Our second episode of Fork you Vienna! gets cheesy at a special little cheese bar in Vienna’s 9th district, Edelschimmel ( Servitengasse 5, 1090 ). We dedicate this one to those who love a good cheese pun, like, ‘don’t worry, Brie happy!’ And for those who’s drug of choice is cheese.
As Edelschimmel specialises in rare Austrian cheeses, this makes it a must-visit for anybody who gets a kick out of exploring the flavours and varieties of cheese.
Fork you, Vienna! is the food channel that takes you behind the scenes of the restaurants of Vienna doing amazing things. It’s the kind of series that you should watch if you find other food shows are too much about food 😉 Now get watching it below!
Where: Servitengasse 5, 1090
Without getting too cheesy (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves) this sweet looking place is what every cheese lover hopes heaven is like. With over 90 types of cheese behind their cabinet and the varieties constantly changing according to season, it’s quite possible that you can go to Edelschimmel every single day and still try something different each time (you know what they say, a different cheese a day keeps the doctor away…or something like that). Edelschimmel, is run by two young and passionate cheese pros, Klaus and Sarah.
You can get your cheese to go (feel free to ask hundreds of questions and for recommendations – they love it) or you can take a seat at one of the few tables inside and pair a cheese platter with the perfect wine. And if this isn’t enough, they also make a cheesy quiche which makes for the perfect starter! It’s worth mentioning that the owners drew inspiration for this project from places they visited in New York. And, after the success of their other venue “Pramerl and the Wolf” (which has one freakin’ Michelin Star!) they decided to join with Klaus to open this stylish looking place dedicated to cheese. This is the place where to broaden you cheese horizons and explore the many different smells, tastes and textures of cheese.
We suggest… you go there and order cheeses you can’t pronounce the name of, or never knew existed (you can have your normal brie any day of the week).
