Viennese Food in Vienna

Das berühmteste Schnitzel Wien´s? 

What he says
I may not be Austrian and you may argue I know sh*t about Schnit, but in my opinion, no one quite beats their meat like ol’ Figgley.  I’ve eaten my fair share of Schnitzels, enough to pump-up my LDL and blow-out my waistline. This pizza-sized, paper-thin, breaded and fried veal cutlet is as good as they come.  Top it off with a bowl of potato salad drenched in Kernol, 2 mugs of wine and you’re sure to walk away with a distended bowel and a big smile. 

What she says
Selbst Vegetarier finden bei Figlmüller Einlaß. Es gibt zwar keine Auswahl an vegetarischen Speisen, dafür ist die einzige Option - der gebackene Emmentaler mit Sauce Tartare - einfach richtig gut. Dazu ein Erdäfpel-Vogerl Salat mit extra viel Kernöl und mein steirisches Herz schlägt höher.

Authenticity: 5 out of 5
Vegetarian-friendly: 1 out of 5
Price: €€
Style: Traditional Viennese Beisl
Overall: 4 out of 5 

(Main downside is it’s listed in about every Vienna tourist guide ever written)
