Hidden on a cobbled-stone street close to MuseumsQuartier in Vienna, Kussmaul is definitely a gem of a place. It’s the perfect spot for any moment of the day: breakfast, late brunch, lunch or a fancy dinner. Or you can just stop by to enjoy a refreshing Aperol, good coffee & one of their amazing sweets on the lovely terrace.
Extremely good taste is the proper description for this place, both in terms of the unique fancy decor & the delicious food!
I was there for lunch and I’ve tried the BURGER with BRIOCHE BUN, of the best I’ve had so far for various reasons – the meat was extremely good and cooked as per requested (I hate when you ask for medium rare and you get a well done burger); the brioche, OMG, simply delicious (I thank them for not using the regular, tasteless bread) & last, but not least the onion & pickles come on the side (in the end not everybody likes it). A vegan burger is also available for vegetarians. Another specialty of the Chef Mario Bernatovic (who is also the owner) is the LAMB BEUSCHERL (kind of a soup with thin strips of lamb) which tasted totally different vs what I am used to, but was extremely good.
I ended the meal with a luscious cheesecake, which came with fresh fruits on the side & a creamy cappuccino (and yes, the coffee is also good, everything is good here).
The guy serving us confessed that they are using only organic ingredients and that they have their own garden in the area (amazing, isn’t it?). They also have a small vegetable stand where you can buy fresh tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, onion & not only.
I will definitely go back to Kussmaul as I want to try more of their specialties and to enjoy the fine dining as well! And I also recommend this place to you as it is one of the best I’ve tried so far. I loved it!
