Austria, or the Republic of Austria, is landlocked in Central Europe bordering Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia and several more countries. Some of them have influenced the cuisine bringing it to the format we have it in now. The most visited city here is Vienna, which is the icon of Austrian cuisine. Come here to try traditional variants of goulash and tafelspitz.
One of the traditional dishes which you are sure to love being here is goulash. The variant you are going to enjoy is similar to Hungarian dish, which might have influenced it. The Austrians eat it with rolls, bread, and dumplings. Meat pieces are stewed with potatoes and some additional spices. While being prepared a thick spicy sauce is created, which makes the dish unforgettable. Come to Steirereck im Stadtpark to enjoy the traditionally cooked goulash.
If you want to know what Austrian emperors ate, order tafelspitz. The dish is made of boiled veal or beef boiled in broth, usually served with a mix of minced apples and horseradish. As emperors were mentioned, Franz Joseph I was a great lover of the dish. The meat is simmered so it becomes very tender and can be separated into pieces with a spoon. Its best variant is served at Plachutta.
Whenever you come to Vienna, you are to remember it for the tastes it offers.
