I've written about Vienna eat's a couple of time's before here and here but on this trip I discovered (with the help of my lovely lady friends!) some new places.
First of all the ladies had been raving about the new sweet treat Hungarian Bumkuchen, or Chimney Cake, that you can find at Vienna's awesome outdoor market the Naschmarkt. We headed down there and there they were, dudes making doughy cylinders of awesomeness right in front of my eyes!
Once the dough has been cooked you pick what it gets rolled in, I went for cocoa sugar & the other options were cinnamon sugar, sugar & toasted hazelnuts.
Look at that! It was hot, delicious & a little like a donut. If you're in Vienna definitely try to get yourself one of these.
Whilst I was in Vienna it was pretty damn cold so we spent quite a bit of time hanging out at Cafe Espresso. I've only recently started liking hot drinks & my drink of choice is a decaf soya milk cappuccino.
The coffee here's excellent & there's a really nice relaxed atmosphere - you could totally sit in here all day!
I did of course eat some savoury food whilst I was in Vienna and the new place we tried out this time was Cafe Nil. This Egyptian place has a menu with a huge vegetarian section, most of which is vegan. The menu's in German so I got Melanie to help me pick, as soon as she read out the description of this dish I knew my decision was made. Rice topped with pasta topped with lentils, chickpeas & tomato sauce & covered in fried onions - hell yeah!
This was SO good, I want to be eating it right now. You get the sauce on the side so you can pour it over the dish yourself & there are two kinds of carbs - this couldn't be much more awesome if it tried!
Sadly this is the end of Vegan MoFo travel week, starting tomorrow it's cookbook challenge week. Every day I'll be picking, at random, two or three recipes to make from my cookbook collection, so who know's what I'll be eating...well I kinda do because I had to do the first couple of days food shopping but you get the idea!
Also, don't forget to enter the competition on my last post, it's right here & you have until 9am on Saturday 13th.
