Respond to Review of Country Life - Vodickova
Review: When touring with punk band The Damned the general rule is to avoid your colleagues at all costs until closer to showtime. With all that traveling we live on top of each other pretty much so a little break now can work wonders. This may go somewhere towards explaining how we have survived for 31 years on the road without too many incidents of fisticuffs to account for. Anyway, here I was at Country Life's self service counter choosing some pretty delicious looking wholesome food together when I spy our bassist Stu West already ensconced in the restaurant and tucking into an enormous plate of veggie nosh. Well.... great minds think alike and all that - and the occasional portion of healthy food on the road is not to be sniffed at so all was good. So, what would I add to the comments here about Country Life in Prague? Well.... like a lot of Euro veggie gaffs there is a tenancy towards pretend meat products..... Seitan and the like - which although it has a decent taste and pleasant chewy texture would not be the sort of thing I cook at home. The UK has been ahead of the game veggie wise by a few years on the rest of the continent so we have got past the 'it has to look like meat' stage to a certain extent. However, for an unpretentious self service pay by weight of food cafe right in the centre of a still lovely city (if you manage to avoid all the UK stag and hen parties) then Country Life is pretty bloomin' good if you ask me. I recommend this one highly playmates.

Anyway, the number of veg restaurants I see on Happy Cows map of Prague convinces me otherwise.
