Are you planning on visiting Colorado sometime soon? Why don’t you make a little side trip to Georgetown, a cute little town just outside of Denver? It is a hometown to famous Cafe Prague, a Czech restaurant that serves anything from a hotdog to Svickova (Beef roast in a special Czech creamy sauce) and Palacinky (Crepes – Czech style). The owner Martin Stribal says that his food is being sought after not only by the local Czechs such as famous hockey players such as Milan Hejduk, Martin Skoula, and Radim Vrbata or famous Czech American Madeleine Albright but also by the local bears (they periodically eat out of their trash bins)! Mr. Stribal says that even though the restaurant stays busy, Czech kitchen unfortunately won’t make them millionaires. Well the truth is that as good as our cooking cuisine is, it is still mostly a peasant style food, so one can’t expect to make a bank on it as some French and Italian restaurants do with their food. “Czech kitchen” and “Fine Dining” just don’t go together – and I am quite alright with it because there is nothing better than a slice of fresh baked Czech bread (Sumava…hmmmm) dipped into a bowl of Zelnacka (Sourkraut soup).
CZ: Planujete navstivit Kolorado? A proc si neudelate objizdku do Georgetown, roztomileho mestecka na okraji Denveru? Zde sidli mistni ceska restaurace Cafe Praha. Serviruji tu jak hotdogy, tak Svickovou, Vepro-knedo-zelo a ceske palacinky. Manazer Martin Stribal konstatuje, ze jeho kuchyne je zadouci nejen pro Cechy z okoli jako jsou slavne hokejove hvezdy Milan Hejduk, Martin Skoula a Radim Vrbata, ale take tu velmi chutna Cecho-Americance Madeleine Albrightove a pry i mistnim medvedum (pravidelne vyziraji odpadky)!
Pan Stribal ale tvrdi, ze i kdyz maji v restauraci dosti naprano, tak ze z nich pry milionari nebudou. Pravdou je, ze i kdyz nase vareni chutna nejlepe na svete, kralovska kuchyne to neni. Francozske nebo Italske restaurace holt vydelavaji vic, protoze na jejich jidlenim listku najdete “pochoutky” jako sneky v pesto omacce, krevety, chobotnicky, apod. My jsme proste “meat-n-poatoes” narod a ja jsem s tim velmi spokojena. Co je lepsiho nez cersvy krajic Sumavy a talir horke Zelnacky???
