The Masné krámy restaurant is going to delight especially the fried schnitzels favourers this week. From Wednesday 20th March until Sunday 24th March, the restaurant’s menu is presenting another nine other types of this popular dish.
“We have decided to organise this ‘parade’ of miscellaneous schnitzels due to the fact that our customers are very fond of this type of food. Among others, our menu is going to present the king of all fried schnitzels – the original ‘Wiener schnitzel’ made from veal as well as the ‘Reversed schnitzel’ made from beef short loin’ and fried cod served with a savoury mayonnaise sauce. A schnitzel can have different variations, whether regarding the ingredients or the way of preparation,” says Luděk Hauser, the Masné krámy restaurant’s head chef. For instance, the reversed schnitzel is different from the regular one in the way of preparation. First you rub the meat with mustard, salt and pepper, then you coat it in breadcrumbs and finally with whisked eggs.
The Masné krámy restaurant is planning many special thematic gastronomic events for this year, this year’s introductions being the “Schnitzels Week” and “Farmyard specials”. The next culinary event – “The trout season opening” takes place from 16.4.until 21.4. 2013.

During his professional career, he often prepared menus for interesting personalities of the German show business. Furthermore, he also cooked for HRH Bavarian Prince Leopold and prepared a menu for the Czech ex-President Václav Havel, who visited the “Masné krámy“ restaurant in 2008.

“Masné krámy” Restaurant
The present building of “Masné krámy” probably comes from 1554. As the name suggests, its purpose used to be to sell meat. In 1953, the building was rebuilt into a pub, quickly gaining considerable popularity owing to first-class Budweiser Budvar beer as well as serving excellent food. Following the 2002 floods the pub had to be closed down and was re-opened after a five-year break on 5th December 2007. The reconstructed interior designed and supplied by Story Design a.s., follows not only the original restaurant’s tradition but also the historic character of the building. Therefore such architectural elements and traditional materials had been chosen so that they support the historic outcome (solid oak, natural leather, black mat metal and patina copper). The interior furniture is of a simple and purposeful character evoking the historic unity with the building. That is not to say that even more modern trends of restaurant facilities equipment were not used in the “Masné krámy”. For that reason LC screens and other LC projection equipment can be found in here, so can WIFI internet connection or wireless cashier equipment. The capacity of the restaurant is 200 places.
“Krausened Lager” in the “Masné krámy” restaurant
“Masné krámy”’s beer offer is dominated by Budweiser Budvar Krausened Lager, which is drawn directly from the beer tank there. Krausened Lager is only available in selected Czech restaurants. Due to its content of live yeast, the lager is very vulnerable to storing and care conditions (a temperature of 6-8 C°), which are met only by some restaurants. The initial brewing procedure of the Krausened Lager is the same as with Budweiser Budvar Premium Lager. The difference lies in the fact that a certain amount of “rings” is added into the ready-to-consume beer, supplying the beer with a new culture of brewing yeast at its best condition plus another share of the extract. Further fermentation of the beer then takes place and the live yeast gets directly to the customer, providing the resultant Krausened Lager with better sensory qualities distinct from the traditional keg lager (greater fullness of the flavour, stronger relish, firmer head etc.).
