Space Burger – New in Vienna

Where: Hoher Markt 8–9, 1010

Opening hours:
MON–SAT: 11am–10pm

You kind of expect to be eating a burger with a bright pink bun when turning up at a place called Space Burgers, right?  A whole bunch of imagination has gone into this place. The new place, Space Burger, is not only 100% vegan, it serves food that is even more far out and galactic than the name of the burger eatery suggests! Their burgers are funky, colourful and full of taste! Besides burgers being on the menu, there’s also hot dogs, donuts and homemade ice cream shakes in the mix.

Sang Sang 1060 – New in Vienna

Where: Gumpendorfer Straße 14, 1060

Opening hours: 
MON–THU: 12pm–3pm & 6pm–11pm
FRI–SAT & Holidays: 5pm–12am

A new Korean is in town. Sang Sang opened its doors on Gumpendorfer Straße late in 2019 in the site that used to be known as the Korean–Japanese restaurant, Hanil. But its a fresh start, with a new look and new crowd huddling around their tables. You could say it’s the newer, younger and hipper version of Hanil! The reconstruction of this place was very well received, meaning Sang Sang can get very busy, so be sure to make a reservation.

Seven North – New in Vienna

Where:  Schottenfeldgasse 74, 1070

Opening hours:
MON–SAT: 5pm–1am
SUN: 11:30am–3:30pm, 5pm–1am

The new edgy restaurant, Seven North, serves up Israeli-inspired, high-end cuisine that you can eat with your hands! The atmosphere is fun and casual, and the waiting staff will no doubt charm your pants off. It’s Israeli, but it’s not. Think of an Israeli chef that has traveled the world, particularly through the Mediterranean and Middle East, and thrown all of the best parts of the honest food in these kitchens into one menu.

Where: Traunfelsgasse 1, 1200

The concept, we assume by the name, is that this is an intimate place to enjoy quality food and drinks, while feeling at home. It’s all about cosy living room vibes at Wohnküche, and personal service. Up until 10pm, they’re cooking up in their kitchen wholesome dishes from regional and seasonal ingredients. Meanwhile, their quality wines, beers and long drinks will also have you staying on occasion late into the early morn’.

Opening hours:
SUN–THU: 9am–12am

What? Another Pub? Don’t we have enough of those already? – said no one ever! Vienna’s had another Irish Pub move in and it’s calling itself The Long Hall! Well, they’re calling the pub a international pub run by a bunch of Irish larks (we may have added the ‘larks’ bit). Like all pubs, it’s sports crazy, so you can catch all of the games there of whatever sport you can think of, while their menu is made up of some quality pub food – think fish and chips, Irish beef stew, with a few creative and unexpected dishes thrown in, too.
