More Czech food
This restaurant was just a block or so away from our hotel, the Amarilis Jerome on Stepanska. We passed by it on Friday night on our way to U Pinkasu and heard the live music and crowd singing along and thought it looked like a fun place, in retrospect we should have stopped here instead of heading to the tourist trap that we ended up at. On Friday night the restaurant was very busy, on Saturday night there was a really large group of young people, both men and women all dressed in white, some had cowboy hats with a skull and crossbones. Sunday morning we saw a few people dressed in all white wandering the streets, apparently still up from the night before, I guess I'll never know why. I know it sounds a little weird but pork knee appears on most Czech menus and is something you should try. I had been thinking about ordering it all week and this was our last night in Prague so we ordered one to split between the two of us, the waitress said it should be plenty. Pork knee is served with grated horseradish and mustard, it sometimes comes out of the kitchen on a spit, ours was in a roasting pan. It was pretty substantial and very tasty.
