Not a joke is the hearty, satisfying nature of the cuisine here. You know there are few things more satisfying than a good wiener. Or so I'm told. So we're going to have to watch our consumption over the next week - so many cakes and tafelspitzez and rostibrats and all.
I can't visit a city without researching restaurants. Chowhound isn't my favorite thing (I admit it, I didn't love the personalities on the Tokyo board when I used to blog about Tokyo all the time, plus I was bitter that the moderators would delete my posts with links to my own reviews.) but one guy on the Vienna forum, a seeming local named Sturmi, posts with at least as much zeal and knowledge as I used to apply to Tokyo. And this was his recommendation for traditional stodge closest to my hotel. Voila.
And it also makes you want to kick off your shoes and pass out.
