Where to find/eat Mangalitsa in or around Salzburg?

Hoping to try this heritage breed on my upcoming trip. I will be in Vienna for a day (nache market maybe?) But would love to buy some and cook for friends or at least order off the menu. Any help with local Austrian sources would be great. Will report back if I get a chance to try it.

  1. I recommend you visit Dominik Spitzbart in Laakirchen. I bought some stock from him a few years ago. He makes neat products:

    If you are in Vienna, you might as well visit the Wiesners in Goellersdorf. That's where Mangalitsa (as far as the New World is concerned) all started:

      Heath -

      Thanks for the information; I have emailed the Wiesners and if all else fails will book a reservation for the restaurant Zum Weissen. I am a food professional looking to learn more about seam butchery and the Mangalitsa pig, very excited to see the product first hand!

        I wouldn't presume that Zum Weissen Rauchfangkehrer is going to have Mangalitsa. Stockner isn't there anymore.

        The Wiesners can probably tell you where to go in Vienna.
