As soon as we walked in, we were struck by the white blazers worn by the waiters and servers – definitely a cool touch!
A nice little touch was a candle in a paper bag. The way the flame dances inside the paper bag mesmerised me constantly throughout the course of the meal.
– The menu –
Black pudding with potato cream and red cabbage salad
Black pudding is such a weakness of mine. Any time I see it, I get it. Here, I saw it, and I wasn’t disappointed. The black pudding was crispy on the outside and still slightly red and soft on the inside.
For any that don’t know – Black pudding is essentially a type of blood sausage made from pork blood and fat.
Red beet soup with roasted apples and daikon
Sweet, earthy and fresh flavours fill this bowl of soup. The soup was hearty and hit the spot.Braised lamb with white bean puree and savoy cabbage
Well, this was my first white bean puree. I don’t know if I was much a fan of it by itself, however, together with the lamb it works perfectly.
Wiener Schnitzel with potato and cucumber salad
The side dishes of potato salad and cucumber salad were both brilliant and we thought about asking for a refill on both bowls, alas, we didn’t…
I also struggle to find flaws in this dish, too. The schnitzel was HUGE, which got my alarm bells going when it arrived. As, in Berlin, we had a terrible experience with a disgustingly thick, poster sized schnitzel that was impossible to eat.
This, however, did not fit that bill.
Warm dark chocolate tart gives way to crunchy biscuit scattered on the plate, and a healthy dollop of delicious sesame ice cream.
This was the best meal we had in our 2 day (admittedly, a short time, yet still our pick of the bunch) stay in Vienna, Austria. Shortlist it for when you’re there and I assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
