Opening up in the hip hotel known as 25Hours is a new restaurant with its roots in Sicily, Italy. Ribelli they’re calling it and according to their Facebook page, it’s a revolution to the typical Italian kitchen. What they mean by this, we’re guessing, is that at Ribelli they’re offering a whole different take on what you normally find in Italian restaurants around town.
The interior will have you staring, and the dishes (especially their Neapolitan pizza) will have you moaning. Official opening is this coming Friday, 6 September.
Opening times MON: closed TUE–FRI: 10am–7pm SAT: 9am–3pm SUN: closed
Fish ahoy! Fischerie is a joint serving up fresh freshwater fish from Austrian lakes (gosh, what a tongue twister, ey?). Their focus here is a simple as that – fish, fish and more regionally sourced and sustainably caught fish.
Every week, they’ve got a special theme going on, eg. ‘fish on bread’ or they serve up fish dishes including fish from a particular region of Austria. Each day also sees one specific dish served up between lunch hours.
Opening times MON: closed TUE–SAT: 9.30am–9pm SUN: 10am–8pm
This new place looks nothing like your typical mediterranean restaurant. From pink chairs, to golden lamps, a palm wallpaper that spreads through an entire wall and their mirror wall that lets the room appear larger and brighter than your future (just kidding). Food–wise on the other hand, this place leaves you already dreaming and planning your next holiday in Greece, Italy, or Isreal.
Plus: Catering Service possible for all your office parties planned
Opening times MON–FRI: 11.30am–9.30pm SAT: 12pm–9.30pm SUN: closed
This small and hip looking Thai place is new in town and won’t stay unnoticed for long. We have no doubt it will be packed with Thai food lovers soon enough. Their papaya salad is supposedly super sour and spicy, and full of flavour, like the rest of their menu. Apparently if spice is your thing, you won’t regret paying Pumpui a visit.
Their menu is reportedly short, but full of tasty dishes straight off the streets of Thailand, like the fish dish pictured above, Pad Karpow.
Not far away from Karmelitermarkt, you can find the third and newest member of the Vietnamese cuisine eateries from the Nguyen family. If you’re wondering who this family is, they’re the ones behind what’s hailed by many as the best Vietnamese restaurant in the city, Viet Thao.
Serving up traditional Vietnamese dishes and drinks, like the Papaya salad, the Wantan–soup, and of course, the classic Vietnamese soup, Pho (they Nguyen family is famous for their Pho!).
If you decide to turn up on a Sunday, you are literally in for a Vietnamese treat: there are no menu orders! You’re just simply served dishes that the chef decides on from a menu that is authentically Vietnamese, just like in Vietnam.
Opening times MON: closed TUE–SAT: 5pm–12am SUN: closed
This small and cosy Japanese fusion tapas bar in the fourth district is a pop up set up by people behind Mochi. It’s serving only eight different Japanese inspired tapas, and stellar list of wines (and one brilliant cider).
The dishes on their menu change regularly but the constants that remain – they’re always inventive, always a creative twist on the Japanese kitchen, and always a new flavour experience.
You should defo’ check out this unique place before they close it down at the end of the year.
Plus: no reservations possible
Good to know… they have a nice al fresco garden out front
Believe it or not, a new Würstelstand has opened up in Vienna. We’re calling this brave as they’re doing so in an age when Vienna’s beloved sausage stands are closing down due to the raft of other fast food options popping up. But this Würstelstand is special. Well, we think it is. The owner is a super friendly fellow like every local sausage guy should be, and they’re doing a kind of gourmet version of the Würstelstand. All of their sausages are filled with meat sourced regionally and all made by small producers. All the info you need about where your sausage originated is in the menu. Plus, they have some quality beers on the menu, too.
