The perfect accompaniment: ice-cold cava or gin and tonic (with Spanish gin, of course). Conclusion: a wonderful place to ring in the evening. With a little luck (reservations are not accepted) even at the coveted high table.

In the former dialect in Vienna’s city center, things are now Mexican – with Latino fast food from tacos to burritos.

November: not the best time of the year in Vienna. The gray-on-gray before the Christmas madness breaks out everywhere is difficult to digest. A new downtown bar wants to do something about it. With brightly colored tablecloths, latino music and Mexican food.

A visit to the Taco Aunt doesn’t seem that new. Until recently, dialect was at home between the beggar student and the Bettel Alm. The chic interior of the previous restaurant was only slightly adapted. The railing now shines in bright red, the lampshades above the bar shine in the South American design by Montes Clark. However, if you know the place from before, you will not get rid of the feeling that you simply put a sombrero on the shop.

In terms of food, the signs point to fast food à la Mexico. There are tacos with guacamole, pickled onions and coriander, followed by pulled beef, marinated pork or chicken (from 7.80 euros for four pieces). More hungry guests order burritos with rice, beans and the ingredients listed above (from 7.80 euros).

In terms of snacks, the inevitable (not Mexican, but who wants to look closely) sweet potato fries (four euros) shouldn’t be missing. And if you have a piece of dental floss with you, you can also order the corn on the cob with queso and chipotle mayo (4.80 euros). All in all, a very funny place that will not compete with the long-established Mexican, the Salud. If you have a taco taste when you leave, you can comfortably satisfy here quickly.

Irene Pöhl, the grande dame of the Viennese Kutschkermarkt, and the Mayr couple, have brought attention to detail on board.

Irene Pöhl’s delicatessen stand has enjoyed great popularity on the Kutschkermarkt since 1979. You just can’t give up a place like that. Even when retirement is approaching and the next generation is not in the mood for the (undoubtedly not exactly easy) market stall life. A topic that Pöhl chatted with longstanding customers. And as is so often the case here, talking brought people together. Florian and Ines Mayr had been looking for a special gastro project for a long time – and found it as new business partners of Pöhl.

The couple didn’t want to rush anything, so they worked for a year and a half to get to know everything – the processes, the customers, the colleagues. Only then did they begin to change things with a sure instinct. For example, there has recently been a new breakfast that was inspired by the couple’s travels and is made with mostly regional, hand-picked products: for example, the Ibiza plate with a wonderfully fruity combination of spelled bread, sheep ricotta, seasonal fruit and fine Bircher muesli (7th grade) , 90 euros).

© Susanne Jelinek Even the Mango Lassi on the Ibiza plate is homemade

Or the Stockholm breakfast with wonderfully tender wild salmon, orange mustard gervais, half-dried tomatoes, truffle brie, caramel nuts and Madame Crousto bread (15.50 euros).

The biggest eye-catcher is the “Mercado Boqueria” toast, for which the slow baker Kasses created a bread with activated charcoal (9.50 euros) – just like the Mayrs got to know on a Barcelona trip. You can feel it with every bite: they work with great attention to detail.

© Susanne Jelinek Eye-catcher: black toast with hummus, tomato tartar, bacon, poached egg and rocket

Walter Piller and Alen Sinanovic cook for the Vienna Athletics Club in the Prater. Non-athletes now also benefit from this.

First train, then grab something hearty with the sports colleagues in the club canteen and lift a beer with it. It looks something like that, the clichéd idea of ​​club sport sociability.

Anyone who takes a seat in the Volee immediately notices that this approach does not apply here. The WAC restaurant was previously reserved for members who had been cooked for a few months by the gastro duo Walter Piller (formerly Dots) and Alen Sinanovic. When designing the menu, the two 25-year-olds oriented themselves towards the preferences of the athletes (a clear kitchen line is therefore hardly to be found, but that doesn’t bother us). The food also makes non-WACers happy, which is why the restaurant is now open to the public.

Living room elements have been integrated so that you don’t have the feeling that you are sitting in a sports canteen. Persian carpets under some tables, plants, numerous hanging lights and a couch corner should make you feel at home. The attentive, but not intrusive service contributes to the rest.

Everyone should find something on the colorful menu – for example the Thai coconut soup Tom Ka Gai (4.90 euros), the hearty cheeseburger with homemade onion confit and crispy rosemary fries (12.50 euros) or the juicy minced patties with potato puree (10 ,50 Euros). Everything succeeded across the board and worth a visit on your next walk in the Prater. When the temperature is warm, you can also take a seat in the green garden.

The Veganista sisters have fulfilled their dream of having their own restaurant based on the Californian model in Vienna’s Neubau.

Do you know this feeling when you come back from a trip with your head full of ideas? Inspired by strange places and the break from everyday life, you want to do so many things differently. Unfortunately for most of them this feeling disappears within a very short time, but for some it is the starting signal for change.

Cecilia Havmöller and Susanna Paller belong to the second group. The sisters have been successful with their vegan ice cream parlor chain The Veganista since 2013. In California they found inspiration for new things. It should be a cool place with vegan dishes that taste good but are also really healthy. Just as it is common in Los Angeles. In the local gastronomy scene, plant-based cuisine is interpreted as light, chic and trendy, the word “vegan” does not, as in this country, have to contend with prejudices (eco! Bland! Tasteless!).

© Susanne Jelinek The smoothie with blue majik algae doesn’t taste as dangerous as it looks (but rather berry!)

The sisters chose the address where their ice cream started as the location for their dream restaurant: Neustiftgasse in Vienna-Neubau. The source of inspiration Los Angeles (nickname “La La Land”) can be found in the name of the lovingly designed and cheerful restaurant in shades of pink: The Lala.

You can order bowls, which are called roundies (from 8.90 euros), porridge (7.90 euros), salads (from 9.90 euros) and breads (7.90 euros). Everything with funny names, everything peppered with microgreens, kale, algae, quinoa, berries and the like. Those who eat healthily will be happy here – even if they can’t get a seat: the food is also available to go. In plastic-free boxes, of course.

© Susanne Jelinek The food does not contain sugar or animal products

Lately, numerous successful restaurants have relied on a second branch. The latest case: Le Bol in Naglergasse.

Although French cuisine is one of the most renowned in the world, there are comparatively few restaurants in Austria that are dedicated to cuisine française. One of the most successful exceptions is Le Bol on the Neuer Markt. Always more than well-attended, the bistro in Vienna’s inner city established a seat at a long table. “How, should I sit there with strangers?” Was quickly replaced by the chic feeling of knowing a place where even the quaintest Viennese can feel a little French.

Well, if the French are known for something, it’s probably because they don’t care about trends. “Is that what everyone is doing right now? Not with us! ”Surprisingly, Le Bol turns a blind eye and joins the ranks of successful restaurants that open a branch. From Paco to Joseph Bistro to Honu Tiki Bowls: What works is often multiplied right now.

Le Bol has transformed the former Crazy Lobster into a wonderful French bistro for its offshoot. In light white, with a view of Naglergasse – and of course a long table as the centerpiece. If you take a seat there, you can sip your coffee from the typical Le Bol cups without a handle (from 2.70 euros) or order one of the fine hot drinking chocolates (from 3.90 euros).

In terms of food, it is extremely difficult to choose between hearty baguettes (from 5.40 euros), French salads (from 8.50 euros) and wonderful quiches (9.50 euros). But one thing should never be missing here: there must be space for a croissant (2.70 euros).

At the Volkertmarkt in Vienna, a small eatery tries to strike a balance between French, Vietnamese and Portuguese cuisine.

As a market fan you are in good hands in Leopoldstadt: on the one hand the hip Karmelitermarkt (especially on Saturdays) with its varied gastro environment, on the other hand the rather quiet, but immensely lively front garden market thanks to the Mochi Ramenbar. Not to forget the very rustic Volkertmarkt: Thibaut Lastel has recently been enriching market life there. The French father (“he put my passion for food in my cradle”), the Vietnamese grandmother and one of the favorite holiday destinations Portugal: This mix determines the culinary offer in his banlieue, a small stall with which he meets the marketers has already made a name. Hardly anyone goes by on our visit without exchanging a word or two with the newcomer. And some people get stuck, but then take a seat and order something from the small menu.

Thibaut is proud of his Bánh mì: he serves Vietnamese sandwiches with pork, homemade sausage in a banana leaf, pate, carrots and coriander, of course in French baguette. For those who don’t like pork: A vegetarian variant and one with fish are also offered (5.50 euros each), and Vietnamese summer rolls are also a must (3.90 euros).

Another mainstay are sardines from Portugal and France, some of which are served warm (from 8.50 euros). The Austrian family has also left its mark: the beef goulash (5.50 euros) is so popular that you can also buy it in a glass to take home.
