📍Vegan-ing In… Prague, Czech Republic 🇨🇿

“Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures.”

Some random internet person

I agree entirely. Which is why, to celebrate another year of Ludz, I put together a little train based trip. We’d fly to Prague from London, spend a day in the Czech capital then catch the night train sleeper to Kraków.

Of course I’d be squeezing in as much dirty vegan food as humanly possible. 💁

Post Prague arrival the incredibly sweary, but lovely all the the same, taxi driver dropped us off at our apartment. After a day of intense travel we’d earned some edible delights so headed off for our first taste of the junk.

CHUTNEJ FAST FOOD

📍 Voroněžská 564/19, 101 00 Praha 10-Vinohrady, Czechia

I liked the vibe of this place as soon as I walked through the door. It was pretty chilled. Seemed to be where the cool kids of Prague do their refuelling. Part of me worried that I might order the wrong thing from the menu and end up with a tattoo. I was hungry so took the risk.

The burgers looked pretty immense so I was all about that. The Czeko-Brko was recommended to me – A burger made from Czech grown herbs with sojanaise, lollo lettuce, bell pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, vegan cheese, ketchup, caramelised onions, and mixed sprouts.

Admittedly, I was skeptical about a herb based burger, especially considering the fact that we’d passed a concerning amount of weed shops on the way – but I didn’t worry for long. Top dogg, bite em all, gonna eat shit up. He was a hefty sir! The patty was herbilicious, chock full of the usual garnishy suspects and smothered in all of the right sauces.

Ludz ordered the Chilli Mexico Pizza – Tomato base, tomatoes, vegan soft cheese, peppers, pickled peppers, green beans, corn, chilli, herbs

It’s probably one of the best vegan cheese pizzas I’ve tasted so far. The toppings were super fresh, and complimented by just the right amount of vegan cheese, you know that shit can be too much when you go crazy with it. Dough was on form.

We also ordered a couple of cones of Vegetable Chips – made from Potatoes, carrots and parsnip.

Call me unadventurous, but the standard potato chips were the ones for me. I guess the carrot and parsnip brought some health to the party.
A little trek from the touristy bustle but a total ‘must go’ if you’re in Prague.

LA BOHEME CAFE

📍 Sázavská 2031/32, 120 00 Praha 2-Vinohrady, Czechia

Day two. Early rise as a day of adventure awaits. But first… a hot cup of survival juice. A total beaut of a cafe aesthetically. Bagged myself a cheeky soya latte to go. No vegan food that I could see but I was in it for the coffee and the coffee was bang on. 👌

MOMENT CAFE 

📍 Slezská 62, 120 00 Praha 2, Czechia

Another hidden little gem off the tourist path.  A cosy cafe beside a tree lined park. The leaves were all the colours of autumn making for a romantic little stroll.

I saw an epic tower of bad ass sandwiches on the counter and couldn’t resist this Tempeh behemoth – Homemade bread with tempeh, carrot, beetroot, romaine, soyannaise

Just look at the damn size of it! Had to do a mouth muscle warm up just to get my chops around it. Again, nice and fresh. The bread was dreams. It was my first bite of tempeh too which was wild.

Ludz went for the Seitan and Cheese Bagel – Marinated seitan, vegan cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickled cucumber, spicy ‘soyannaise’.

Unknown-8

I was jealous. Instant food envy. Thankfully when you love someone you’re contractually obliged to share. The seitan was amazing. It had ‘burnt end’ style crunchy edges yet was super succulent on the inside. The ‘soyannaise’ gave it a creamy texture and a zingy little kick.

The menu was pretty extensive and offered sweet treats too. Killer brunch spot.

We spent a few hours getting ourselves into all manner of trouble around the city. With the final hour looming, we foraged for a train picnic at The Loving Hut store and headed for our sleeper carriage.

Crazy to think that tomorrow we’d be waking up in a different country with a whole new hit list of eats to demolish.
Next stop… Kraków.
