Influenced by the Czech cuisine, the Slovak follows the dietary customs of the Northern countries. In their dishes you will find thick sauces and garnishes with onions and baked vegetables, while their glasses are always filled with beer*. The first thing that is put on the table of the locals (even before utensils) is a warm soup. Then follow the main dishes that are based on roasted (and not baked) meat.
In the beautiful city of Bratislava there are mainly quaint taverns, which serve tasty and quality dishes in low prices. The cost for a full meal ranges between 15 and 25€ per person with beer. If you are looking for fast food, the city has limited choices that are mainly based on sausages, burgers and langos. Avoid the restaurants that display their menus outside with photographs of the dishes. 90% of them are tourist traps. Do not leave the city without having tried the famous Haluski, the Kapustnica soup, the fried Zemiakové placky, the local Bryndza cheese and our beloved Skalicky Trdelnik dessert. Also, taste the traditional beers, many of which will leave you totally satisfied.
*Slovaks import beers from the Czech Republic, but also produce dozens of their own brews.
