Štrúdl z Taženého Těsta

Jeseniova 29, Žižkov


Off-the-beaten-track is an understatement for this gem. Walk through a sea of nondescript paneláky (communist-era public housing), and you will literally stumble upon this hole-in-the-wall. Out of which comes the best strudel in town—maybe even better than your mom’s (assuming you have a mother who bakes mouth-wateringly good traditional Czech strudels). This fabulous and very focused enterprise sells only three items: apple strudel (jablečný), cheese strudel (tvarohový), and poppy seed strudel (makový)—all baked fresh daily onsite. I encourage you to try all three, but poppyseed is definitely my personal favorite. Each strudel is about 12 inches in length, and the final step of powdered sugar dusting will be executed while you wait. (Tip: Take a taxi and have it wait.) Cash only.
