That tastes schnitzel.

After a rather festive evening amongst the fleshpots of Vienna some serious sustenance was required the following lunchtime, even after a reasonable breakfast.

A quick coffee in the Vienna Opera House café was taken, where it was decided that as we were in Austria, we should eat Austrian, or something as close as we could find.

No more than 500 metres later we walked past this place. Plastic tables and chairs inside, but it said Vienna cuisine, so in we went.

What is sure though is that the Viennese cuisine that was served up was muchos bon. Hot on a cold day, filling and very very tasty.

The outside doesnt look too inviting, and smoking is still allowed inside which would have seen me turn straight back round if anyone had been smoking when I walked in, but the food was quite simply excellent. No frills, no airs and graces, wholesome hot local food, well prepared and very reasonably priced.
