Trying something new

While I have never been to Europe trying the food was the thing I was most excited for. I was even more excited because I had no idea what kind of traditional foods Czech Republic had to offer.

Czech Republic was ones apart and heavily influenced by Austria and Hungary, so one of their most common traditional foods is Goulash. Goulash is a type of stew that contains a mix of meat and vegetables that seasoned with a variety of spices, a little Czech spin is that they add bread dumplings. The best way for me to describe bread dumplings they are like sponge bread. Goulash originates from Hungary which is why our lovely tour guide for half of our trip mentioned that Hungarian goulash tastes better.

During my time in Brno I visited a very traditional restaurant that was not too far from the square. They have goulash served with bread dumplings and I’ve never had any kind of goulash in my life so I had to try. I did not regret it. It was beef goulash and had a thick consistency that went great with the bread dumplings.
