Austria Cuisine and Food

Local Cuisine

Austrians love good food. Many of their dishes have been influenced by Czech, German, or Hungarian cooking. Popular meats include beef, chicken, pork, sausage, and veal. An Austrian dish called Wiener schnitzel (breaded veal cutlet) has become a favourite in many countries. Popular side dishes in Austria include dumplings, noodles, and potatoes. The people drink beer or wine with many meals. The delicious cakes and pastries created by Austrian bakers are world famous.

Austrian food is similar to German food, but with Hungarian and Slav elements lingering from the days of the Empire. Most food is simple meat and potatoes fare, but when you begin to tire of it, you can always liven things up with a spicy gulasch or a dish prepared Zigeuner-style. Schnitzel is a meat cutlet or, veal unless otherwise specified, pounded thin, usually breaded and sauted with or without sauce.

This is a famous local dish eaten among the Austrians. Usually spiced with paprika,and served with potatoes, but more often served with bread or some kind of dumpling. A Viennese specialty is Fiakergulasch, with an egg in it and is supposedly favored by the Fiaker drivers (a horse-drawn carriage) of Vienna.

Wiener Backhendl (Backhuhn)
Most Americans would be surprised to learn that the Viennese make or prepare fantastic fried chicken, which is occasionally served with salads, vegetables or pickled meats.
