Less than an hour south of Plzeň, surrounded by lush countryside, lies Angusfarm Soběsuky, a cozy inn and hidden gem of a restaurant. Here in the rustic dining room one can sample locally raised, expertly grilled steaks of Aberdeen Angus beef accompanied by Czech classics like steak tartare and goulash soup. I recently had the opportunity to spend the evening at Angusfarm and was hardly surprised to learn that the restaurant has been endorsed by the Slow Food movement, an organization that links the pleasure of good food with commitment to the environment. From the delicate flavor of the beef broth in the soup to our succulent tasting plate of various cuts of steak (with port wine-and-rosemary and green-pepper sauces) this was a meal to be relished. And because no one who eats here—or indulges in the Moravian and French wines—will want to drive anywhere afterward, the stylish lodgings are highly convenient! A night in the Apartmá, a two-bedroom suite furnished in cowhide wall hangings and rugged wood furniture plus a sauna and freestanding tub, proved a refreshing escape from the city. Breakfast, a simple-yet-delicious spread of crusty bread and fresh fruit preserves and Czech-style scrambled eggs, is included in the room rate. For a romantic getaway from Prague or a chance to explore the rolling meadows and villages of west Bohemia via Plzeň, Angusfarm is a prime choice.
