Viennese cooking shows
itself like a good quality mix of different
cooking traditions, which have got in
touch and messed up one with each others
in the long period of Habsburg domination.
Among all the courses of a typical Viennese
lunch there is always meat, which can
be presented like Wiener Schnitzel (breaded
cutlet served with french fries) or like
the elaborate Tafelspitz (boiled beef
with vegetables). Not only excellent beer
but also good new local wine are advised
to complete well austrian meals. But the
strong point arrives at the end; however
full up may you are, you won’t be
able to renounce to the typical sweets,
which are the pride of a national prestigious
pastry. With Sacher Torte, Apfel Strudel,
Buegel and many others you can conclude
in a better way your own meal or you can
treat yourself to a sweet pause during
the day. Those people who want to taste
the deliciousness of typical cooking can
choose among many city restaurants which
suggest the traditional recipes; instead
for having a snack made in Vienna you
should stop at Wurstelhotten, a street
stand where you can taste classic wurstel.
