… are just what I’m looking for.
PRAGUE, Czech Republic- Readers of this site sometimes bust my balls about my food selection criteria:
I don’t give a crap for sampling every dainty little fancy bit of food that a country has to offer. Unless some friendly local force feds me, I generally have no idea about the culinary traditions of any given country. I eat for two reasons: calories and nutrition. I pick my food in accordance to its weight / nutrition vs. price ratio. I’m the consummate anti-foodie: I eat variations of the same thing everywhere. I live on coffee, booze, and capsaicin. Anything else I have little interest in.
However, these lunches in the Czech Republic really check my boxes. I’m under the impression that this country only has one meal: meat with potatoes / bread covered in slop. I love it. For five bucks in a pub at lunchtime I can pack my gut with calories and protein and have a pint of beer.
And get warm. It’s cold here. In this weather all you really want to eat is meat and potatoes / bread covered in slop anyway.
