In 1822, Washington Irving said of Vienna: “Here the people think only of sensual gratifications.” Today, that still rings true. The Viennese don’t eat to live, they live to eat. Decadent pastries like Apfelstrudl, cheesecakes, tortes, Buchteln (warm cake with jam in the middle), Pcdatschinken, Krapfen, and Mohr im Hemd have all helped put Vienna on the culinary map. The restaurants near Karntnerstr. are expensive a cheaper area is the neighborhood north of the university, near the Votivkirche (U2: Schottentor), where Universitatsstr. and Wahringerstr. meet. Cafes with cheap meals also line Burggasse in district VI. The area radiating from the Rechte and Linke Wienzeile near Naschmarkt (U4: Kettenbriickeg.) has cheap restaurants. The Naschmarkt has the city’s biggest market, while Brunnenmarkt (U6: Josefstadterstr.) has a Turkish flair. Supermarket chains include Zielpunkt, Hofer, and Spar. Kosher groceries are available at the Kosher Supermarket, II, Hol- landstr. 10 (216 96 75).
