Eating in Prague: 5 Places for a Great Meal

Time to hit you with some more food photos (sorry, not sorry). After two full days in London, my family and I headed to Prague, Czech Republic for the next leg of our trip. I had studied abroad in the city three years prior and was every bit as excited to show my family around.

Eating in London: 6 Places to Check Out

After three years apart, I finally traveled back to Europe for a two-week multi-country vacation. I’m still experiencing the post-vacation blues and figured the best way to cope was to share everything I ate, drank, and saw in each of the countries.

One of my favorite things to do when traveling is to experience the local cuisine. London’s food options didn’t disappoint, so I thought it best to kick off my vacation recap with details of what I indulged in. Enjoy!

1. The Green Man – Fitzrovia

After 10 hours of travel, this was a chain pub that was a convenient 5-minute walk from our flat. Although I prefer to avoid chain restaurants when traveling, the fish & chips I ordered was just what I needed after a long flight.

Tip: Food and drink must be ordered at the bar.

Food (top): Chicken and Smoked Bacon Club
Price: £7.75 (~$9.50)

Food (bottom): Fish & Chips (ale-battered cod with triple-cooked chips)
Price £12.25 (~$15)
