go past the crepes with nutella and banana – seriously sinful and seriously delicious!
We went to the markets at least 3 times during our stay, we just couldn’t stay away – the desserts and snacks were just too good!
The next morning, we were strolling by and found this cute little cafe – kafka snob food. The cafe was rather cute, I liked the relaxing vibe but the food was a little ordinary I thought.
The scrambled eggs were a little dry for my liking and incredibly salty!
The croissant was delicious – crunchy pastry and soft fluffy on the inside
‘The Mother’ had the muesli, the yogurt was nice and creamy but nothing special I thought.
There was fruit salad also, which was again nice but nothing special – Dragon demolished it. Service was friendly but we didn’t go back for breakfast during our trip. There were better cafe’s I thought.
