LE BOL



Just a few steps away from from Kärnter Straße in the 1st district in the city center of Vienna you find an authentic piece of France. My very favourite French bistro is located at Vienna 's Neuer Markt. 

Le Bol is combination of bistro , patisserie, cafe offering typical french cuisine. 

Moreover you find various gourmet specialties from France like Kusmi tea, jam or wines can be purchased in the restaurant. 

I love the great atmosphere of Le Bol. The low ceilings, soft lighting and depth of the restaurant make a cozy and pleasant dining atmosphere. 



The food is always freshly prepared and they serve nice big portions :) You can taste the good quality products. 

You find a variety of baguettes and tartines, along with numerous other salads, desserts on the menu. It is always so hard to choose. But I now my favourite: Monsieur Soignon - a warm goats cheese salad. I adore it.



The last time I visited Vienna, I went with my best friend Nina. We were sitting at our favourite place. The  huge "table commune" in the centre is so Parisian, giving you the ultimate frenchy feeling. 

The coffees are served in nice little bowls. 

Monsieur Seguin 

"Monsieur Segiun" is the highlight on the menu. It is absolutely the best chèvre chaud I have ever tasted. And I have tried many many salads aux chèvre chaud. 

I am obsessed  with that salad. I will make it soon and upload the recipe

The sweetness of the fruits and the mustard dressing balances by goat cheese taste.  fruit and mustard dressing 

I promise, I will definitely try the salad and post the recipe online. 



This charming little café and bistro is undoubtedly a place to return to, and in fact, many of the guests are regulars. Next time we’ll go on a Saturday morning for breakfast, or perhaps in the afternoon to try their patisseries, or anything and everything else in between. It would be impossible to feel out of place here… casual or elegant work equally well. One comes here simply to enjoy the pleasures of the table, to eat well-prepared food, drink good wine and to share a little bit of the French savoir faire in the process. Bon appétit!

Le Bol ilways busy. especially in summer it is hard to get a free table. waiting time. but its worth it. 

For eat in or take away. definitely worth a visit.

KUSSMAUL

This does not happen often, but I fell in love head over heels. KUSSMAUL is definitely on the very top of my love list. My new favourite spot in Vienna.

on the first sight

 I discovered it by accident while strolling up and down the lovely Christmas market in the cosy little side street of the Spittelberg in heart of the 7th district.

The impressive ambience of the Kussmaul reminds me a lot of my favourite restaurant Nomad in Sydney. The concept combines cosmopolitan chic paired with slow food and outraging service.

The restaurant combines the elements of a casual cafe, trendy bar and exclusive dining under one roof. I love the open kitchen design which allows to observe the chefs and patissiers within their element. And the wintergarden! Where you will find seasonal herb gardens hanging in the windows. 

Mario Bernatovic who is the former kitchen chef from the famous restaurant "Motto am Fluss" has now very successfully invented his own baby. 

Just just see yourself:

 

The manifesto embraces the "harvest natural cuisine". It practically means that all their dishes are artisanal and hand crafted masterpieces using solely seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. The menu fusions international cuisine with traditional Viennese specialities. 

We ordered brunch which included home made granola with fruit and yoghurt, an amazing avocado banana salad, a soft boiled egg, hummus and baby spinach salad and freshly toasted handcrafted bread. Johannes decided for typical Austrian creamy  tribes garnished with chervil and chives.  

My personal favourite - have a guess-  the scrambled eggs with avocado tartar and pumpkin seed oil. I just love anything containing avocado and eggs.

We could not help ourselves but order some dessert. 

You are in heaven! 

The house patisserie offers a wide range of mouthwatering sweets. Just to mention a few of these little naughties: home made cheesecake, caramel slices, carrot cake macarons, caramelised lemon tart, blackberry Eclairs, hand-rolled chocolate truffles, chocolate glazed cake pops, broiche cakes and other lovely pastries...

The decision was hard but we had to make one. 

The macarons and cheesecakes were divine.

Never leave Vienna without a kiss. 

Kussmaul is not only the perfect place for your next dinner and drinks but also ideal for your weekend brunch or afternoon tea and cake. 

I can not wait to return next time!

SOUPKULTUR

Soupkultur is a well-kept insider tip to locals. And seriously one of my favourite quick lunch places in Vienna. 

Why?

They offer the best and freshest and tastiest food. Seriously the salads are simply amazing!  Plus the price is surprisingly reasonable.

During my visit in Vienna I just could not resist but going there for lunch almost every day.

If you hit 'rush hour' that little place will be very busy. Especially, during peak time the people are likely queue up onto the street. 

In order to skip that queue you can either pre-order your salad and have it ready for pick-up on a certain time or your can make use of the offered delivery service. That green bike you see in the picture will bring you your order timely and fresh to your home or office (within the 1st district).

The service is quick and very friendly, always welcoming you with a smile.


Almost impossible to get tired of what they offer. 

You can decide between warm soups or healthy salads. They come along with freshly baked bread or rolls. Moreover, freshly squeezed juices or desserts are available.  Every month a different seasonal salad special is offered.

Also no problem for lactose or gluten intolerant customers as they are indicated on the menu.

It is the place where you will find your favourite.

 

SOUPS

The soup offer changes weekly. As it is very internationally touched you can travel all culinary cuisines. Start with a French red capsicum soup, experience the Brasilian fish soup with avocado and coconut or taste the peuvian 'Sopa Camoles con Naranjas' with sweet potato.

Whenever they have the yellow Indian lentil soup. The taste is very authentic. And I know it ;)

SALADS

They have so many different salads you can chose of. Just to mention a few of their signature salads and to get you more curious. The offer ranges from a mouthwatering Asian Salad with mango and prawns spring onion and coriander to an Austrian mountain cheese salad with walnuts and grapes.

Here you can find their whole menu (only in German unfortunately)

 

I have tried many of them. And my recommendation is the Greek pasta salad. It is made with grape leaves, black olives, cherry tomatoes, feta and basil with a lemon olive oil dressing.

Nonetheless, my absolute favourite which I order e v e r y time is the a chicken breast and lettuce salad coming with a white vinegar and olive oil dressing. Simple but incredibly tasty. That's quality.

Another thing I love about Soupkultur that you can 'personalise' your food.  

Just add your favourite extra. A drip of extra vergine olive oil or white vinegar. A pinch of freshly cracked sea salt and black pepper or what about adding some soy sauce or chilli your soup or salad?

I personally love the Austrian pumpkin kennel oil and sambal oelek. So yum.

Salad, baby!

YES. I had my favourite salad. And it seriously made my day.

 


Soupkultur is the healthy fast food alternative for lunch.  

Always freshly prepared and high quality food offered at perfect value for money makes it THE place to have your lunch break. I would go every day if I was still living around.

Either for eat in or take away. Soupkultur definitely worth a visit (or even a couple..!)

Remember to get there early so you don't hit the peak time!
