Good Eats in Prague: U Hrocha

You may not be a big sausage fan, but in Prague YOU WILL BE! With a side of horseradish, onions, and mustard. 
I was lucky enough to get a solid recommendation for a Prague pub from a friend who once lived in the Czech Republic. U Hrocha is a place you CANNOT MISS. I say this because I believe this place to be the true Prague experience.

There were not a lot of tourists here (I looked rather conspicuous pulling out my camera and snapping away). But it's exactly the kind of homey, small, hole-in-the-wall that every tourist wants to find.

Pass the paprika, please!

The group of men on the left were getting incredibly drunk. Of course they noticed me taking photos and asked me to come over for a shot. Never one to refuse free alcohol, I sat with these "jolly" men for 45 minutes, hearing tales of their lives and places they have lived. 

 The shot I had was the one on the far left, Becherovka, which has a sweet, herby/cinnamon-y sort of flavor. IT'S REAL GOOD! Apparently, it's the national drink of the Czech Republic.

This was one of the highlights of my trip! If you go to Prague, don't skip this little gem.

    thank for you spilling your secret with us! i love finding and hearing about little gems like this.

  4. Stories of ex-lovers and ex-wives (big surprise, they were a bunch of alcoholics, lol), Czech politics (totally over my head), and places they have lived before. One guy had lived in La Jolla, the other Brooklyn. Small world!

  5. Gotta love the jolly old men story! Oh, love your travel tales. Tell us another. Where to next? Ha.

  6. I'm sure I'll have something up my sleeve soon ;)

  7. This looks so awesome. I love that the men invited you over for a shot and then you just chatted with them for awhile. Makes for a great story and also makes me want to travel some more!

  8. Yum, that sausage looks good! Love the story of you having a shot with the locals :) xx

  9. haha you're so friendly hanging out with those locals :) I can only imagine the interesting stories they shared- they look like a lively bunch!
