Traditional Viennese food!

Pancake soup
This was taken on my second day in Vienna. This was dinner. And I picked this shop because I was so hungry and tired I just wanted to sit down and eat. It was a shop off the main street and had a small crowd already there. ( Very important! I wouldnt have gone to an empty shop) I picked the set meal which costs 11 euros I think minus the bubbly water I had. The soup was salty but warm and comforting. I thought it was nice but towards the end it just got too salty for me. ( I did however finish it in stages together with bites of the main dish)
Wiener Schnitzel and my map to the left of the picture
Here it is. Traditional Austrian fare. Instead of pork this was chicken. And the little coins of potatoes were a nice change from fried chips....and the lime was left alone because I wasn't too sure what to do with it. I think I did squeeze it onto the chicken eventually. But I preferred it without. It's very think ( I later read this was pounded slightly...tenderized I mean) and the whole entire meat is crispy. So I guess the oil must be nice and hot...and it certainly didn't taste of mucky oil ( like some recycled oil found in stalls in Malaysia) So, this was an enjoyable meal
Apple Strudel
This was pretty decent. We have great apple strudel in Malaysia too. So I wasn't too excited.  But I liked the main dish very much!!
