Cuisine Czech cuisine is quite heavy and calorific but very tasty. Czechs eat a lot of meat dishes (beef, pork, veal, duck goose, chicken and game) potatoes (knedliky, škubánky, bramboráki) and soups. The most popular soup is garlic (Česneková polévka), onion (Cibulová polévka) and tripe soup (Dršťková polévka). Among the meat dishes we mention sirloin in cream sauce (Svíčková) stew (Gulas), pork chop (Vepřový Řízek). The Czech Republic is a paradise for beer lovers. It is believed that the Czech beer is one of the best in the world. The most famous brands are Pilsner, Kozel, Budweiser, Staropramen. if you’re a fan of “thrill” I recommend Absinthe.
