Trip Report Smoked porky Knee (“veprevo koleno”.)

Many walks tales about Prague national dishes such as baked “veprevo knee”. For the first time, arrived in the Czech capital, we tried a traditional dish in a small bar Chron. We ordered two, because, having read about the portions in Prague's bars, decided that one would be enough. The waiter took the order, went to the kitchen, she came back and said that in the presence of only one knuckle proved that they can apply this minute. Agreeing to one serving, we were languishing in anticipation of the internal, cozy patio bar, destroying the first glass of beer. The long wait was not necessary culinary masterpiece, and when we brought our one serving of baked knee, we realized how lucky we were that we did not order two servings. One portion of the shank is enough not just to eat, and eat two of them! The Czechs do not skimp on portions, to sauces and nice additions to the knee, such as potatoes and cabbage. At least, such a tradition in the bar "for the" - have Chron.
The size of one portion particularly in the bar reasonable, meals are served on a large plate, which holds 80% knuckle, and 20% - an appetizer and sauces. Meat content (we all know that saturated fat pork leg) is 60-70%, which in my opinion makes it so much better fed than than the European knuckle, where the percentage of edible meat is barely 40%.
Council
I would like to give a little advice to those who go to Prague for the first time and wants to enjoy this famous dish. Make a first portion for two, if you brought a small portion will be one, just order one more serving, because in most cases, the knee Prague beer fills the stomach quickly. Be sure to ask for fresh bread in Prague, he gives the flavor by eating veprshove knee.
