When you imagine fast food it probably wouldn’t be anything nice. Pasta Krusta is different. It’s fast food, but very well done.
Pasta Krusta has a huge advantage because it is located in the very center of Prague, just a few steps from Václavské náměstí. But the main advantage lies in the fact that they simply do things properly.
Although it is really in the center the prices are not very high and the pasta is just delicious. Moreover you don’t really feel like you’re in fast food spot, actually the only connection with fast food is that the meal is prepared in a few minutes. By few minutes I mean you wait near the counter while watching your pasta being prepared.
The interior is very wisely solved, the kitchen and place where you order is downstairs and tables with herbs and olive oil on it are upstairs and are always clean.
I always choose one of the simplest pastas – Zucchini e pancetta and it is always wonderful. You can choose which kind of homemade pasta you want and what sauce you’d like on it though.
It’s not only about pasta, usually in their daily menu you’ll find some risotto, soup or other Italian specialities. And if you feel like it, you can buy one of the ingredients there and make your own pasta at home.
Funny fact is that Pasta Krusta is just a few meters from McDonald’s, but when I’m near Václavské náměstí I always choose Pasta Krusta.
