Honestly, no idea how to start. It has been really long time, my last blog post was published more than 1 year ago and I don't want to promise anything like "I'm back, I'll write more often and blabla" because I really don't know. What I know so far is that I really would like to start to review  restaurants where I have been, from the closest one next to my house to the farthest one.
For some of them I'll not have personal pics simply because I would write about places where I have been in the past or because sometimes I'm so hungry and I can't wait to bite the food. Some of my pics can be found in my Instagram profile and normally I take my pics from there to publish here as I can't wait to share it on IG.

This is exactly what happened last Monday in Prague when we decided to try Vegan's Prague which is Nerudova 36, Prague. The location is amazing and easy to find, not so far from the city center and well served by public transportation; I suggest to leave the car at home as I didn't see any parking place around. The only drawback is that it's on the second (or maybe third? Not sure) floor and I'm not sure if there is a lift so it can be hard to reach for people with disabilities .
The environment is nice, clean and good smelly (no smells of fried food or similar which for me it's important because I definitely hate when my hair smells like french potatoes); as you can see from the picture in their website, there are 2 floors: the second one is simply amazing with the view to the Prague's castle and the typical Prague's rooftops. We didn't make the reservation but we just had to wait some minutes to have our 4 seats table and luckily it was next to the children's place so my son had the space to play and we to rest and enjoy. Anyway I recommend to reserve in advance especially during lunch and dinner time: we were lucky to find free place just because we have been there at 2.30 pm.

Just like the majority of Czech restaurants (probably in other Countries it's the same, but personally I've never checked) is it possible to find the complete menu in the website, available in English too and the content is very clear, tidy and understandable; not so many dishes which is a very good choice for me: better to have less choice but prepared with care and precision.
This is was we ordered

For starter we had Avocado Tartar. Simple and amazing, the taste is similar to Guacamole but it's more creamy and delicious, served with home made fresh bread.
For the main meal my initial idea was to try one of the burgers, then I thought that I usually eat burgers in Brno as we have some of  junk vegan restaurants here (I'll talk about this topic in another blog-post because there's a lot to dive deep on this common phenomenon) then I decided to try the real Czech cuisine by ordering a delicious Tradicni Bramborovy Goulash (Traditional potatoes goulash) and my hubbie got the Staroceska Veganska hostina (Old bohemian vegan feast).

My goulash was very good, a little bit heavy for my taste but for a normal stomach (=with still gallbladder on it!) really tasty and rich. Served with home made bread which I decided to dive in completely, wait a couple of minutes to absorb the goodness and then enjoy. It's not visible from the pics but it's a lot of goulash, the plate is the one for pasta (or soup) and it's all filled in. I wasn't able to finish it, but my hubbie wasn't sad for that.
His dish was very particular, not heavy at all but anyway rich of taste; I tried all he had, a combination of different wheat each one seasoned differently and I really liked it.

But the best of best was the cake. I'm not really raw enthusiastic, I like raw cakes but sometimes they are too heavy and taste too much oily. But this one... omg... this one was pure heaven.
We took one caramel and peanut raw cake in 2 and I couldn't stop eating it although I was already full by the goulash. The best raw cake I've tried, really.

I forgot to mention the drinks: my hubbie took a beer and I got malinova domaci limonada (home made lemonade with raspberry); nothing to say about the beer as we are in Czech republic and we have the best beer in the world, but the lemonade was perfect: not too sugary, with fresh raspberry. Perfect.

The waiter and the waitress were very nice and available, kind and patience and they contributed to create that nice environment which, combined with the good food and drinks, give you the certainty to come back.
The prices are visible in the menu and considering the high quality of the food and drinks, the friendly service, the portions and the location I would say they're cheap.

I will difenetly come back in my next visit in Prague, meanwhile if you had or will have he chance to stop in there, please leave a comment and let me know your experience as I love to read others people opinion!

Below my personal opinion with marks from 0 to 5. Let me say that 5 it's very hard to achieve especially with food parameters as I'm really demanding.
