5 tempting deli shops in Prague
The place to shop for various Greek products, such as olives (oil), yoghurt, seafood, halloumi cheese, honey, wine and Retsina wine. Their motto ‘Taste Greece’ is matched by the food on offer and the friendliness of the staff.
One of the biggest delis in town (it has two other branches), offering a fine selection of cured hams and meats (from Italy, France, Spain or the Balkans), cheese and antipasti. They also sell traditional Czech products, including wines. Very helpful sales assistants.
3) Tesori d'Abruzzo
Nowhere else in Prague will you find such a large concentration of truffle specialities per square metre. In this tiny store Chiara Gregoraci sells organic products from her native Abruzzo region, ranging from pasta to cheeses and aperitif goodies, which all contain ‘the black diamond’. She will gladly recommend a wine to pair with your purchase.
4) Zlatý kříž
This place looks rather outdated, with its tired-looking sales assistants and faded photos on the walls. The oldest delicatessen in Prague offers more than 50 types of chlebíček and is packed every day. Their mayonnaise celeriac salad is legendary, but they charge by weight so feel free to try others, too. Eat-in or take-away.
This deli bistro opened to promote the culinary products used in two upmarket restaurants that are part of the same group. Here you can enjoy wine, cheeses, sausages and oils that are sourced from small and medium-sized European producers at take-away prices. Try the smoked paprika, which makes an amazing addition to all Spanish recipes.
