FOOD AND DRINK
--------------
LUNCH IS USUALLY SERVED BETWEEN 12 NOON AND 2 P.M. AND
DINNER FROM 6.00 P.M. TO 10.00 P.M. THE COFFEE HOUSES
OF VIENNA HAVE THE REPUTATION, OF BEING OASES OF GOOD
LIVING AT A LEISURELY PACE. VIENNESE COOKING HAS TAKEN
IDEAS FROM EVERY CORNER OF THE OLD EMPIRE AND ADJUSTED
THEM INTO A NEW ENTITY.

EATING OUT
----------
THE VIENNESE LIKE TO EAT WELL AND LIKE TO MAKE SURE THAT
THEIR VISITORS DO TOO. THERE ARE MANY RANGES OF EATERIES,
FROM SNACK BARS, COZY PUBS KNOWN AS BEISEL TO ETHNIC
SPECIALITY RESTAURANTS AND GOURMET RESTAURANTS KNOWN FOR
THEIR NOUVELLE CUISINE AND TRADITIONAL AUSTRIAN CUISINE.

TYPICAL MEALS
-------------
ONE OF THE MAIN MEALS SERVED IN AUSTRIA IS THE FAMOUS
"WIENER SCHNITZEL", THIS IS VEAL DEEPFRIED IN BREADCRUMBS.
ROAST PORK WITH DUMPLINGS AND FRESH FISH FROM THE DANUBE
ARE COMMON DISHES. OTHER TRADITIONAL AUSTRIAN DISHES ARE
"TAFELSPITZ" CALF'S LIVER WITH HERBS IN BUTTER, GEROSTETE
LEBER, GOULASH, KAISERSCHMARRN, PALATSCHINKEN & SALZBURGER
NOCKERLN. VIENNESE CUISINE IS STRONGLY INFLUENCED BY THE
SOUTHEAST EUROPEAN CUISINE.

TYPICAL DRINKS
--------------
WATER IS FRESH AND PURE, BEER IS TASTY AND STRONG, BUT IT
IS WINE THAT IS MOST CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH VIENNA.
LOCAL WINES OFTEN SERVED IN OPEN CARAFES ARE EXCELLENT & CHEAP.
SPIRITS SUCH AS WHISKY, GIN & IMPORTED BEERS ARE EXPENSIVE.
OBSTLER IS A VERY STRONG, AND WIDELY DRUNK BECAUSE IT IS
CHEAP AND WELL FLAVOURED.
