For the past two years, the people behind Prague's Street Food Festivals have been working hard to create a very convincing impression that Prague actually has a street food scene, or street food for that matter. They’re at it again this year. And we love it.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may have noticed that the Street Food Festival was one of our last year’s favorite events, and it really only started last year. We liked the first installment so much that we drove to Brno for the Moravian version and got stuck on the highway, watching Instagrams from the event comments like “Hurry up!”, “The last fifty”, “You’re missing out if you’re not here” and so on. Oh well. First world problems.
And the people behind the Street Food Festival are not stopping there. From July 19 until September 13, they will be organizing the Street Food Jam, a biweekly street food festival in front of the Cross Club, the original venue of the event, in an attempt to create what we hope will later become a regular street food event similar to Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, NY, Maltby Street Market in London, or the Street Food Thursday in Berlin, for example.
