For those who are homesick for Czech food, Marie Makovicka opened the Little Prague European Bakery & Deli in West Seattle. Her poppy-seed strudel has a flaky crust filled with dense poppy-seed paste, flecked with raisins and a hint of cinnamon and cardamom; savory stuff might include rich Moravian roast pork served over dreamy, light, moist wheat-flour dumplings along with the world’s best homemade sauerkraut. You can also special-order Czech favorites like svickova (slow-cooked beef, served with a sour cream gravy) and potato dumplings, not to mention plum dumplings made with cream-cheese dough (available seasonally).
