With limited time in a place known for good food, one likes to spend mealtimes in places one trusts. So, we returned to U Šuteru (five minutes from Václávske Námesty), after some eight years or so, to find everything just as we remembered it - a cosy pub-like ground floor restaurant which is part of a small hotel, with hearty portions of well prepared typical Czeck dishes. We decided to try our favorite dishes, but then return another day to taste those which attracted us on the menu, but were unfamiliar.
So, the first evening we had chicken breast filet with peach, ham and cheese, breaded hermelin cheese (Czech version of Camembert) and a typical Czech dish called svičková na smetaně (beef sirloin in a creamy sauce), all accompanied with salads, fries or dumplings and some dips or sauces. For dessert we had excellent honey cake. The only glitch was (and U Šuteru is not alone in this) that they switched from real whipped cream to the horrid bottled version. None of the dishes cost more than 100 crowns.
Two days later we returned, had some other dishes from the menu and were just as pleased, but somehow we started missing our favorites after a few days, so on our last evening, we decided to return to U Šuteru one more time, but it got a bit late (after a show), and since we arrived just before the kitchen closed, the breaded hermelin was a bit pale (cook obviously wanted to go home), but still very nice.
U Šuteru proved once more to be the place you can keep coming back to and although we tried many pubs and restaurants in Prague, this is where we feel most at home. Hoping they return to real whipped cream, but forgiving if they don't, we will return to them the minute we're in Prague again.
