U Modré Kachniky – Prague – Czech republic Visit Review: 16.4

Between Kafka and Dedalus

It’s a blue house close to the Vltava, the river that runs through Prague, and that you all know by its German name: the Moldau.

 

Our Czech friends, fond of Kafka, first gave the same name to their two restaurants, dislocating them only by their address. Even the presentation on the website is confusing. The original, the one I tested, is in Nebovdska and the other in Michalska, more in the center. It is slightly more upscale in dishes and menu suggestions while the second has a slightly wider choice in vegetarian dishes.

The executive chef is the same. But if he has a face, he has no name! Indeed, even though he has worked for the kings of Sweden and Norway and many celebrity people, he does not wish to develop his personal fame. A beautiful lesson of humility for many.

Finally, our landlords have actually acquired a block of houses that they linked together. This forms a labyrinthine space all the more delirious as the decoration oscillates between an Austro-Hungarian baroque, a Viennese nineteenth century, a mezzanine of intertwined colored paintings and a multitude of objects, photos and paintings. Nevertheless, an elegant harmony detaches itself.

Having been able to browse all the rooms (I think!), I advise you either the very first room or one of the last two, after a few doors and many steps. The tables are rectangular and spacious. We are not here to squeeze the client, he must feel comfortable.

If I had to invent a term to name the kitchen, I would call it elegant-rustic. Our chef having made beautiful classes, he found us the way to lighten the famous knedliky, these incredible quenelles of potatoes. Beware of it like a plague! In many tourist restaurants, they are a cheap piece that will make you feel full without having eaten well.

Then, if I tell you that the name of the restaurant means “blue duck”, you will immediately feel a strong inclination for hunting. And it is true that deer fillet, saddle or deer hock, feathered game and any hair, duck form the bulk of the map.

As you can see in the photos, we are on a cooking with sauce! I adore!

And an ApfelStrudel for the end.

Very nice wine list giving a good place to local wines.

 

If your knowledge is limited (as much as mine) in Moravian or Bohemian wines, let yourself be carried away by the wise advice of the sommelier.

Check of 200 euros for 2.
