Where The Locals Eat in Prague

La Degustation Boheme Bourgeoise is a favourite with locals for a special occasion or celebration. It’s one of three Michelin-starred restaurants in Prague and serves traditional Czech food with a twist. The menu’s inspired by an old cookbook that dates back to 1894. They’ve used it to create adventurous six or 11 course tasting menus that use some of the best local produce. You can also try tipples from small winemakers and breweries from around the country.

Maso a Kobliha is another place where the ingredients are the star of the show. This gastropub was set up by an English butcher who creates delicious bar snacks to go with Czech beers. As you’d expect the menu features lots of meat, which comes from local organic farms. You’ll find things like Scotch eggs, sausages and fried pork skin on the menu. For dessert you can gorge on vanilla custard doughnuts or salted caramel tarts, all made in a local bakery. The same owner also runs the popular Sansho Vietnamese restaurant that’s nearby.

Prague’s locals love to try flavours from all around the world. Las Adelitas is one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in the city. They have three branches which serve up authentic Mexican dishes like enchiladas, tacos and burritos, as well as a great mango margarita.

SaSaZu is another popular international eatery. As you go inside the building it feels like you could be in Asia. It’s decorated in deep red and there are giant lanterns hanging from the ceiling. On the menu you’ll find a mix of dishes from Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and beyond. There are things like beef rendang, tamarind duck and Singapore lamb. It’s street food with a fusion twist, and you order a selection of the small dishes and share them.
