While my in-laws were here visiting, we decided to try and find the apple strudel place as seen on the T.V. show "Samantha Brown's Passport to Europe."  The show appears on the travel channel and she had an episode in Prague that aired a few weeks before we moved here.  On the show, Samantha finds an apple strudel place that is supposed to have the best strudels in Prague.  My step-dad, Tom, found directions on the internet on how to get to this place.  On the show she said it was hard to find, and she wasn't lying.  When we were walking to it, we didn't think we were in the right place as it is hidden in a low-income housing development. When we did finally find it, it was like deja-vu.  We immediately recognized the owner of the little store.  The strudels were just as they appeared on the T.V. show and they were amazing.  Each strudel was piping hot and was probably a foot long.  The price was nice too, with each strudel costing about $1.50.  It was well worth the thirty minute walk from my flat and it was fun to see the place we'd seen on T.V.

My wife and I made a video about finding the little orange strudel shop featured in the episode: http://vimeo.com/15804670

I recently went to Susta Strudl because Samantha Brown claimed it was the "best in Europe" and as much as an adventure it was to find this place, the strudl was ok. It was pretty tasty, but it wasn't hot, which would've made it 10x better. But if you're looking for an experience and want to see for yourself, it was kinda fun trying to find the place.

All the directions to the strudel shop are correct. When taking the train it is at least an hour round trip from the city center. But be aware it is a small privately owned shop at the bottom of an apartment complex, and the single owner will open and close at any time. My wife and I took half a day dedicated to this place, just to find out that he closed the shop in the middle of the week and the middle of the day. One of the locals read the sign to us and it said that MAYBE he would open later in the day. Don't go if you're short on time, it was a huge disappointment.
