We ate like Hobbits in Austria - missing no opportunity for a meal or a snack.
THREE GREAT EATERIES:
1. AUGUSTINER BRÄU-STUBL | SALZBURG
A 600 year-old brewery, where the beer brewed is by monks, then poured into a giant ceramic mug by the pint, and slid across the bench to you, spilling the foam all over the place. An indoors market of-sorts, where you are served meat, dumplings and sauerkraut. And a beautiful garden, where you can enjoy your meal, then stay for seconds and thirds, and ever more conversation.
2. MUNDING | INNSBRUCK
The best apple strudel I have ever tasted. Probably the best I ever will.
3. ZOLLWIRT | ST. JAKOB IN DEFEREGGEN
Recommended to us by a friend of my mother's, this restaurant is situated in a teeny-tiny village between the Alps. Patronised by all the locals, run by waitresses wearing traditional dresses without a touch of irony, and with a menu full of Tyrolean specialties written out in German and Italian, this place was the most authentic eatery of our entire trip. On top of that, the food was amazing.
