Good, cheap, interesting places to eat in Vienna
My boyfriend and I are visiting Vienna for five days in mid february, and would like to pack our schedule full of fantastic, cheap, interesting eating experiences. We are very interested in various ethnic foods such as Ethiopian, Iranian, Afghan, Burmese etc. Also we are interested in finding out where to have good traditional viennese fare. In short, we are interested to know where to find the best and cheapest local and ethnic food in the city.
Thank you in advance for your help, Kristina & Andy from Copenhagen

Thank you so much for the great reply. And you are right: when you are used to the prices in Copenhagen, most restaurants sound cheap. The restaurants you recommend all sound really good and interesting, and I am sure we will end up trying some, if not all of them out.
I agree with all the places recommended, but would like to add a few more:
There is an excellent Iranian restaurant, which is especially recommended for their inexpensive lunch menu: Pars on Lerchenfelderstrasse.
I do not know any ethiopian or afghan places, but there is a kosher restaurant serving jewish food from Buchara: Simchas on Taborstrasse. Their salads, their grilled meat, and their falafel are excellent.
