The Praguery was born in Vancouver 2016
The traditional taste of Europe with a distinctly modern flare!
Jaroslav Mestka, known as Jaro (Yaro), was born in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic.
After years observing visitors to Prague and locals alike, enjoying trdelník, traditional Czech street food, he realized the potential of expanding the reach of his favourite traditional European food – a future world hit!
Upon moving to Canada, Jaro discovered that Vancouver would be the ideal place to introduce his favourite meal to a whole new market of food truck lovers. Thus, The Praguery was born.

How does The Praguery Chimney Cake taste?
Like nothing you’ve eaten before! Inspired by the traditional recipe – which is SO GOOD! – we’ve worked hard to make it EVEN BETTER for our discerning 21st-century customers. Your tastebuds will be delighted!
How traditional is it?
Dating back to 1450, the chimney cake originated in Transylvania (we know Vlad the Impaler would have loved them!) and is now celebrated as the oldest pastry in Hungary.
A popular street food today, the dough is coated with oil and sugar, and when baked creates a delectable crispy, crunchy outside (somewhat like a hot pretzel), with a delicious, tender inside.
What’s in a name?
Hungarians call it Kürtőskalács, Czechs call it trdelník. We challenge you to pronounce it, either way! Regardless, it’s delicious.
To make it easier for everyone, we just refer to this incredible and popular treat as a Chimney Cake (not to be mistaken for funnel cake) – a hollow column of deliciousness, served on its own or stuffed with your favourite fillings.
Kürtöskalács, trdelník, chimney cake, funnel cake, Prague Cone… no matter what you call it –– just call The Praguery!
