Our last day in Prague and a sumptuous dinner at Kotleta




 On our last stay in Prague we took a walk to the New Town as we had to look for a very modern building in Prague.  We passed by this  Matylda Boat Hotel, in fact two hotels, anchored alongside the Vltava river.  The newer  Boat Hotel is the Klotylda.





The Dancing House is one of the most interesting Prague buildings built at the end of the 20th Century. It represents a man and a woman, named 'Fred and Ginger' dancing together.  It was awarded the Design of the year 1996 award from the American Time magazine.  This extraordinary building is at the corner of Jirasek Square and Rasin Quay alongside the river Vltava.  The Celeste Restaurant and Bar, formerly La Perle de Prague, is a French restaurant housed on the top two floors of the building.



We were looking for a place to relax our weary feet and the reviews from Tripadviser convinced us to give this restaurant a try.  All of us weren't disappointed.  Good, clean ambience and very friendly service.





We ordered Staropramen Beer and some citrus drinks.


Goulash and dumplings


Chicken Schnitzel with pureed potatoes.


Spare ribs


Gee.... the best pork knuckle that we've ever eaten and we just love the presentation.


The bill came to 1201 CZK which is about Rm 195 excluding tips.


This restaurant is highly recommended should you ever decide to visit  Prague
and thanks for following me on this journey!

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.
