Ah Prague, with its pretty architecture, its glorious Vltava river, its streets and history and nights.. definitely a great city to visit if you’re in Europe. While the food scene offered some interesting finds and tastes including some really good duck, sausages, and soups, how were the pistachios in Kafka’s city? Let’s find out !

In a pretty touristy market in the center of the city, we found a nuts stand that seemed to have a varied choice of delicious nuts. The stand called Andalous was in the corner of the market next to some other stands offering sausages, raclette (melted gooey cheese goodness), and sandwiches.

The pistachios of course immediately caught our eye,  and this stand offered two (natural and salted). The little market stand included many other tasty treats including bbq and chili almonds and cashews, lavender nuts, hazelnuts and corn.

The first time we passed through this market, we decided to go for the salted pistachios (of course) and the bbq almonds and some lavender almonds which also  quite good !

The pistachios were big, round and full with a generous dose of salt crystals sticking to the shell which were mostly open !

Pistachios & almonds in Prague

These bountiful pistachios were crunchy, salty, and basically really good. I didn’t right much notes on them because I was walking around and eating them but these were simply great.  The bbq almonds were also really nice.

We give the pistachios 4.2/5.
