Prague loves Vietnamese food, do you?
In Czech Republic and Prague, we have one special. A large vietnamese community. Almost in every smaller city you can find little grocery shops called “večerka” that open early and close late at night and where you can find basically the daily base of groceries that you need. Beside that, we have loads of places where you can eat pure vietnamese food for just few crowns and it’s healthy and quick and you can try something different every day. For those who are searching for a truly good ones, we are bringing few tips where to go first:
Sapa is a largest vietnamese market in Prague. It takes a while to get there, as it is situated at Prague 4 – Libuš, but it’s definitely worth a trip. Inside of it not only you find plenty of proper vietnamese restaurants and street bistros, you can also do an asian grocery shopping in a big shopping mall with all the fresh vegetables, coriander, coconut milks, curry pastes and fish sauces you could even think of. We highly recommend you to get lost in narrow streets of this market, it might inspire you to book your flight to the real Sapa. 🙂
Same style, less authentic, but closer to the city. In Prague 7, Holešovice, there is a spectacular market place with plenty of cheap fashion (fake names of brands which might sound familiar but they are actually not :)), small bistros with Phó bó, Bumbonambo or noodles of any kind, but also trashy supermarkets or a show where you can buy “everything for 10 CZK.” In the middle of the market place, there is a restaurant Tráng An which used to be a bistro, too, but nowadays is full of customers at any daily time.
People say, they serve the best udon noodles in Prague here. No bookings, so you usually have to risk it, but your tastebuds will definitely appreciate.
Few tips from us, but you can go on with more. Each of you might find your own favourite pho bó spot in your neighbourhood. Vietnamese food is always very rich in portion, healthy, low fat, and full of taste. There’s a heart of a Vietnamese inhabitant in each of them.
