Austrian cuisine is known for its rich and hearty dishes influenced by its neighbours like Hungary, Czech and Bavaria. Some of the more popular Austrian dishes that we are familiar with are like Pork Schnitzel and Apple Strudel, which I am pretty sure some of you have tried before.
When we visited Vienna we were lucky to be able to sample a number of authentic Austrian dishes at very reasonable prices (I will explain later) So our overall dining experience at Vienna was a good one, just like how the city and the people are. Even after a year, this pleasant memory still feels fresh for me.
I’ve done my homework prior to coming and knew that Vienna‘s locally brewed beer is also a must try. Based on the hostel staff’s recommendation, we headed to 7 Stern Bräu, a restaurant and bar with an added attraction – a microbrewery of their own. Little did we know we liked the food and ambience so much that we even returned the next day for lunch.
The 7 Stern Specialties @ €12.80 is a melange of pork, turkey and chicken with green and white gnocchi (small soft dumplings) baked with a topping of mushroom sauce and melted cheese. Due to its huge portion this dish is meant to be shared between two people or even more. Taste wise, imagine the cheese baked rice we usually have at Char Chan Teng but substitute the rice with the soft and chewy dumplings. They taste quite similar actually.
