When exploring Prague, it’s easy to forget about lunch or cut it down to a quick snack, so that you can spend as much time as possible exploring. McDonalds, KFC and Subway have a presence in Prague, and you can find numerous pizza joints in the centre, and Wenceslas Square has plenty of hot dog stands. But if you don’t like the international chains and would rather avoid the Wenceslas square outlets (which are overpriced and offer poor quality food), don’t worry, as plenty of good alternatives exist.
