Best. Hot dog. In town. Located just a few steps from Letna Park (Prague 7), Mr Hot Dog offers a simple, yet varied menu ranging from Chicago Style, Classic, and Saurkraut dogs to burgers and chilli cheese fries (that's right!). The inside diner atmosphere is inviting and so are the staff. Try their homemade cocktails or grab a draught. No matter what, the prices will not disappoint and neither will the quality of the delicious meals. It really is the closest thing to tasting America!
50 - 200 CZK per person
Hanabi Sushi House
Dining on seafood in Czech can be a problem for a few reasons. The main one is geographical. When you go to a country that is far from any sea or ocean, getting fresh seafood becomes difficult, but certainly not impossible. Fear not, seafood lovers - Hanabi has got your back! Though sushi is considered a luxury food in Prague, this restaurant offers affordable prices and a fantastic Japanese cuisine experience. The concept is fusion, so you can try their amazing Korean kimchi salad and munch on some sashimi while you're at it. If you don't feel like raw food, they have a grill menu and a hot plate for meat and vegetables at the table as well. Get grilling and make a night out of it!

This place is awesome for their Thai food. Modry Zub's got a lot of choice on the menu including vegetarian-friendly options, By never compromising taste with their wide variety of dishes, this restaurant does Thai cuisine right! Pop by when you have a big appetite, because the portions are huge and the ingredients always taste fresh. There are three convenient locations near Andel, Narodni Trida and Mustek metro stations!
Recommended: a classic, their Pad Thai is probably the best in Prague!

El Barrio de Angel
Everyone knows that Argentinian steaks are the best in the whole world. Luckily, you have a place to try them in Prague! This restaurant/delicatessen offers Spanish, Argentinian, Venezuelan, Peruvian, and Bolivian specialties. The wine selection is fantastic and so is their food menu. My recommendation would be to come here for lunch since you can enjoy their specialties for a fraction of the cost! But don't worry, dinner hours will only put you back 300 - 600 CZK, still a great deal for a nice cut of meat! If you're a meat person and you enjoy a good dose of protein, this is the place to try. Your tastebuds will thank you. As a bonus, the restaurant also has a delicatessen on the first floor with Spanish jamon and fresh baked breads. El Barrio is conveniently located in Prague 5, Andel.
Regular price 300 - 600 CZK per person
Lunch Menu 120 - 200 CZK
