Great Dinner Place
Posted on 07 / 22 / 2009
We had trouble finding a place for dinner as many of the vegetarian places in Vienna are closed at night or outside of our price range.
The restaurant is on a great street with about 20 other restaurants, which we thought was great, having been to so many vegetarian restaurants in cities around the world in the middle of nowhere. There is an English menu, which is not particularly informative, (it's probably as informative as the one in German), and the staff speaks no English at all. A young Austrian woman seated next to us, said that even though it sounds a little weird, she recommended the Cordon Blue. However, as people who also keep kosher, we had no idea what it was. (It's vegetarian ham and vegan cheese around a vegan weinershnitzel.)
We also ordered something like Japenese Tofu with vegetables, which was a little spicy, but a terrific sauce. Both dishes were about 7 EU which was less than the other restaurants on the block. The whole neighborhood was a little funky. At the table next to us, the group was sharing a bottle of wine (I think BYOB) and drinking from the bottle. It was actually quite refreshing as most Austrians seem rather straight.
We would definitely go back, in fact we tried to go back the next morning as we picked up our car and drove out of the city to get vegiburgers to go (3 EU) However, we made one wrong turn and ended up getting horribly lost.
great Asian food, great Austrian food, reasonably priced
