Empanadas for dogs? Argentinian bistro experiments

When one door closes, another opens. At least, that seems to be the case in Prague 6’s Dejvice district. Just as one establishment in the neighbourhood closed down – the legendary A Maze in Tchaiovna, a quirky meeting point that fused British pub food and beer with the concept of the traditional Bohemian-style teahouse – another opened practically right next-door: the second branch of La Paisanita, an Argentinian empanada eatery with a majority meatless menu.

Previously, La Paisanita could only be found in one fairly well-hidden location – the basement of the Prague 3 town hall – and you had to be in the know to find it as there was no sign for the bistro outside the premises. Although this added a certain eccentric charm to the place, Diego, one half of the husband-wife duo behind the eatery, says that they are happy to now be in a more visible location.
