Perhaps above all other view of Plzeň in 1991, the above view of Bezručova ulice refelcts best the feelings I had of time having stood still. I could compare the above view to that of a 1950s photograph and see very few differences – perhaps some decay but mostly, the two photographs would be similar.

An obvious equivelent, for me, would be France in the 1950s – this view brings to mind 1950s street scenes of France. But this was 1991. How charming it was! Where else could I have had the feeling of living in the epoch of my parents?

It’s a classic view of a classic steet which will never be removed from my mind.

But this is about the Moravská Vinárna (Moravian Wine Bar).

From the minute I entered, I fell in love. The atmosphere was right, the decor was right and they had liver on the menu!

I’d love to have their recipe. I’ve tried to reproduce it on numerous occasions over the past 15 years but I can’t get it right.

I have no idea how many times I ate here, but the liver dish was “off” all but twice. (towards the end they crossed it out in pencil on all menus).

They also had Vavřinecké.

Let’s skip past a few photos before I continue – one or two are quite important!

In passing, I’ll have to comment that, as seen above, by 1993 Bezručova ulice was no longer a 1950s street… it’s amazing how quickly the decades can pass once the brakes are removed…
