Goblin Abroad - Prague

Prague - famous for goulash, snitznel, dumplings and beer halls. The ideal destination for stag parties, but not necessary coeliacs.

But who needs a beer hall when there is a 100% gluten free restaurant around the corner.

Na Zlaté křižovatce is a little way out of the centre of Prague, but really easy to get to on the subway - just head to Florenc and it's around the corner.

The four owners each have a coeliac in their family and as a result have learnt to adapt traditional Czech food to be gluten free. Here is the beef goulash I polished off for lunch...

We also had gluten free bread to start, and as if the choice of dumplings, schnitzels and strudels wasn't enough, I also had a draft gluten free beer.
Here I am tucking into an aptly named Celia beer...

We did actually go to the oldest beer hall in Prague called Flecku which dates back to 1499. There isn't bar, just a man in little shorts holding a tray of beers who makes his way around the beer hall. I politely declined a very dark beer from the man in shorts, and was possibly the first person to do so in about 500 years!
