|I'm back, and I'm hungry!|
And so, without further ado, please enjoy this not-quite-wordless-Wednesday post outlining our gluttony on day one.
We arrived at the crack of dawn after an incredibly uncomfortable overnight train from Krakow, so our first order of business was procuring some coffee. We headed to Aida in Stephensplatz:
|I love that coffee always comes with a little glass of water|
But we needed solid sustenance as well, so we got something I had been craving since our trip to Vienna the year before: a mayonnaise ei. Yes, there is an egg buried beneath that glorious shiny casing! And I know what you're thinking, and yes, it does rather look like that. Knowing the Viennese, I suspect it is no accident:
I was happy to see that the Sperl kitty was still there!
Last year Poppa Trix and I saw people picking it in the Wienerwald. A wild garlic, it's related to ramps, which I talk about here. The barlauch soup was intense, and I loved it:
|Knockerl with sundried tomato and cheese and ham and .... mmmmm|
More asparagus ...
Viennese dogs are lucky dogs
I sure hope that chicken didn't lay that egg!
So many spices
Phonixhof in Neubaugasse, where we indulged in some schnitzel:
Nearly as big as the plate!
