At Yori restaurant

Reastaurant review. A little piece of Korea in the middle of Vienna. We tried this restaurant called Yori. Restaurant Yori is located in the first district, just opposite the Urania. I should say the food was great 👍 thumbs up.

We are still on the go trying different restaurant in Vienna it is a long list but the problem is the time when? Not only to get know the food they serve but also the interesting stories that we may experience. Looking forward to discover more…

Maybe you are wondering why we love to try restaurants too. Simply because I want to learn more taste buds, more recipe, and more different food cultures.

🇦🇹PERSONAL FAVORIT

Here is a selection of my own personal ” favorite restaurants ” in Vienna. My family and I we often eat here when ever we had something to celebrate or just desire to eat. Price and portion for us is good.
The geographical position of Serbia and by the associated regional and national cultural exchanges, some dishes, cooking methods and ingredients have been acquired and integrated and adapted in their own kitchen, which developed mainly national versions or typical for the Balkan dishes. A traditional Serbian cuisine.

HOMOLJE GRILL RESTAURANT

It is a classic Balkan restaurant with a very good kitchen. For us speaking of service or ordering, we are satisfied. I discovered this restaurant through my colleague Jana, then I brought my family during my birthday celebration last January 3 of this year since we love grill and fresh salad. Specially their cucumber and tomato salad which is so fresh with kaymak cheese, with huge portions and good fries & grill . Side dishes you have all extra – order but price was characterized very good.

HOMOLJE GRILL Restaurant

Picture above was taken during the first time I visited this restaurant with my colleague Jana after our duty it was late lunch for both of us but we are both satisfied and that counts a lot. The thing is if you enjoyed the food and the athmospere for sure there will be a second time or even a third time and so on… Here I tried the so called “KARADORDE” or Karađorđeva šnicla. A Serbian breaded cutlet dish named after the Serbian Prince Karađorđe. It is a rolled veal or pork steak, stuffed with kajmak (Cream Cheese), and then breaded and fried. It is served with roasted potatoes and tartar sauce. With fresh salad, cucumber and tomatoe I love it! 🙂

PILGRIMAGE TO PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC

Last Saturday, May 4 the group of Caviteños (CIRCULO Caviteño) here in Vienna went on Pilgrimage to Prague. We left Vienna around 6:40 am and arrived in Prague around 12 noon. The pilgrimage was all about the Infant Jesus of Prague (Sto. Niño de Prague).

LUNCH/ ZEBRA ASIAN NOODLE BAR

Since we arrived noontime my daughter and I we had our lunch at Zebra Asian Noodle Bar located at old town square Prague. The decor is very well done, unfussy but still with many details. The menu is a culinary journey through Asia … Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese! The portions are adequate and very tasty. The staff was very friendly. (For more details check here out : http://www.zebranoodlebar.cz/) I got my garnished salmon with rice and with teriyaki sauce. While my daughter ordered spareribs with honey sauce. But beforehand we had won ton soup. And after attending the holy mass we had our coffee break at Starbucks/ Česká republika. As you could see picture above. Then we took a walk around the old town square. This was not our first visit to Prague. The last time we are here with my whole family was five years ago.

MAN AND FOOD-LIVING LIFESTYLE BY DORLLYMULTIPLY aka DOLLY!

Man does not live by bread alone. After a while, he needs a drink. Food comes first, then morals.

Not that I cooks badly, but there are continually any pygmies in my kitchen and dip their arrows in the soup. In wine there is truth!
We should leave life like a banquet, neither thirsty nor drunken. Said-Aristoteles 🙂 <<< The seasoning is hunger, hunger is the best sauce. There are diseases that can be cured by proper nutrition, I believe in this! Every woman is susceptible to good food. The men love those women most passionate, who understand how to prefix them the most delicious things. I am one of those women 😉

My SOTANGHON with SHRIMPS and CHICKEN BREAST

These are collections of candid photos of our dinner with my colleagues at work- Baxter Austria. Of course with my famous Sotanghon with shrimps and chicken breast and Siopao! 😛

My SEMOLINA CAKE

For our dessert, my baked Semolina Cake topped with coconut flakes and Robert (my colleague) prepared dumpling filled with rasberry!

SPAGHETTI WITH  SOYA-PASTASCIUTTA

FIRST ADVENT SUNDAY 2013 (NOYTUBE)

I spent the day today with my Noytube BFF Dana. We visited the “Unique location” the Vienna Christmas market is located infront of the Rathaus (Municipality/ City Hall) of Vienna. This market is considered as one of the best known and largest of Vienna and has a lot to offer aside from really big-giant Christmas tree. The magical Christmas markets. The aroma of Christmas bakery items and hot punch creates a pre-Christmas atmosphere. And in the Christmas shop children have the opportunity to let their creativity run wild. Countless stalls care for the physical well-being and there is a large range of craft and gift ideas. We warm up ourselves with a delicious mug of himbeerpunsch! 😉
We did our Video recording infront of it, which will be our part for the forthcoming NOYTUBE CHRISTMAS COLLABORATION 2013.

FIRST ADVENT SUNDAY 2013 VIENNA (NOYTUBE)

Then we had our light lunch at ROSENBERGER Restaurant behind Hotel Sacher at first district with her son- Daniel and my daughter. We had salad and soup so with the two kids. The Rosenberger Restaurant is an Austrian company in the hospitality industry with a focus on operation of motels and motorway service station. But the one which is located at Maysedergasse 2 at first District of Vienna, is not that bad, one can wondefully meet someone for coffee or lunch to eat something. Often I have just salad with a soup just like today.

Stupid thing is that it extends the whole thing over several floors and basement floors. Since you felt funny when you drive with a full tray of food inside elevator. But you can also sit down somewhere and if you want to stay for more hours. How long you sit , namely nobody cares. 😛

FIRST CANDLE LIGHTNING 1. ADVENT SUNDAY (Week)

Came back home around six pm just about the right time to light the first candle for the first advent Sunday (week). We begin this first week of Advent by asking Christ to come, to set us free from our sins and from the punishment that we deserve. He is our salvation. On 01 December 2013 is the first Advent. The first Sunday of Advent recalls the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.

Wishing you all a nice first advent Sunday!
