Chicken with Red Cabbage and Czech Dumplings

 
Prague is one place to go for foodies. It’s known for great cuisine as the presence of food tours can attest. But it isn’t good news for somebody turning vegetarian like me. It’s considered a sacrilege to be a vegetarian in this part of the world.

A popular dish that I tried was the chicken with red cabbage and Czech dumplings. Sorry, a pocket camera and poor lighting conditions inside the restaurant couldn’t give the justice it deseved. It went well with beer which is the favorite drink among the locals.

Besides the food, it’s a delight to roam the streets of this wonderful city. Spared from the bombs of World War II, the best of European architecture are well-represented. Standing next to each other, you’d find Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Socialist Realism, and others too numerous to mention.

Prague seemed to have been built without a plan. I found the streets and alleys to be very confusing. It was like walking through a maze. Understandingly, I always got lost on my way back to the hotel. I didn’t mind it, though, as it usually led me to discover something priceless like a Communist-era cafeteria where the locals dine.

Czech Roast Pork Dish

Czech Roast Pork Dish

 
On the way to Poland, we stopped by and stayed in the Czech town of Pustevny located in the Beskydy mountains. It was here that we hiked along the trail leading to the top of the Radhošt mountain 3,700 feet above sea level. It was a difficult climb.

While we were on our way up, it started to rain hard making the rocks slippery. On the summit, amidst thunder and lightning, we found the statue of the pagan god Radegast as well as a chapel and sculptures of Saints Cyril and Methodius. However, we didn’t see the beautiful view as we had expected because of the fog.

At dinner time, we were so tired and hungry that we could eat anything in sight. As fate would have it, we were served the traditional roast pork dish complete with potatoes and other goodies. As we were dining, local folks dressed in their native costumes entertained us with their music and dance. It was a night that I’d remember for a long time.
