Prague’s sizable community of Vietnamese immigrants during the Communist era provided some of the city’s earliest introductions to international cuisine. This long-standing, hole-in-the-wall at the base Jiřího z Poděbrad square has drawn a large following of residents from all backgrounds for decades. Visitors come seeking quick, affordable street food and pho, often eaten on the park benches across the street. Don’t be dissuaded by a line out the door – these efficient fast food pros know how to turn and burn at impressive speed. Have your order and your payment ready to avoid evil eyes from those waiting in line behind you.
Time Out tip: Vegetarian options are scarce to non-existent, and pescatarians should take note that the shrimp fresh rolls contain an unlisted sprinkling of bacon.
