My last night in Austria I went out for dinner with Lily, a fellow Canadian blogger from Explore for a Year and wanted to try more food in Austria.
There didn’t seem to be anything as iconic as wiener schnitzel, which is breaded pork. I am very familiar with the breaded meat category and had eaten my fair share of milanesa in Buenos Aires.
Although I can’t say I’m a fan and suspect that historically meat must have been breaded and deep fried when it was a cheap cut or bad meat.
We ate in the Innsbruck main square so the tourist restaurant gave us a bit helping of salad, which was nice to see.
However, I couldn’t escape the saltiness that seems to be prevalent in everything that I have eaten here. I cook so I’m not afraid of salt and think most food could use more of it but it felt as it there was so much sodium my fingers were already beginning to swell.
I won’t say that I’m giving up on food in Austria but I wouldn’t eat it in the main square again.
