The Taste of Hungary in Vienna

Here are the Viennese food spots that make the Hungarian community feel at home.

Restaurant König von Ungarn

Royal classic Viennese cuisine since 1746 on which Mozart wrote to his father: “I assure you that this is a wonderful place.” as he he lived above the Mozarstüberl in the restaurant and also composed the opera Le nozze di Figaro. The Figaro House, officially named after this opera, is part of the building.

Budapest Bistro

“People who love to eat are always the best people.” – JULIA CHILD

An authentic breakfast place. Continental breakfast offers eggs, ham and kolbász (sausage), satisfying anyone hangry for Hungarian. Sweet and savory snacks (try pogácsa! as in the Hungarian folk tales), large warm breads, coffee, various tea blends, homemade syrup, homemade jam and many different specialties.

5., Pilgramgasse 10

(C) Piroschka

Piroschka

“Great things, great reconciliations, great joys are most easily born at a set table…”
What can be more authentic than this name, the Hungarian Little Red Riding Hood (piros is red).
Of course, they talk about paprika and they are not afraid of using it. So, start with a real gulyás then save room for paprikás csirke (chicken) or Hortobágyi palacsinta.
Do not leave without a dessert like somlói galuska or Gundel palacsinta!

18., Gersthofer Straße 140

If you want to taste the real Hungarian lángos, go to Prater and ask for the garlic- sour cream-cheese version of it! Safer after your dodgem ride.
