Eating in Prague: From Traditional Meats to Modern Eats

Eating in Prague is a delight. Though the Czech Republic is known for eats hearty, meat-heavy past, Prague boasts a diverse eating scene with plenty of carnivorous and vegetarian options alike. Between half liters of pilsner, check out the options below for some grub.

Naše maso

If there’s one and only one place to consider when eating in Prague, this is it. This place is a dedicated butcher shop, but they will also prepare any cut of meat you want in any way you want. Additionally, all the meat used comes from local farms in the CZ.

Moment – Karvána & bistro

Another dedicated plant-based spot. This has a variety of options, none of which let me down. The hummus plate was particularly noteworthy. Coffee/espresso-based drinks with oat milk were delicious as well.

Forrest vegan bistro & espresso bar

Amazing food with extremely healthy portions. The menu rotates each week with a different lineup every day (with a few mainstays). Before you go check the menu online….or don’t even bother because it’ll be great regardless.


Great little find with a small but delicious menu. They usually have a pulled pork sandwich and vegan wraps. Their cinnamon roll is amazing as well.

Sandokan Vegan Bistro

Indian food joint with a cool concept. Prices are by the plate/container size, so grab a plate and fill up as much as you can.

Arepas De Lyna

Arepas in Prague? Surprising, yes. But also a great option for those on a budget.


Small storefront with a selection of fresh seafood. They cook all the seafood to order, so enjoy a nice ahi tuna steak cooked just for you.

Loving Hut

Fast-casual vegan food and natural food store in one. Their options are often Indian food. Cakes and pastries available.

Farmer’s Market at Jirák

Great outdoor market especially in the summer. A great variety of options for both vegetarians and meat lovers!

U Magistra Kelly

Tucked away in a little alley, not too far from some of the main tourist attractions. This is a great place for traditional Czech food and beer. Try the pork knuckle.
