The meat of turkey, chicken, lamb, rabbit, as well as fish, is often used in traditional dishes. In Czech restaurants and local kitchens, you can find such dishes as roast duck and stuffed goose. Stewed pork goes to goulash, a spicy rich soup with onions particularly popular in wintertime. The most common garnishes to the main dishes are potatoes, rice, whipped cream, sliced dumplings made from potato or millet flour. Dumplings are generally well-liked here. They are prepared from yeast and flour with the addition of sugar, eggs and salt, and boiled in salted water for 20 minutes. Fried cheese is also widespread. Special tasty cheese popular in the Czech Republic is called “Hermelín” - it is white on the outside and very soft inside.
Apart from goulash, Czechs love onion and garlic soups. Salads are typically seasoned with lots of sauce or mayonnaise. Shopska salad is made from diced vegetables: tomatoes, green, yellow and red peppers, cucumber and onions covered in Feta cheese. All ingredients are mixed, sometimes with olive oil. Cucumber salad with sour cream, salt, sweet pepper, sweet onions, vinegar, and garlic is quite popular. Cucumbers are left in a colander with garlic and salt for half an hour, then the vegetables are manually squeezed out as much as possible. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Brno When dining at a Czech restaurant, keep in mind that bread standing on the table or served with a soup is rarely free. You'll most likely have to pay for each slice. Sauces and garnishes are normally paid separately. In cafes and restaurants, Czechs often share tables with strangers - sitting down next to someone is normal when there are no free places. After the meal, it wouldn't be superfluous to compliment the chef. It is customary to leave a tip in the amount of 10-15% of the bill. Tips shouldn't be left on the table but given directly to the waiter along with the total amount, informing him/her about it.
