Where to go in Pilsen to find food from every corner of the world?
Of course, when it comes to Czech food we’ve got more than enough options. Yet, we all sometimes crave something a bit more exotic, the kind of food you can’t just make at home. Are you interested in trying some Asian or Mexican specialties? Do you prefer Indian cuisine or are looking to find some Greek delicacies? Here you can choose from our list of Pilsen’s foreign-food restaurants.
Got your mind set on Asian cuisine?
Do you love Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai or Japanese food? If so, you definitely won’t go hungry while visiting Pilsen’s city centre. You’ll immediately find two Asian restaurants on Americká Street, both of which are worth a visit. The first of them, The Golden Dragon (Zlatý drak), offers tons of different Asian meals. We would recommend the sushi. You’ll find the restaurant Mely near the “Thank you, America!” monument (Památník Díky, Ameriko!), and it’s here that you can choose between their daily specials and ordinary menu. Try meals such as Bun Bo Nam Bo and Pad Thai, they’re absolutely worth it.
If you’re a sushi-lover, then you’ll have a hard time even choosing what to eat first at Zeke Sushi, found in the Smetonovy sady park area near the Great Theatre. Or you can visit Hômy Asian Fusion on Bezručova Street, which will take your breath away with its interior and infinite selection of Asian delicacies, including everything from a hundred different kinds of ramen and noodles to excellent sushi.
