Top 3 Must-Try Foods in Vienna
Hey there, fellow travelers! Today I'm here to share with you my top 3 must-try foods in Vienna, Austria - fresh from my own trip to this fabulous city. Vienna is a city filled with rich history, art, music, and, of course, delicious food. As a recent traveler to Vienna, I was fortunate enough to explore the city and taste some of the best dishes it has to offer. So, without further ado, let's dive into my top picks!
1. Austrian Goulash
First on my list is the famous Austrian Goulash. This hearty dish is perfect for those chilly days in Vienna. It is made with tender beef, onions, and paprika, and is usually served with a side of bread or potatoes. The meat is slow-cooked until it's tender and flavorful, and the paprika gives it a smoky and slightly spicy taste. I highly recommend trying this dish at one of Vienna's traditional restaurants. Trust me; you won't regret it!

2. Sausages - All of Them!
Second on my list is a must-try for all sausage lovers out there. Vienna is famous for its sausages, and there are so many different varieties to choose from. You can find everything from the classic Wiener Schnitzel to the Frankfurter Würstel. My personal favorite is the Käsekrainer - a polish sausage filled with small cheese chunks that are melty and delicious when it's served. You can get it in a bun or cut up on a plate with a variety of mustards or sauces available. You can find these sausages at almost every street corner, but I really liked Wiener Würstl in the city center. There were both locals and tourists there when I was there, and the sausages were fresh and delicious.
3. Viennese Coffees - Melange
Last but not least, I have to talk about Viennese Coffees. Ok, technically not a food, but if you love coffee like I do, it has to be mentioned when talking about food in Vienna. Coffee culture is a big part of Vienna's history, and you can find some of the best coffee shops in the world here. I fell in love with the Melange, which is a traditional Viennese coffee made with espresso and steamed milk. It's similar to a cappuccino but with a slightly sweeter taste. You can find this coffee at almost every café in Vienna, and it was good no matter where I got it - even a popular chain café called Anker that we visited multiple times in multiple locations.
