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.....

    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.

    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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
