A few years ago, Mozaika‘s burgers were named the best in Prague. Burgers outside of the U.S. are a sensitive subject: think of the role they play in the Whit Stillman film Barcelona, where the burger is symbol of what American can do right. The Mozaika burger may not be the best burger around, but it’s not an embarrassing attempt either.
The pros: It’s American sized, if a little sloppy—especially with the creamy mayonnaise topping, which tends to funnel down the edges of the lettuce—and comes with mushrooms, a rather Czech addition to a ground beef patty.
The cons: it’s never going to emerge from the kitchen anywhere near medium rare. Sorry.
In short, Mozaika is still worth a visit for those hungering for a slab of beef in Prague—think of it as burger outsourcing.
