The foods of Austria

Authentic Austrian cuisine is marked by rich flavours and dominated by meats and carb dense foods like pastries and breads. From the fried Schnitzel to the hearty Goulash, there is an Austrian delicacy for every meal.
The Germans may argue that the Strudel belongs to them, but Austria has wholeheartedly taken to the sweet crusty Apfelstrudel, which is counted among their national foods. The Apfelstrudel is a flaky pastry that is lined with apple filling and qualifies as vegetarian Austrian food. The filling itself is spiced with cinnamon, sugar and added with raisins.
If there is one dish that is synonymous with Austrian cooking it is the Schnitzel! Known as the Wiener Schnitzel or the Vienna Schnitzel, it is counted among the Austrian national food dishes. It is a fried delight and is served with a side of fried potatoes and sour cream and onions. You can find this dish right from street food stalls to high-end restaurants.
