Pivovarsky Dum . Prague
Yes we are still writing need to start writing our trip reports from Munich and the Czech Republic. I’m sure my seven regular readers are disappointed at not seeing a ton of great pictures from my snazzy drop down menus above. But it’s easier to post bits and fragments from various places we visited as I have time.
Among them? Prague’s Pivovarsky Dum Restaurant and Pub. After arriving in Prague tired from a day of traveling, as well as an unexpected train change, (a reason to check back for that story,) we arrived Prague’s main station and took the metro to Miss Sophie’s Hotel in Prague 2.
I had been looking forward to eating a hearty Czech meal and sample some beer. The girl at the front desk told us to walk a few blocks toward the river to the Pivovarsky Dum. We were seated family style, meaning you and your chair share a large table with other diners. Everyone there was in a great mood, and a boisterous Dominoes game was in progress a few tables away.
I had read about Czech food before I left, which is basically summed up by meat meat and more meat. I eat healthy at home, but love indulging in some more fattening plates now and then. Plus when you’re traveling you’re usually walking most of the day, so it’s well justified. Check out part of their dinner menu: It’s typical of most restaurants in the region. The prices are in Czech Crowns, and the two prices represent the two portion sizes.
