Viennese Staple Food
When in Vienna there are numerous dishes to sample from but the two that appear again and again and receive much of Viennese cuisine attention is the Wiener Schnitzel and Apple Strudel.

Wiener schnitzel is a breaded veal cutlet usually served with roasted potatoes. The longer the meat is pounded, the more tender it becomes. It goes down easy with Ottakringer beer!

Vienna apple strudel was the best apple strudel I have ever had. The pastry crust was so thin and crispy and the inside was stuffed with loads of apples. The dessert goes really well with some Viennese coffee. If you have it in a fancy cafe as we did at the Schonbrunn Cafe, it can cost you upwards of 8 euro's.
