HOTSPOT: Zebra - Asian Noodle Bar

EN

Our first supper in Prague was Thai food. Our goal was actually Chinese food because no matter where we go, we always need to eat Asian food. Or at least my family does... But we couldn't find any decent Chinese restaurant so we end up with Zebra – Asian Noodle Bar.

Zebra cooks our food right in front of our noses in this open kitchen so the food was at least freshly made which is a huge plus! 

We had a long walk through the streets and alleys of Prague so we took our time and relaxing at Zebra’s.

So after plugging my phone charger into one of the sockets (so nice of them!), I started with a refreshing Thai green tea (recommended!) and la starters: veggie spring rolls, veggie dumplings (thumbs up for the veggie choices), duck eggrolls and fried shrimp patties on skewers. Happy face!

The starters were a great start of our supper so we were looking forward for our main: stir fried Thai rice, ‘pad Thai’ with shrimp and Thai red curry rice. The dishes were so salty and I was kind of disappointed, especially after having great starters. 

But thanks to the awesome veggie dumplings and spring rolls, I'd still recommend you guys to eat at Zebra because those were nice! And their tea of course.

Onze eerste maaltijd in Praag was Thais eten. Ons doel was eigenlijk Chinees eten, want wij als Chinezen moeten nou eenmaal altijd Aziatische eten. Of in ieder geval mijn familie. Maar we konden geen fatsoenlijk Chinees restaurant vinden dus we eindigen met Zebra – Asian Noodle Bar.

Het eten was zeker weten vers omdat al ons eten in dit open keuken klaar gemaakt werden.

We hadden een lange wandeling achter de rug door de straten en steegjes van Praag, dus we namen onze tijd bij Zebra’s. Beginnend mijn telefoon op te laden en dat vond ik super aardig van de service. Als volg de verfrissende Thaise groene thee en la starters (aanbevolen!): veggie loempia's, vegetarische dumplings, eend in loempia's en gebakken garnalen op spiesjes. De

De voorgerechten waren een geweldige start van ons avondmaal, dus we keken ernaar uit naar onze hoofdgerechten: stir fried Thaise rijst, ‘pad Thai’ met garnalen en Thaise rode curry rijst. De gerechten waren zo zoutig en zo verschillend met de voorgerechtjes. Dus ik was een beetje teleurgesteld.

Al met al is deze plek aan te raden vanwege de prijs en de goede voorgerechten. En de lekkere thee.
My first Thai green tea and what a vibrant color! I think the only difference from other green tea is that this one has a light pandan flavor in it. 


The dough is so thin and the filling were lovely - these veggie dumplings/gyoza, one of the best I ever had really. 


The interior has a nice modern Asian twist. Loving the lamps of course.

My dad and I got the same  stir fried rice dish . It was so so SO salty :c

End my meal with this nice large cup of cappuccino c:

  2. The fried spring rolls and the kway teow noodles looked amazing! It really looks quite authentic though although this place is in europe! I think I'm going to miss the homey authentic asian food here in singapore when I go overseas end of the year for study!

  13. i laughed a little there when you said no matter where you guys go, there needs to be asian food somewhere in those days. my parents are like hardcore frequent china visitors so our "holiday" doesn't feel like holiday at all; it's always a business trip because they kinda do the work stuff in china too (which i hate). so yeah, china and hong kong...both are asian so chinese food is not a doubt. (makes me so bored lol)

    but yeah, even if we're not going somewhere overseas, even if we're just going to, say, an italian restaurant who also serve some asian food (restaurants here are weird and not really specialized haha), we tend to choose the weird stuff and by that i mean foreign ones that stay true to its, uh, "origin" lol
    i think we won't eat our hometown food if we were to go to prague :P my father and i like trying out weird new menu haha and we're one of those "we go all the way to this new place and eat what we can eat in our place whuuuut" people

    the restaurants here also let us charge our gadgets to their sockets :D doesn't that happen in where you live too? though these days everyone seems to have a portable charger already.

    omg the thai green tea is so greeeen *o* it's so true to its nameeee *o* so pretty~

    the rice dish looked tasty....until you mentioned how salty it was :( that sucks, man
    the others look so good though ughhh thai food is GOLD.
