Ströck Feierabend is one of my go-to places on Saturdays. They offer delicious and regional food, they grow their own vegetables in Vienna and most important, they have awesome dessert ;)
As you may remember, I already blogged about their sinful crème brûlée Krapfen here.
In summer I tried out their steak sandwich which tasted pretty good but I wished there was more meat under that huge heap of arugula salad and parmesan cheese.
Somehow I am not a huge fan of black forest cake, probably because my sister was obsessed with it when we were small and I got fed up after numerous of black forest cakes.
This pretty little cake was not bad, it was surprisingly light and fluffy and not heavy at all.
Another time I went there with Coco after being back from London and we enjoyed those little treats of fruit cake.
I sadly haven’t been there for a while as you can tell from my summery pictures but I do plan on dropping by soon.
One of my favourite seasons is Autumn and mainly because of all the great dishes you get at the moment. Nothing better than a hot stew or soup on cold and windy November days :)
Ströck Feierabend recently opened near Landstraße and already has been praised by many for their breakfast and their dinner.
I immediately liked their concept of using mainly regional and saisonal fruit, vegetables (they even have their own garden in the 22th district) and meat and finally had a chance to drop by.
The Mister and me went with the recommendation of the waitress and opted for the marinated heart cherries with their home-made yoghurt sorbet instead of cake.
It is the perfect summer dessert! I expected less cherries but a small hill of delicious cherries carried the refreshing sorbet with a huge brittle on top.
Definitely a great dessert that lets the seasonal fruit shine without distracting from it.
The ice tea the Mister ordered was a bit bitter, it really tasted like plain and pure tea but some sweetness was missing.
The glasses look so pretty though.
Trying to act normal. On all other pictures I look like some crazy cake monster.
After food I sneaked inside to take some dessert home and after a long time (can you blame me?) in front of the huge display of delicious baked goods I chose the crème brûlée Krapfen.
I did not expect it to be so good!
As soon as we got home I snapped some pictures and then sliced this pretty piece in half. Oh my I did not expect it to be filled to the brim with vanilla custard.
The caramel crunch on top with that oozing vanilla goodness is just out of this world.
We stuffed our faces with it and lived happily ever after! ;)
Have a great week-end everyone!
