THE goulash

“Religious wars” have been fought over who has the best goulash in town. To many, it’s Café Anzengruber, which is run by a Croatian. To make the legendary Anzengruber goulash, onions are roasted for hours at low heat. Supposedly, it takes three (!!!) days for the goulash to be ready. The schnitzel is said to be great as well. 

But the goulash is by far not all the café has to offer. The evenings with live soccer on TV are the stuff that legends are made of. 

By the way, Café Anzengruber is not really a café. As in, you don’t usually go there for coffee and pastries. It is much more of a “beisl.” It only opens at 16:00, and you actually tend to drink beer here. 

Café Anzengruber also comes up in the novels of Thomas Glavinic, which leads us to assume that the author also frequents the place. But sshhhh – don’t tell anyone.
