🇦🇹ANOTHER GASTRONOMIC ADVENTURE WITH AN EX-COLLEAGUE – CELEBRATED CHINESE NEW YEAR – EAT-OUT DINNER

👩‍🍳 Event gastronomy in Vienna, the culinary attractions in Vienna are diverse. If you are looking for something for everyone who is enthusiastic about a meal with a high entertainment value and event character, Vienna has a lot to offer. But these are small Restaurants in the city that are run by Asian people whom we love to try from time to time. Exempted is the Vegan ice which is run by Austrian and the Krah Krah Restaurant in the First District of Vienna which I tried with my ex-colleague. First Stop, lunch at Krah Krah Restaurant run by Austrian. 1980s Ale pub with the garden serving international food and drink including giant sandwiches. Rabensteig 8 A-1010 Vienna

The next one is one of our favourite Restaurants near Naschmarkt. With authentic Asian Cuisine. Restaurant Chinazentrum Zhong Xin For more than 15 years they have been spoiling guests from all over the world with traditional Chinese food and drinks at the Naschmarkt in 1060 Vienna. A Far Eastern ambience awaits you in our restaurant. “Zhongxin” means centre and their first location from 2002-to 2014 was on Rechte Wienzeile 29, 1040 Vienna. In 2014 they relocated to 1060 Vienna. Linke Wienzeile 44 1060 Vienna

The third one is Soya Noodles their meals are inspired by simple Asian cuisine. Prepare them daily from fresh ingredients and they do not use glutamate. They love coconut, ginger, chilli and Thai basil, so you can find them in most of their meals. Amerlingstraße 19, A-1060 Vienna

The last one is the Veganista Ice Cream. Run by two sisters who have been vegan for over 20 years and have been passionately pursuing a big dream: to produce honest and delicious ice cream. No artificial flavours, colours or powders. Simply the best ice cream with the best ingredients. Amerlingstraße 19, Vienna

The psychology of menus. Trying different Restaurants in Vienna as frequent as I can with my bff, daughter and hubby. Vienna has something for every taste when it comes to what’s “In” from coffee hauses 🏘 Bars, Tavern, and Restaurants. Like from a modern European eatery, neighbourhood cafe’ or even a popular seafood restaurant which I love most. The start of my dining journey right this year.

Above here with my bff Dana, having our linner at Okiru Running Sushi 🍣 with tippanyaki buffet. Was great 👍 delicious delight and we had fun, fasting before visiting the place is highly recommend 🤣 because of “cook and eat all you can”!🍽😋✅

It is a bit expensive but it has a huge variation of food 🥘 and where the running Sushi 🍣 everything are fresh and you can also see how they prepared in the middle of the trendmill. Clean and treandy too. Most of all the staff are very accommodating and friendly.

#friendshipgoals Saturday good vibes😊 catching up with my bff Dana again as frequent as we can, at Fischviertel Restaurant in Naschmarkt. Who knows how life is in the future.

According to the owner, trust is extremely important to them – to maintain a personal relationship with their dealers and check the quality of their fishing 🎣 methods, breeding criteria and hygiene conditions on site. I mean about the seafoods they serve in the restaurant. The Crostian🇭🇷 Chef 👨‍🍳 of the restaurant will spoil you with the excellent dishes. It is freshly cooked from the kitchen, served by a friendly waiter, a good glass of wine 🍷 and you are happy. 😌 What I Love ❤️ most is a pot of mix mussels in white wine. Take it away from me Folks! 😊

We hardly find time to spend together.😒 But finally a mother – daughter afternoon at Crazy Lobster. Enjoyed our food 🥘 and drinks.🍹🍸🍷 Definitely we are coming back again.

Crazy Lobster is a steak 🥩 and lobster restaurant in the heart ♥️ of Vienna. It offers whole fresh Lobster, snow crab 🦀 steak 🥩 burger 🍔 soup 🥣 pasta 🍝 shrimp 🦐 🍤 salad 🥗 and cheesecake 🧀 for dessert 🍨 and many more. Ambient is great 👍 too.

Here finally! #brunching with my two kids at the Brickmakers Pub & Kitchen in seventh district of Vienna. The home of craft beer 🍻 and authentic American BBQ 🍗 🍖 near us. Brunch is usually served on weekends and holidays. They also have live band and DJ. Every Monday they have its famous Brisket serving with a side dish of your preference like potatoes 🥔 salad 🥗 red slaw, baked beans, corn 🌽 cobs, romaine lettuce, creamy Savoy cabbage with cardamom and croutons, Pilsner Urquell or Gold Fassl beer 🍻 fresh as you can get from their tanks. Go and visit them try their menus as well!😊

These are for a moment ☝️ will keep you updates on my next journey. Guten Appetit!

🇦🇹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! 🙂

I love shrimps garlic from this restaurant, cooked fresh and not too much oil. Also the steamed halibut fish with spring onions. While my kids had chicken fillet with vegetables in sweet sour sauce. You could have lunch for two person with two different viand and rice including soup at resonable price for only 13 euros. A very recommendable restaurant at Naschmarkt.
