I walked back towards old town to try and find someplace good to eat dinner. This is such a struggle for me, as I’ve mentioned before. If I had more forethought I would google the best places to eat in Prague (or where ever I am) but I’m frankly just too lazy to do that so I usually just wander and hope that I’ll find something good on my own. I finally decided on this place called Zlaty Hrozen. The atmosphere looked nice, the prices were reasonable and they had the gulas and dumplings featured on the menu (which was what I wanted to try) so it was a done deal. In Czech it is called “Hovezi gulas s karlovarskym knedlikem.” This meal definitely made the top 5 of favourite meals so far. The beef gulas was saucy and flavourful, and the dumplings? Well, I didn’t really know what to expect. I thought they’d be smaller balls of dough cooked right in the gravy, but no. They were thick slices of what looked like bread, but was kind of like stuffing in slice able bread form. I’ve now learned what it is that made those bread dumplings so incredibly delicious…lard! I was wondering what the substance was that was holding the bread bits together, and there you have it! Lard! Oh, why is the most fattening stuff the most tasty? This meal was probably the closest thing I’ve had to home cooking since I’ve been gone. It was such incredible comfort food. And anyone that knows me knows how much I love stuffing, so this was just a perfect meal! Top it off with a home- made brownie with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. I am one happy woman.
