So another fucking "friend" decides to finally visit you in Prague. After doing the mandatory Prague Castle + Malastrana + Charles Bridge walk, you are both hungry enough to eat the ass out of a dead skunk. But there are no skunks here and, what's worse, all the restaurants you pass are too expensive for your "i'm-not-really-an-adult-yet" budget. Tormented by hunger and indecision, you settle on slices of dirty slizz (pizza) on the sullied sidewalk instead of showing your friend genuine Czech cuisine.

This was me a year ago. Until I was introduced to the Sedm Konselu restaurant on Žatecká street, near Starometske square. With the Coca-cola marquee, it doesn't look like much. And it's not really, which is maybe why it's good. It's just a place where you can get a solid meal (lunch or dinner) for under 100 crowns.

Food

  • Goulash, Dumplings – 84kc
  • Roast Duck, Cabbage & Dumplings – 98kc
  • Svickova, Dumplings – 84kc

These prices for lunch or dinner rival restaurants you'd find in the countryside. Here are some crappy photos of the menu if you want to get a better idea:

I wanted the roast duck but it was all sold out. That was okay I guess because I heard duck is the hardest meat for humans to digest. Got the farm plate instead for 128kr (more expensive– true). Pictured below.

Service

They are not friendly (Czech style) but they do their jobs. The main waiter speaks English.

Beer

Here is the beer menu. 0,5 litre Staropramen  = 33kc. An average price. Good for the city center.

Closing Words

Follow your dreams. Even the wet ones.
