Prague, Vienna, Budapest with foodie teens
Fully respecting all opinions. We are traveling next week to Prague, Vienna and Budapest with two teen girls who have inherited their parents love of fine cusine! We are looking for great values, with Bohemian or outstanding local foods. Not looking for $125 tasting menus on this trip! Thanks to all!
This is a very good location. Right in the Museumsquartier is the Glacisbeisl, which is a great location when the weather is fine and outdoor dining possible. Their romantic garden is hidden in the upper floors of this old building, their beisl food is a good introduction into Viennese cuisine.
Within walking distance is the Spittelberg area, another old city quarter, with a selection of different inexpensive restaurants ( http://www.wien.info/en/shopping-wini...) , and the Burggasse, with a lot of Viennese and ethnic restaurants.
The city center can also be reached after a short walk through the imperial Hofburg palace. Inner city restaurants, OTOH, tend to be more expensive and are more likely tourists traps. A few are worthwhile to visit, such as Zum Finsteren Stern on Schulhof (open for dinner Monday to Saturday), or Gasthaus Pöschl on Weihburggasse (open for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week). ZFS is a modern inventive type of restaurant, Pöschl a basic beisl with good value for the money. Reservation recommended.
