I’ve always been a fan of street food. Sometimes you’re just plain hungry, and you’re not in the mood for waiting for a table, waiting for your food, then waiting for the check at a restaurant. And, with street food, the product is usually on display so you kinda know what you’re getting into.
The street food (actually all of the food) in Vienna was surprisingly delicious. There were sausage kiosks, Asian noodle stands, and pizza vendors, amongst others. I was a huge fan of the sausage stand in front of the Albertina Museum, Bitzinger Wurstelstand.
Its menu was entirely in German, which was kind of tough, but everything that we got was so good, that in the end, it didn’t really matter. They’ll serve your sausage in a hollowed out bun or sliced, with a small fork/tooth pick. And their pretzels are fantastic, as well. They were firm and flavorful, and totally different from the squishy, doughy ones you sometimes get at a baseball game in the U.S.
As an added bonus, it’s across the street from the Vienna Operahouse, Staatsoper, so you could stop in for a snack before or after a performance. Don’t worry – you can still class it up if you’d like – they serve Moet.
