Žižkov is more famous for its pubs than its restaurants, but there are new places springing up every year to add to the stalwarts that have been around for ages. As well as the restaurants, it's worth checking out Pivovarský Klub, a drinking venue that serves good traditional pub grub.

In the last few years Karlín's restaurant scene has really taken off, with some of the city's best new restaurants and cafes. And don't miss the neighbourhood's weekly farmers market for a more laid-back alternative to Nové Město's Náplavka.
