Prague Street Food Festival

Prague Street Food Festival at Cross Club

During our first weekend in Prague (Praha), we headed to Cross Club (Praha 7, Holesoviče) for a tasty street food brunch opting out of long lines (still have not encountered a line here in Praha) in quaint cafes. Our noses wanted to lead the hunt but we had to map out our stomach space with an obligatory walk pass each food stall.

Star Waffle

I couldn’t even make it past the first stall serving waffles on a stick served with your choice of strawberry or blueberry, finished off with powdered sugar. I was a mess and it was not memorable except for the sticky mess which dripped with every bite. Oh and they were called Star Waffle because their branding had a lot of Star Wars references, so I’m guessing this is a light saber waffle. I would have made sound effects while eating this if I didn’t just think of it!

Na Italské Farmé

Next up, we had some freshly made ravioli stuffed with spinach and smoked salmon. I had to stop her from adding truffle oil because I wanted to taste the fresh ingredients they used and asked for extra-virgin olive oil instead. It was the right choice because it tasted divine. A perfectly made morsel satisfying with every bite.

Beer Me

One of the best things about Praha is the beer. There are a lot of places to drink it and a lot of food to go with it! But this reusable beer cup with a clip attached to it is ingenious and needs to be adapted into festivals all around the world where multi-tasking is necessary. Don’t you agree?

Fancy Corndogs

This fancy food cart serves a salmon or shrimp corndog atop a bed of leaves and topped with chilis and coriander (cilantro). Then, squeeze the lime and take a bite. You wish you got your own! The duo behind this cart was also dressed to the nines in a bow tie and golden pineapples as a decorative element (see Beer Me photo). Beautiful and delicious!

What We Didn’t Eat

There was a lot to choose from but with every passing minute, the lines formed longer and longer. Thank the lord others came or else we would have eaten everything on site. I do regret not trying the Choco Kebab which had a cylinder of white and milk chocolate kept in a container similar to what you would see in a kebab stand, except it was probably keeping the chocolate cold.

Cross Club

When you do visit Prague (Praha), check out Cross Club with or without the festival vibes. It’s got a steampunk vibe, daily music events, a cafe and a cool multi-level beer garden. What’s there not to like?
