Are you as excited for the weekend as I am?

It’s been a long, rough week fending off the cold and flu that everybody else seems to have picked up, and has been incapacitated by for days on end. Well, so far we’re going strong and haven’t gotten any full-blown anything.  Sign of relief. If there are two thing I would prescribe to not get sick — which obviously isn’t the flu-shot — it’s vitamin C and good food.

Earlier this week we treated our selves to a meal out at one of our local Japanese restaurants — Tokori — located in Naschmarkt. Since the weather has turned harshly cold once again, the green tea and scalding Udon soup was particularly soothing.

Japanese food seems particular fresh, and clean, and therefore healthy. That’s the kind of food that will keep you well during the winter.

The restaurant itself is a small, self-standing structure, it’s outer walls almost completely windows, which gives the space a comfortably open air.  It was our first time to this particular spot, and honestly, I think the atmosphere probably enhances the taste of the food, which is to say it’s probably not the best Japanese food in the city.

I hope everybody has an enjoyable weekend!

I couldn’t help but share my delicious pre-dinner snack with you. Wasabröd, fresh goat cheese and avocado.

So good. There is nothing like quality food.

There aren’t many things better than a birthday brunch!

The atmosphere in this small breakfast joint, called as is in the title, can tend to be quite popular amongst students of industrial design, fashion and those taking interest in alternative lifestyles and sustainable choices. In fact, it reminds me of my hometown, Portland, Oregon, where a place like this is common place.

It’s not uncommon to show up and have to wait; it isn’t just that there are only nine two-person tables and two staff, but that they don’t take reservations, either. As problematic as this may seem, the wait is well worth it.

The menu offers a wide selection of funky versions of traditional breakfasts, including a selection of vegetarian choices.

This is by far one of my favorite little breakfast/brunch places in Vienna. What about you? What kind of atmosphere do you prefer?

What a lovely weekend it has turned out to be. We had yesterday, Friday, off work, and ended up doing all our productive errands, so today we just ended up chilling around Naschmarkt and perusing strange items at the flea-market there.

On our way around the market, we noticed this lovely gathering of people eating – both in establishment and otherwise – and listening to jazz music from an unknown source. It was quite lovely, so we joined for a falafel wrap.

New amateur graffiti that caught my eye and made me smile. Perhaps “Meet here” would be an appropriate title.
