James Dean – an authentic piece of American history

James Dean is a restaurant and simultaneously a club, which is named after the actor James Dean. The restaurant specializes in American cuisine, therefore you can order meals such as burgers, steaks or sandwiches. The restaurant is situated directly in the center of Prague. The whole interior of this place is inspired by American trends of the last century. While the walls are decorated mainly with portraits and mosaics of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, the chairs were specifically made to copy the chairs of Chevrolet Bel Air from 1952. In order to give the atmosphere a more authentic vibe, the personnel wears clothes to match the interior of this place. At night, if you wish to have some fun, you can also visit the club, which can be found downstairs.

I visited this restaurant for the first time when my sister invited me there to celebrate my birthday. My first impressions were that the restaurant is spacious, the interior unorthodox however interesting and the personnel attractive in those costumes. Compared to the average prices of other restaurants, the prices here were slightly higher. On the other hand, the servings were also large. I personally recommend one of their steaks or burgers. By the way for all men out there (I don’t know if women have the same as I naturally haven’t been there), you definitely have to visit WC, you will be quite surprised however I do not wish to spoil anything so go and take a look.

Before you visit the restaurant, first take a look at the menu of James Dean.

Vietnamese cuisine, as a Southeast Asian cuisine, shares a lot of similarities with other East Asian cuisines. The most standing out signature points would be the usage of chopsticks, the variety of tastes due to the usage of herbs and seasoning and rice as a bread and butter side dish.

Vietnamese food is usually non-fried and almost every meal consists of at least a bit of vegetable. Count in rice or rice noodles as a side dish and you have a fairly healthy cuisine. Because of the ingredients, which consist mainly of vegetables, rice, eggs and occasionally meat, Vietnamese food is considered to be light and easy to digest.

As for the tastes, the food is usually not salty but rather it’s on the sweet or spicy side. When it comes to spiciness, it’s usually up to you whether you wish to have it spicy or non-spicy because the level of spiciness can always be adjusted by you. The food can mostly be served both ways, the spicy or non-spicy way and it would still taste delicious.  As for the stamp point food, it would be bún chả (noodles with grilled meat), phở gà (noodle soup with chicken meat), spring rolls (rolls filled with vegetables, noodles, eggs, meat and other ingredients) and surely many others.
