Food is a big deal in Austria. Think rich flavours, delicious meats and dense carbs, they have it all. While not always healthiest, Austrian food is in a class of its own and is also influenced by Germany and Italy. Austrian cuisine relies heavily on meats. One of the most famous dishes to emerge from this country is the wiener schnitzel, which is prepared with veal. One would say there is a surfeit of sausages in Austria with a number of different types of them being consumed here.
If you are of a disposition favouring sweeter dishes, then you won’t be disappointed. Austria does cakes very well. After all, it is the home of the Sacher Torte, the Linzer Torte, and the caramel flavoured Dobostorte to name a few. These are indeed specialty cakes and they are difficult to make at home, so you won’t be able to taste it anywhere else apart from a bakery where a Konditorei, a specialist of sorts, prepares them. Here’s a list of some of the places to eat in Austria.
