Eateries in Liberec offer some pretty decent finds, worthy in any central European capital. The difference is simply, price. Where the town may lack in choice of international eating options - unlike Budapest or Prague - it makes up for with value for money. For as little as $20 US you can eat as much, and more, for half as much as the costs in the capital.
Pasta dishes come in at five dollars and a glass of local beer as little as $1.50 US for a 0.5 litre measure. There's an old Czech joke about a boy who walks into a pub and asks for a Pilsner. The barman remarks that he's too young and that he should order a glass of lemonade instead. The boy ripostes that he'd like to but is short of a few Crowns (10 cents). This is the extent of things here in a land where beer is cheaper than bottled water and pop.
