Lokál, Prague, 9/17 & 18/15

A really long shaped restaurant that is divided into smoking and non-smoking rooms, it offers casual and friendly service and atmosphere. Food here is not fancy but homestyle with slight variations in the offerings.  They have beer served with different amounts of foam from tanks that is cold and goes down easily.  The staff was helpful in ordering on our first visit and extremely friendly. It was nice enough that we returned for a second visit during our trip and that’s about the best endorsement there is!

The sausages were juicy and slightly different flavors. The goulash was difficult to eat as we were given a fork but it was reasonably well done however the pork was outstanding. It was called “juicy” pieces and while I wouldn’t call the bits juicy I would call them tender and very savory. The dumplings were heavy but a nice accompaniment and the spinach was not overcooked and did have a good taste.

The second trip we tried the fried cheese with homemade tartar sauce, which was a starred specialty. I would have preferred it to be slightly more cooked where the cheese was runny rather than a tasteless wedge of moist goo. The chicken schnitzel was a Saturday special and it was moist and lightly breaded. We got it with potato salad which ran circles around the buttered potatoes we had with the cheese.  Finally we tried the caramel glazed profiterole which was good and not as overly sweet as the waiter warned us he found it to be. Unlike the cheese it merited being one of the starred items. It was one large iced bun filled with luscious vanilla custard and caramel ice cream.
