Review - Prague (CLOSED)

Alex Harmon also got along to Prague, an old favourite of mine in Kings Cross. Her tasty review makes me want to renew the friendship myself...

There’s nothing like Czech food on a gloomy winter’s night to push the buttons on your new winter clothes. I was seduced by the Devil's Toast ($9.90); crunchy fried bread topped with spicy mince and melted cheese.

Marinated Prawns ($11.90), in a rich creamy sauce, were delicious but responsible for my garlic odour the next day. The Stuffed Mushrooms ($11.90) were pieces of heaven oozing blue cheese.

An orgy of meat arrives in the Traditional Bohemian Party Dish ($25.90): 
smoked pork, roast pork, roasted young duck, sausage served with red cabbage, and sauerkraut with bread and potato dumplings.

The Roast Pork Knuckle ($25.90) is the size of my head and, on a breadboard with a knife stuck in it, looks rather medieval. In fact I was feeling very Henry the VIII as I pondered the dessert menu whilst still enjoying a main of Marinated Beef ‘Svickova’ ($22) a traditional Czech recipe that combines a root vegetable sauce bread dumplings and a dollop of cranberry sauce and cream. The meat is thinly sliced and the sweetness of the sauce makes it a dainty meal to prelude dessert.

Finally a Czech mulled wine, Svařák ($7.90), helped settle the feast from within. I left buttons bursting – full and fulfilled.
