Street food in Prague


That black animal looks like a wild boar to me.  We assume that the sausages were made from wild boar meat and pork. Sides will include bread and saukraut.  Seems sausages are a favourite take-away food in Prague.  Or you can have them then and there as you can see that the couple on the left are enjoying them. Lots of porky dish around here in Prague.  


This piglet was wrapped up in foil in the day (maybe marinated).  At night it was being roasted on a rotisserie.


More pork being roasted and sold here.... day market in the Old Town big square.



Trdelnik comes from trdlo, the wooden stake the cake is wrapped around for roasting which gives it its traditional hollow shape.  It is a flaky dessert rolled in nuts, cinnamon or other flavours, roasted over an open fire. It's crispy and caramelised on the outside, inside its soft and fluffy  with a bit of a smoky flavour.

This pretty lass is making Prague wafers and selling them at 1 Euro each.  Wafers are among the traditional 
Czech specialties which dates back to 1856 and Prague has its own original wafers called Prague wafers.
The Prague wafer is just two thin sheets of wafer held together with a mixture of hazelnuts, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar.  One can buy them fresh from street vendors, or get them from the supermarket or grocery store. 








I'll squeeze in pictures of  these two shops which were just opposite this wafer stall.








We stumbled upon this while walking around Old Town Square.  This Absinthe is 70% alcohol, certainly not for us!

I  do hope that you've enjoyed your tour of Prague with me as your 'guide', till then.....

  2. The street foods look quite interesting. Are those sausages made from wild boar?
    Would love to try the waffles!

    1. I really don't know. But my children bought some to try but they didn't quite like it. I'd prefer the Trdelnik. The wafer is super thin, like biting into air and can't really taste the nutty filling. You can get them commercially packed from the supermarkets.

  5. Dear Cheah,

    I have been told Prague is a beautiful city but didn't realise there is a vibrant street food scene as well. That suckling pig looks awesome.
