In January 2018 we traveled to Loket in the Czech Republic. During winter and especially a few days after Three Kings, restaurants and shops in these little towns are mainly closed for business and only open over weekends. The weather was not in our favor that specific day and as we walked around this beautiful castle, we saw a fireplace being lit in a restaurant a few meters away from us. We looked at each other and our feet automatically walked that way… probably knew that we needed coffee. Oh, by the way, we are coffee addicts and snobs. Got there, and the fresh, warm smell of Czech Cuisine started tangling our taste buds. For those of you that know us, will know that our favorite country is the Czech Republic. Not only for the breathtaking nature and scenery but also for their food.
Got hold of a waiter, that obviously could not understand why these two South Africans are strolling around a winter ghost town. She gave us the menu and in broken English said: “chicken balls special today”. We did not think twice. Ordered the Chicken Balls (which was served with Czech bramboraky – potato pancakes) and the rest is history… here is my take on the chicken balls.
