Around the World in 80 Dishes - 25 Svíčková in Prague

25. Svíčková in Prague

U Veverky

Svíčková, or marinated beef sirloin, is one of the most popular Czech dishes. The marinade, which also acts as the base for the creamy gravy that smothers this dish, is a mixture of savory stock, vegetables, and spices like allspice, thyme and black pepper. The final dish is traditionally served with bread dumplings and even cranberry sauce. Big portions rule the roost at U Veverky and you won’t be upset by the prices either. Order a large Czech beer with your meal and you’ll feel right at home with the locals. Enjoy Prague the right way at U Veverky.
