After three years of success with the vegetarian and vegan restaurant Etnosvět in Prague’s Vinohrady, a new restaurant has opened in Karlín emphasising healthy food, a stylish environment, and friendly service.
Food connects us is the motto of Spojka Karlín. This new restaurant based in a modern office building, Praga Studios, offers international cuisine that seeks to create new flavours to satisfy vegans, vegetarians, and also meat lovers.
The main idea revolves around Flexitarianism, an increasingly popular plant-based diet that claims to improve your health with an eating regime that’s mostly vegetarian yet still allows an occasional organic meat dish.
Spojka Karlín aims to connect people with food by joining those who want to eat well and at the same time be able to enjoy a meal all in one table, without prejudice. The restaurant transmits its strong philosophy not only on the plate but also with their interior, decorated with dozens of plants that hang and stand.
The restaurant is open at 8 a.m from Monday to Friday and at 9 a.m Saturday and Sunday, offering a breakfast menu with specialities such as sorghum pancakes or porridge with coconut milk and almond butter. You can enjoy breakfast until 11:30 a.m., and at the weekend from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
You can also taste an excellent lunch menu between 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. and the a la carte menu from 5 p.m. till 10:30 p.m., which adjusts according to the season.
If you have no preference or special diet, you’ll find on the menu a large variety of dishes such as cauliflower gnocchi with forest mushrooms, spinach, and parmesan or a delicious chicken curry with coconut cream, broccoli, purple potatoes, coriander, lemongrass, and lavash.
Health is essential for them, and at the same time, they want the food on the plate to make sense, not using any industrially processed food or refined sugar. The priority is to emphasise quality and overall access to fresh ingredients, always clean and when possible, locally sourced. Vegetables and herbs come from their garden, and meat is organic or from certified free-range suppliers. Fresh homemade pastries and desserts without sugar or gluten are also available.
Make friends with food, at Spojka Karvlín there is freedom of choice.
