Suckling Pig in Prague

It was 2nd June 2011, my first day in Prague after spending more than 24 hours flying and transferring between aircraft. After visiting Prague Castle in the evening to capture photos of the golden hour, I was already starving. Remember that the sun sets at 9 p.m. during summer in Prague.

On my way to the subway station, I spotted a cozy restaurant serving small portion of suckling pig. Since suckling pig is considered a must-have dish in Czech Republic, I decided to gobble up some for my first proper meal in Prague.

There were not many dinners around because it was already past 9 p.m. when I walked in. That made my visit here even more worthwhile since I could have more space for myself.

After I have put down my order, I was served with a variety of bread. I picked only two types that I like and save most of the stomach space for my main course.

I was also given some preserved olives and cream to go with the bread. I love the cream! It went very well with the bread.

When I was just about to ask for more bread to go with that excellent cream, my main course was served. It was a huge serving size! Luckily it was in time for me to stop getting more bread.

The suckling pig was excellent. I was given a mixture of various parts of the pig, i.e., ribs, belly and neck. The crackling skin was a great treat to the mouth! The meat part was marinated to perfection. The potato crisps that came with it is worth a mention as well. It was so crispy that I wanted to gobble all up but I was too full to do it.

Although this meal was not cheap, but it was well worth the experience and an indulgence for the palate.
