So to be honest I had no expectation of savouring any extraordinary meal when I reached Prague. But it took me less than a day to fall in love with the local food. The way some locals & restaurants are trying to revive pre-war culture & bring back the lost recipes to table is extraordinary. I am going to give you a small glimpse of it in this Prague Eating Out Guide.

Use this for your weekend of gluttony! Let me tell you the 12 things you need to try in Amsterdam in this ‘Hungry in Amsterdam’ guide.
