Hello guys! :) Yesterday, my boyfriend and I had spent the evening in Vienna to do some Christmas shopping today. As he had arrived at my apartment at around 6pm, almost starving, we decided to go to our favourite restaurant in town, which is called Levante. As I already mentioned in a lot of other posts, Levante is the restaurant my parents and I always went to and still go to when we're all together in Vienna. Esther loves it too, btw. :) As usual, we ordered our favourite meal named Iskender Döner, which basically is kebab prepared from thinly cut grilled lamb, topped with hot tomato sauce over pieces of pita bread and generously slathered with yogurt. Iskender kebap is one of the most famous meat foods of northwestern Turkey. Alright, now enough with the food descriptions, here's what it looks like:
Mhmmmmmm! :) After dinner we went for a little walk down the 'Graben', one of the most beautiful places around Christmas here in Vienna.
We were walking around and kept looking at the beautifully decorated shop windows.
Knowing, that the next pictures will probably cause a fight with Esther, Mike and I also went to Esther and my favourite shop, our temple, to put it in more dramatic words.. Meinl. Meinl is a high-end supermarket that offers products from all around the world, which makes it particularly interesting for us Austrians, I guess.
As we looked at our bellies that did not seem to burst from congestion yet, we decided to once again splurge on something, -both financially and calorie-wise. So we went to the typical spot every single tourist goes to when visiting Vienna. Cafe Sacher.
Cafe Sacher is situated next to Hotel Sacher, which is a five star hotel in the first district of Vienna, next to the State Opera. The Hotel was founded in 1876 by Eduard Sacher and is world famous for its specialty, the Sachertorte. Of course, we couldn't resist and get one for ourselves. :)
Expectably, the service there is excellent and we didn't even have to wait long to get a table. :)
Have a lovely weekend, you guys! :)
