Prague Dispatch – 10/11/11

We took the train to the town of Kutna Hora today to visit the Sedlec Ossuary, a.k.a., the bone church. You should read all about the Ossuary here; it’s fascinating. Rather than being morbid, it was life-affirming and beautiful.

Then we wandered around the cobblestones in moody weather and ate one of my favorite meals of my life at the Restaurace Dacicky. Be sure to check out the menu; it’s a carnivore’s paradise. Here’s my plate of roast duck, red cabbage, and dumplings. The dumplings were made with diced bacon. I might also have enjoyed some locally-brewed Dacicky Lager.

Tomorrow, penance at CrossFit Praha.

    Hey looks like a good time,I am stationed about 3 hours away in Germany, and looking to go there in two weeks. Good to know there are some paleo friendly places.

      If you can be a little disciplined, you can get close to eating paleo-friendly. Most pubs and restaurants have roast pork, pig knee/leg, and sausages. The hard part is resisting the beer and dumplings. But there is easy access to awesome meat… and we found some really good chopped salads… just bell peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes with oil-based dressing.

      We picked up the Prague Post Restaurant Guide at a bookstore in Wenceslas Square. It has trustworthy reviews of restaurants all over the city, so you can find Thai, Asian, and Mediterranean, if you need a vegetable fix. We also buy cukes in the grocery store and eat them as a snack to get more veg.
