One of the highlights of my long weekend in Prague was the super sweet goodness that was the Czech delicacy of Trdelnik. I’m pretty fussy with meat and I wasn’t going near the pork knuckle any time soon pal, so these treats were my little slice of Prague foodie life. And boy were they delicious.
So what these little contraptions I hear you exclaim?
Well they are like churros but in lovely spirals, all sugary and cinnamon-y. And they can be filled with a variety of tasty things. You know, like chocolate or ice cream or your heart’s desires. The best things.
Even Josh snuck a bite when I wasn’t looking, the scamp.
Seeing as they’re sold all over the city, they also make fab midnight snacks if you’ve been out for dinner or had a few beers. Like getting a hotdog in New York of a slice of pizza in London’s Leicester Square, they taste ever better when you’re a bit boozy. But wait, is that all food?
But anyway not all Trdelnik were created equal. Sure they’re all yummy, but I always make it my mission to find the very best once I find something I like. Like the best gelato ever in Spain or the best coffee shops in Reykjavik. I’m like a foodie detective, guys.
So I think I’ve scoured out the best Trdelnik in Prague and it’s from a lovely little shop near Prague Castle, called MLS Bistro’s Creperie U Katejana. Despite already eating a few Trdelniks from the Old Town in Prague, which were lovely, I was drawn to this place because of the queue. When you see a queue somewhere and there are lots of similar shops down the road without a queue, you know it must be good.
Well it bloody was.
These bad boys were freshly made and were all soft and light inside. And they had a great selection of fillings from strawberries and whipped cream to raspberries and vanilla ice-cream. Or you could have a thick spread of something delicious inside, like caramel or Nutella.
I went Nutella obvs and it was a dream.
So if you’re in Prague, go, run! Go and get a slice of heaven from this beaut shop, it’s worth the steep hill you have to climb from the Charles Bridge, and hey, you’ve already worked off the calories. Go, you.
