The Best Prague Christmas Market Foods
Ahh, tastes like the homeland! Niech Żyje Polska!! Ok, I definitely had to Google that, but it means Long Live Poland. Latkes are also referred to as potato pancakes and I grew up on these delicious patties. My great grandmother used to make them and I can’t seem to get the recipe just right, but clearly the Czech have it down pat!
I am not a big meat eater, but man I cannot pass up a good kielbasa. Czech Republic definitely did not disappoint and was rolling out some tasty smoked sausage off the hot fire grills in the markets. I highly recommend eating it with some brown mustard and if you’re really hungry, add a Latkes to that plate.
Whether you are Polish like me or not, no one can pass up this handmade delicacy. Consisting of dumplings, kielbasa, and sauerkraut, you cannot go wrong. I am not ashamed to tell you that I had at least one bowl of this per day.
The most delicious sugared dough you will ever eat aka Trdelnik. I highly recommend you check out my entire blog post I dedicated to them, which was only appropriate since I would have one after breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the trip.
Calling all adults (age 18 and over in Czech Republic)!!! This warm alcoholic drink consists of ½ eggnog or Advocaat and ½ brandy, topped with whipped cream. Fear not the power of the bombardino, these drinks may sound “girly,” but they pack a PUNCH. Make sure to hop on the tram to get to your next destination after one or two of these luscious drinks!
Many people also call this drink “hot honey wine,” but I like to call it “the nectar of the God’s.” It is the perfect winter drink to sip on while perusing the Christmas markets.
This mulled wine will hit your nose before it tingles your palate. The moment you step into a Christmas market, you will be whisked away by the smell of red wine, cinnamon, cloves, oranges, and nutmeg. That would be the sweet scent of hot mulled wine calling your name.
