So last night’s dinner restaurant was Koliba Czech and Slovak Restaurant in Collingwood. It was really quiet, with only us and two other tables occupied, but I presume that’s usual for a Sunday night. In a very eastern european fashion a lot of the food came with potato and cabbage (which I just love!), and they were very well sized meals – I even had some leftovers for lunch today.
We started with potato pancakes with a marinated cabbage:
These were deliciously crispy, and the vinegar in the cabbage was a great contrast to the potato. Then it was onto mains, I had kransky sausages with potato and more cabbage, and my friend had a beef goulash. Both were very tasty, although massive in size. (Only my kranksy’s shown below, the goulash photo didn’t turn out too well)
And for dessert we went for the cinnamon crepe with homemade strawberry jam – it was absolutely to die for, definitely could have had one each.
All in all it was a good dinner – quite heavy on the carbs, but very tasty. Also learnt a bit of trivia – we asked the waitress for a bottle of water for the table and she said that apparently in Czech they find it very rude to have water on the table, and will ask you to remove it if it’s on the table – we did shun tradition and go with the water though, I needed something to wash down all the potato!
