Oriental

The day starts in the nice little deli with a creative breakfast and brunch selection (delicious vegan omelette!) and then moves on to uncomplicated bowl dishes, which are a visual delight thanks to the many colourful vegetables. The sandwiches - with Öfferl bread - are also a hit.

Italian

Molto bene! Every bite wonderfully highlights the Italian attitude to life. Classics such as bruschetta, panino or a fresh cornetto - also available for takeaway - are a must. But this is also an ideal spot for an evening aperitivo with delicious cocktails and antipasti plates.

A "caseificio" that couldn't be more beautiful in Italy: the brothers Pasquale and Gianni have dedicated themselves to cheese and serve all kinds of cheese of awe-inspiring quality in their bar. They also serve fine drinks and the perfect dolce vita feeling.

Soups

According to the five elements of TCM, the pots are stirred with great consideration for sensitive eaters, as curries, soups and stews should not only be delicious but also digestible. And the healthy lunch options also follow the seasonal and regional ingredients.

Tapas & Tacos

Monika Sims has perfected the production of her corn tortillas. The special original method, in which corn is soaked in lime, makes the flatbreads even more digestible. They are filled with Mexican specialties and topped with homemade guacamole or salsa.
Schönbrunner Straße 32
1050 Vienna
Austria
A high-end tapas bar with the best delicacies in Spain that deserve full attention and enjoyment. The main focus is on all kinds of Ibérico pork (lomo, chorizo). However, Jamón Ibérico de Bellota Gran Reserva, also known as Pata Negra, remains the flagship.

Thai

For a weekday lunch, the Southeast Asian dishes are available for takeaway. The name says it all, for those who like spicy to very spicy food, they will be at the destination of their dreams. The seats at the communal table for dining in are coveted spots indeed!
Laurenzberg 1/18
1010 Vienna
Austria
It is no easy task to get a table in this friendly little restaurant complete with a sidewalk garden. Those who manage it will be rewarded several times over - with the relaxed atmosphere, good drinks, but above all with the fresh, savoury and authentic Thai cuisine.

Turkish & Kebaps

Despite more space, you often have to be patient here: nowhere else, it seems, are the kebabs so popular. No wonder: home-baked bread, perfectly seasoned meat and crunchy vegetables are the ideal ingredients for this sandwich. This is how the cult snack should taste!.

Vegetarian & Vegan

Here everyone gets what they deserve: good food! And the food should not only be healthy, but also make you happy. Every spoonful of the vegan and vegetarian dishes in the form of curries and bowls is an explosion of flavour. Stylish location with a coffee shop atmosphere.
Neustiftgasse 43/2
1070 Vienna

Vietnamese

Behind the inconspicuous exterior, lies a sumptuous meal. The authentic Vietnamese dishes are served perfectly: with lots of crisp vegetables, fresh herbs and nuanced seasoning. The summer rolls are lovely. Wonderful menu choice: papaya soup!
Friedrichstraße 2
1010 Vienna
Austria

Sausage Stands

When visiting the opera, a stop at the legendary sausage stand is simply a must. A glass of Champagne is often enjoyed with Bosna, Krainer or Sacher sausages at this prominent address. But be careful with mustard and the like - because of your wardrobe, of course.

Asian

95
Inconspicuously located in the middle of a residential area, you would hardly expect to find such a top Vietnamese restaurant. The interior is also unassuming and simple, but the interplay of flavours on the plate is all the more spectacular. It is the spicy sauces - and meat from the Hödl - that make the dishes unique.

Balkan

Close to Yppenplatz, the display case of this lovingly decorated little restaurant is always full to bursting with what is probably the most popular of all Balkan street foods: burek with various fillings and sirnica are always freshly baked. They taste just as great on the spot as they do on the go.
Hubergasse 9
1160 Vienna
Austria

Bowls & salads

At weekend lunchtimes, the display case with its platters and bowls full of colourful lunch options whets the appetite: a wide variety of fine salads are complemented by stews and curries. From time to time, meaty dishes are also served, but the focus is on fresh veggie cuisine.
Färbergasse 3
1010 Vienna

Bread & sandwiches

Art, delicacies and the excellent cuisine of Marco Simonis come together here in a perfect symbiosis: you come to shop, look, taste, enjoy and indulge in changing dishes and classics (delicious beef tartare!). Vienna's best deli!.
Dominikanerbastei 10
1010 Vienna

Burger

Street food for gourmets: The meat from old dairy cows from the foothills of the Alps rests for seven weeks in the Dry-Ager before being turned into smash burgers in the hipster paradise. They are also repeatedly spiced up in the new outlet by highly decorated guest chefs. Served with "Brauton" beer.
Neubaugasse 72
1070 Vienna
Austria
What began with supplying restaurants with meat from old pasture-fed cows developed its own dynamic in burger form. Potted meat, clever sauces – we'll just say "Philly Cheese Steak" – and a penchant for natural wines and a laid-back attitude add up to an iconic restaurant.
Kettenbrückengasse 15
1050 Vienna

Home cooking

The beautiful market stall is a true gastronomic all-rounder. As a delicatessen and restaurant, visitors and market strollers are spoiled here from morning to night. The operators attach great importance to organic quality and seasonal ingredients from selected suppliers.
Meidlinger Markt
1120 Vienna

Indian

95
The diverse cuisines of North and South India come together here in a delicious combination: from "dosa" flatbreads with savoury fillings to tandoor dishes as well as the traditional "biryani" rice dishes. If you want to try as much as possible, choose one of the mixed thali plates.
Kandlgasse 44
1070 Vienna
Austria

Japanese & Sushi

The "Mochi" signature is clearly de rigueur here, where international classics merge with modern dishes from the Far East - all wrapped up in deluxe street food aesthetics, as for example, pimientos with miso mayo and pulpo with kimchi, the best of both worlds.
Schleifmühlgasse 8
1040 Vienna
Austria

Levantine

94
You can only tell that this used to be the restaurant Dom-Beisl by the decorative details. The Levantine spirit of Eyal Shani now reigns with his pita bread fillings or his famous oven cauliflower. The Levantine spiced lamb kebab and "Chicken Spachtel" are wonderful.
Schulerstraße 4
1010 Vienna
Austria

International

The delicatessen is King Gerald's castle! The discerning palate will find real deluxe street food here, including truffles, oysters and foie gras. Of course, everything is available to take away, but it tastes even better in the pub garden with a matching glass.
