Prague is one of those cities that when you arrive you realize it’s better than the pictures. This medieval city had me in awe for the 2 days I was there. Every corner, every building, and every cafe was better than the last. I just couldn’t get enough of Prague and wanted to stay longer (what’s new?). Prague is an architecture, culture, and food lovers paradise, with the last part being what I, a foodie, got to experience most of.
During my time in Prague I got to try another Airbnb experience, this time a foodie tour. You may remember my first Airbnb experience from the beginning of my trip in Barcelona. That one was a photography tour, which I loved, but this time I wanted to have an experience that catered to my other love – food. Prague’s foodie scene is a foodie paradise. Czech cuisine is very comforting, and Prague has so many great cafes and restaurants to try!
Since I only had 2 days in the city, I thought the best way to try a little bit of everything of Prague’s foodie scene would be to do a foodie tour. I booked this tour through Airbnb experiences which consisted of 4 hours of food tasting along with a small city tour when walking from one restaurant to another.
During the tour I got to try out 3 different types of restaurants. These were a mixture of some of the city’s best local spots and even fine dining. We started off the tour by trying some Czech fast food at Zlaty Kriz. Here they offer a variety of open-faced sandwiches with the most traditional one being potato salad. It’s the one I tried and it was delicious!
Our second stop was for beer and meat – 2 things Czech cuisine is known for and what make up a big part of Prague’s foodie scene. We went to a popular local taverna to try some traditional Czech beer – Pilsner Urquell. It is always served at 4 degrees Celsius, aka extra cold! They also served us a variety of meats which you ate around a table standing. It was a very cool and local experience.
For the last stop on the tour we walked out of the city center and over to Prague 7 to a fine-dining restaurant. Here we had a degustation menu so we got to try a little bit of everything; and everything was delicious! This was my favorite part of the tour!
This tour gave me a good overall look at Prague’s foodie scene. The “Eat through Prague” tour was led by Adam, a Prague foodie himself, who is also very knowledgeable about the city. Apart from getting to try Czech cuisine, I also learned a lot about Prague and the foodie scene through this tour and felt like I was talking with a friend the whole time. That is the best part about Airbnb experiences, that they are led by locals who are welcoming and make you feel at home. I highly recommend you try it!
